To distract you to from the fact that its Wednesday, and you still have half the week to go…
Answers to one of the most popular questions I get all the time!!
Question: How much are Text Messages? Are they more expensive in the States? What are Premium messages and why arew they so expensive? Can I remove these?
Answer: Text messaging is available as part of a plan. For more information, visit Plans.
You can also pay per use at 20¢ for each message sent or received within Canada.
For each text message you send from Canada to a recipient outside of Canada and the U.S. there is an additional charge of 15¢ per message if you have a Text Messaging plan, and if you do not have a Text Messaging plan, the pay per use rate is 35¢ per message.
Messages sent or received while outside of Canada is charged at 60¢ per message, regardless of whether or not you have a messaging package on your plan.
