I hate text messages. (Warning: I'm venting in this thread. I will be mad.)
Some bully and his friends bombarded my sister with text messages on her phone, and now Cingular is charging us over $200 and my dad is beyond furious. My dad won't do anything but yell about how much my sister's friends suck (even though they didn't send the messages) so I phoned Cingular. Turns out the stupid **** that I get is some crack-addicted high school dropout, and I can't get the little ****er to reason with me about these incoming message charges. So I told him to shut up and get me the guy in charge over there, who simply told me that there's no way to block incoming messages from specific numbers. So I told to guy to go screw himself and hung up.
I AM MAD. Cingular's nothing more than a cash-hungry trap to get you to send too many texts and get overcharged off the yingyang. I swear to God, the incoming charge crap was NOT in the contract. They must have added that, without warning, after we bought the phones.
