How many letters or words are considered as 1 text? Or can u just keep adding words until the txt box is full and that be considered as 1 text? Not sure if it pertains to how it is sent or how it is rcv'd. Ty

All of our new plans have unlimited texting so regardless of how long or many you send it's included in your plan.

What kind of phone do you have?Generally when you text there will be a # on the right hand side for the ammount of characters remaining for 1 text message. If that # is exceeded that counter will restart and start a 2nd text message. Just to add, you're looking at $0.60 a text for incoming and outgoing.
