That’s the cost of texting without a plan. With a texting plan, it’s still a total rip-off:
Not that those bundled plans are reasonable either: For instance, AT&T offers 1,000 texts for $10, which works out to a stunning $62.50 per megabyte.
The carriers make at least 80 cents on every dollar from this — and probably even more. It’s a total scam. And they’re surprised that everyone is trying to kill this now?
