T-Mobile Kicks in Higher Text Prices

T-Mobile, the smallest of the nation’s four major wireless carriers, has increased the price of sending text messages on its network from 15 cents to 20 cents, according to Gearlog:

“The change, which goes into effect on August 29th, matches similar raises from Sprint, who bumped up their per text charge to $.20 in October of last year and Verizon, who raised their postpaid customer charges from $.15 to $.20 (depending on their plan, prepaid Verizon subscribers pay between $.02 an $.10 per text).”

Last week, T-Mobile announced that it was joining other carriers in pro-rating its contract cancellation fees.
