It's $5/month for 200 message on Verizon. Poor deal imo unless you have no friends.

With all the free alternatives out there (kakao, whatsapp, Google Voice, etc.) I don't see the point in paying your carrier for something that should be free.

And iMessage is EXCELLENT when it works. I love to be able to switch from my computer and my phone, and have everything sync up. Also, free MMS and videos is excellent.

Really, carrier messaging is a dated concept. $0.20 per message means almost $0.20 profit for the carrier for doing nearly nothing.
