Don't Text Me

http://www.npr.org/blogs/alltechconsidered/2009/06/please_dont_text_me.html?sc=fb&cc=fp

I was pleased to find that I am not the only one who doesn't want to pay extra for the ability to text, and doesn't appreciate the fact that if someone texts me (regardless of my desires) I get charged for it.

I had the ability to receive texts turned off on my phone. Paul, too.

Hmmm. I probably have the option too....somewhere in the fine print that I have never seen because I'm on someone else's account...

I had to call Verizon to get it done. They have to switch that option off from their end. The lady could hardly believe I wanted to turn OFF the ability to receive texts!

It's nice to not receive spam texts, which was all I'd ever get.

Thanks for cluing us in as I have Verizon too and don't want to get tests from the friends and/or relatives.
