I am absolutely amazed that that a carrier has the ability to raise text messaging per minute rates by 100% from 5 cents to 10 cents overnight. It might not seem like a big deal but if you use a lot of text messages and didn't want to purchase the "all you can eat" plan its a big jump. I can understand a 20% rate hike to from 5 cents to 6 cents but 10 cents? I bet we see some news on this in the coming months when heavy text messaging customers start to look at their bill and they are not on a text messaging plan. I smell some law suits coming and probably even a class action suit. Without any prior knowledge I just received a 100 minute phone card from a previous class action law suit consumer settlement. Worth a whopping $6. Yippee!
