Bell Mobility Sucks!

I just can’t believe it! These cellular companies in Canada are taking advantage of consumers. Bell Mobility and Telus want to charge for incoming text messages. 15 cents EACH!! What a rip off. You can avoid this if you sign up for a monthly text plan. This maybe okay for the young at heart who are used to texting, but what about those who don’t have a monthly text plan. Your option is to turn off text messaging all together if you don’t want to pay.

This is bulls**t. How much gouging are we going to allow these companies to get away with. Rogers and Fido are no better. It used to be that if you had a text plan, you could send text messages to anyone in North America as part of your plan. No more. They now want you to pay 25 cents per text message to people in the US even though you have a text plan. I currently pay $16 for a value pak that includes 2500 outgoing text messages. Now they want more money. Shame on you Rogers and Fido. Shame.

What is needed is a regulatory body to keep these people in check. Canadians have one of the highest cellular rates in the WORLD. And they want more. NO!
