What a waist of paper...I hope they are just exaggerating. I did not think any carrier list text messages line by line on a bill but maybe she had 14,000 phone calls on top of her 14,000 text messages.

Apparently, she has no life. Seriously, I like to take a breather from texting on the weekend or during the weekdays. I mean, my thumb starts to hurt and cramp after awhile.

That is quite a few if you are talking about just sent, but if its sent and received I work for a cell phone company and I have seen a 14 year old who did almost 30,000 in one month.

well unless they have paperless billing, its gay because it is very eco-unfriendly. maybe thats why vzw leads in profitability...ATT focuses on showing a detailed texting section which is uneccessary.

they have paperless billing as well, but it has to be requested. of course u can view it online also.

not everyone texts that much either though. and if u do not have the internet, which some dont, it is very much so necessary to see your bill on paper form. so think before you speak.

if you don't have internet you should not have a cellphone! if you dont have internet you are obviously poor or are too lazy to go to a local library. yea its good to see your bill on paper but not the text message details.

Im not sure if TMO's customers know what the "internets" are, or even how to use "the google." They are too busy hiding their sidekick from their manager at Burger King while on the fryer.

Have him send a copy of the bill to phonearena and maybe he can get his own story too!

that is nothing compared to some of the other bills we att reps have seen since releasing the unlimited text plans! The highest I have seen so far is right under 30000 messages for one user on a family talk plan with the 30.00 unlimited family text.

30,000 text messages is not necessary. there is no reason for it! they must seriously have no life, no job or no school ahah lol
