    Would be an incredible idea if Text Messages didn’t cost money per message with some of the carriers. When the kid’s bill goes over and the parent gets mad and pulls them from that church that doesn’t respect other people’s privacy.I love the idea of text messaging, but it is kind of ridiculus that you can’t turn it off.

    Good point. I only use text messaging in connection with our automated network monitoring system and emergency 24×7 tech support. So I’ve never worried about or even thought about the cost.
