Another tip sheet, this time from someone who wishes to remain a bit more anonymous, hit read more to read it all. As before, this is a collection of tidbits of information that is either new or fell through the headlines.
Includes new SMS info, and new product (handset/aircard) info…
It’s now pretty much confirmed that if you had Vision at the beginnning of February, that you are grandfathered into unlimited SMS for as long as you keep Vision on your plan. If you change Vision plans/packs you may lose this though, so we’re working on confirmation of how that situation will play out.
Receipients of SMS messages from other carriers will be charged. It is unclear if SMS/Notifications that originate from a computer will also be billed, though it appears that it is unlikely they will be.
