"Message and data rates may apply."

Recommended Posts

Until a couple of months ago, we did!!  My wife was hanging on to a very old, very cheap plan that gave us something like 100 texts per month. When it was just she and I communicating we never needed more than that. But as we've made additional contacts through the years that seem to insist on texting as their primary form of communication, we finally had to bite the bullet and get a "modern" plan...

I've gotten into a couple of groups that organize things exclusively by group text and they can generate 30 texts in a couple of minutes as various members weigh in on times, dates, etc. I guess it beats that many phone calls!

The old VZW grandfathered UDP plans do have texting limits.  We still have 2 of them.

My sister was hanging on to an old plan also.  But I explained to her how these newer plans a much better.

I also have a trackfone which deducts minutes and texts.  But I very rarely use that phone. 

Data would be everyone’s concern unless they have an unlimited plan.

I 'm  pretty sure all 'new' plans have unlimited talk and text.

Even if you have unlimited on calls and texts it still cost as you are paying for it.

 I wasn't aware of that.

You are paying for it in the sense that the unlimited plans cost more than the older cheaper plans that are not unlimited.

Perhaps, but that isn't the gist of the thread.

True, but not unlimited data as I said.

How is it not the “gist” of this thread?  Anyone that has an older plan is charged after so many texts, minutes or Gigabites.  I think that has been the point.  That there are still older plans out there.  So Message and Data rates may apply still means things to some people.  So they have to disclose it.  If you are just looking for a number, I would guess that 95-98% of people have and unlimited calls and texts.
