Hmmmm....such polite manners.

Don't have to thank me for answering your question in post 12...and you don't have to act the petulant sow after people pointed out how rude you were to other posters.

Honey, rather than vinegar as they say, but then again, who needs to help you in the future huh?

There's a Stephen at work who goes ape if you call him Steve - 'my name is Stephen not Steve' but for someone to say 'my name is Door4MrBenn not Mr Benn'. Quality!

Think I'll try this one on another board where I post as 'OutInTheSky'. The next time some idiot calls me 'Sky' I'm gonna give them some much deserved verbal.

BTW - interesting thread. Everything in the whole phone/txt/msg world is changing so fast and everyone seems to expect stuff for free nowadays - 'I can chat to my friend 8,000 miles away for free through our webcams on our gmail accounts so why should I pay for txts?'.

Well, why SHOULD you pay for text messages? That's a service that doesn't cost the providers a penny. Every penny you pay for text messaging is pure, raw profit.

Might be of interest to some - T-mobile are now offering a plan where you can call UK landlines for FREE! I think you have to have their international text plan, and this option will then cost you a further $5. I think it's pretty amazing.
