New Skinny TXT bomb plan...

$4 a week for 5001 texts!

I can get by on my 100 a week, but ~21,600 a month is pretty awesome.

To send this many sms there has to be something wrong. It's for kids only, I push 800 a month but still.

It's just another way of saying "unlimited" and having a very clear "Fair Use Policy" really which is good in my opinion.

*10000* a month. Wow. I cannot conceive of the pain that must cause in one's thumbs.
