iMessage and Magic SMS Bills

Marco Arment:

iMessage is truly transparent: less-observant iOS owners won’t even realize that they’re using it.

iMessage is cool. I like it. I don’t know how useful it will be, though as not all of my friend have iPhones. It’s not cross platform and only compatible with the two newest iphones (iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4)

Their SMS bills will just start to decline next month.


Last time I checked there are only a few text message plans on AT&T and Verizon. Either unlimited or you buy a certain amount for each month and if you go over you pay for each message. Lastly you can just pay through the nose for each individual message. Most people I know have unlimited texting. So, they won’t see a decline in their bill at all. It’d be much better if people knew about this so they could actually alter their SMS plans, because that’s the only way their bills with “just start to decline next month.” Ha!
