For Verizon I think it's either 10 cents or 20 cents, depending on the plan. Multi-media messages are 50 I believe, but they may be more nowadays. It's obviously cheaper just to tack on a set of them to a phone plan though, like 250 for $5 a month. I think I pay $25 for unlimited, despite the fact that I send one text a month if that. Silly father in law is on my plan and text crazy, but I'll leave that story for another day.
Ah, for my track phone it's .3 minutes for every text and a full minute for every multi-media message. Some track phones have free incoming. I don't because all of my minutes are doubled. I rarely rarely rarely use that phone, but throwing that out there. What minutes cost is beyond me though. Haven't bought any in a year :)
In Australia, it is 25 cents per text messages and obviously MMS is is a tad more at 75cents per message....Lol, I know you were after the USA rates, sorry. I'm cross promoting our awesome country :) .....Optus is the best mobile phone carrier by far.
From standard US cariors, for txt msg that are not on a plan I have seen rates ranging from $.10 to $.35, and some only count outgoing while some count both incoming and outgoing.
i have the unlimited texting plan for verizon and its 15$ a month. but thats with a family plan...
it depends on the company and plan you have.
10p for most phone tarrifs in the UK
Five cents per message in or out.
Haha, Sammie the salesperson :)
