Im hearing impaired. My family depends on text messaging to keep in
touch.
Also I love upoc.com. It's annoying that they often send DOUBLE
messages.

I had media net $19.95 a month, 1000 text.
I get my bill.almost 4000 incoming messages. I am so screwed, $168 in
text!!!!
I am panicked. I called Cing. they wont cut me a break AT ALL!!
Im faced with cancelling the entire account and spening the reast of
the summer paying off approx $260 in cell plus $175 on cancellation
fees.
Its unfair that upoc often sends double texts mesages. God I with they
had unlimited messenging.

So does anyone have any suggestion ojn how I can save my credit and
keep my phone? Im despreate

Change plan to Text/Instant Messaging 2500 $19.95 your overage would be
..03*1500=$45. total for 4000 would be $64.95 plus your phone plan. Ask the
billing department if they will accept installments on that bill. How long
is your contract and where are you using your phone ? Do you use the voice
side ? If not a two way pager is possible, coverage map here:

6,000 messages is $30.45/month $99 for the pager, $25.00 activation fee

This place has the device free and unlimted messages $49.95:

T-mobile has the sidekick II $249 unlimited messages $29.99:

You could get a older sidekick on ebay or shop around for a deal on the new
one.

Another thing you can do is buy unlimited GPRS (medianet) and use email
and/or Instant messaging on your phone using an application like Agile
Messenger. You have to have smartphone (Micosoft mobile/Symbian etc.)

Unlimited GPRS starts at $20/$25.
