Holy cow on the $230 bill….one more reason I use the pay as you go service.
I don’t know how to “reply” to a current thread, with the board being
in the current condition that it is in, it is actually aggrivating to
not be able to view messages, individually, instead of having to
recieve the daily thread as the only means to see messages, then have
to sift through them, because I have no interest in Autism/ADHD on a
budget board. Although I do “sympathize” with individuals that are
affected by it.
That being said, the reason I am posting, is I noticed that a lady
said she was annoyed with her husband using 411 on his cell phone.
Boy can I feel your pain. My son insist every month, even though I
COMPLAIN each month, on using 411 at least 8 times…….
When I got my cell phone bill yesterday, it was $230.00. I hit the
roof. once i called the provider, to discuss the bill, he had used
$40.00 worth of easy edge (internet features) during the month.
that now has a block on it.
when i asked her could i put a block on 411, laughing when I asked it,
she said, “Well, there isn’t any reason he should be using 411, with
text messaging available” (I personally knew about the “FREE 411”
number, but can’t stand using it because they can never get it right)
anyway, she explained how he can use text messaging. I tried it, and
guess what it works.
I don’t have text messaging available for my phone, so If I send one,
it cost i think .20 cents. To recieve a text message is “free”.
So what you do is send a text message to GOOGLE. Google being the
telephone number of the receiver. Not the actual letters, but the
numbers assigned to the numbers on your phone pad.
Then you type in
your business or name you need the listing for and city state.
Example: Walmart Kalamazoo Kingdom Come……….then send the text
Within a few minutes you will start receive the text message in return
giving you the name address and phone number of the requested
business. If there is more than one listing in the town, it will send
a few messages back. If you don’t put the city state, it will send
numerous messages back for your area code, so be sure to do the city
Try it. It works. I couldn’t believe it.
So even if you
don’t have free text, the most it should cost you is around twenty cents.
