TELECOM Digest OnLine - Sorted: "Good News" From Virgin Mobile

"Good News" From Virgin Mobile

Just got this Virgin alert message:

"Starting 3/15/06, text messages will cost just 5 cents per message to
send & receive. Thumbs up!"

Of course, prior to 3/15/06, text messages cost *nothing* to receive,
so naturally this is terrific news for those of us who have things
like traffic alerts forwarded to our phones.

Maybe instead of calling them "Virgin Alert" messages, they should
call them "Virgin Spin" :-).

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Have you tried calling Virgin customer
service to ask if they meant 'receive' as well as 'send'? Is that one
transaction (send & recieve [elsewhere]) or two transactions (send)
and receive alsewhere? In other words 5 cents to send and 5 cents to
recieve or just 5 cents total. PAT]
