Thanks for the extra 1500 texts per month, i am not quite sure what i will do with 2,500texts each month but thanks anyway, appreciate the thought!

Any chance of also increasing my data threshold too so i can better utilize my android? Tongue out

In a way they have. average message size is around 190 bytes or so, so they have given you 285000 free bytes or 278 KB. its not much, but its something for nothing!

Yeaah I'd much rather extra data

$19 pack should be configurable :p

I'd choose something like 200mb/500txt/30min

For sure. Was nice to to get the extra texts, but considering I don't top even close to 500 a month I'd much rather prefer more minutes or more data.

To be fair, costs them a lot less to whack on another thousand SMS than data.
