Collaboration Can be Expensive

Extending my cell phone contract recently brought a surprise. My unlimited text messaging feature had been removed, and now I had a set limit per month except for those with the same carrier. I thought, well, no big deal, I’ll just text less.

For those that use this feature, it’s very handy and unobtrusive. Net, an excellent way to collaborate. Often I need to talk with a colleague and I know that they are busy so that they will likely not answer their cell, so I text them to call me when they are free. I use the same approach when people try to reach me. So needless to say, having a limited set of texts really sucks. Well, just when I was getting over feeling sorry for myself, I saw this article:

What Carriers Aren’t Eager to Tell You About Texting

Wow, what a ripoff!! Give this article a read, it will open your eyes. Now I know that I better fight to keep unlimited texts.

Live and learn.
