    I do.

    My cell carrier charges me $0.10 per text message, either sent or received.

    I've never paid more than $0.50 in a given month for text messages, except once when my carrier kept spamming me with text message advertisements and I had to call them to stop. Fortunately, they refunded the $1.20 that I sent.

    Sure you can. Call your cell carrier and tell them you no longer want to receive text messages. They will disable them for you.

    I love that. Stick it to those bastards! :D

    Cell phone companies really piss me off (Cingular kept my phone on while I was in Iraq & charged me 2 grand), but getting the government involved is just asking to make things worse.
