Phone companies LOVE text messages, they clog up the tubes like less then half a second of voice, and they are expensive enough that people run up huge bills. :)

Many providers have a "texting plan" though, that if you text a lot you might pay something like 0.01 per message, or even unlimited. If your brother is into texting it might be worth buying.

I have a 200-text/per month plan and I still don't use all of it up.

this might sound stupid... but this reminds me of last month, while on vacation, i left my CDMA phone at home (use my GSM one while travelling)... and i get a lot of callers. i completely forgot to tell them i was on vacation. big mistake. everybody took turns leaving 5-10 minute voicemails and soon, they used up 200 minutes (my plan). when i got home, i found that i ran out of minutes. for this entire month. (because my plan allows 200 minutes/month but allows me to take some minutes from the next month to account for overuse) no callers for august i guess.

lol talking directly on the phone is faster and more fun with less effort.

He can get an unlimited texting plan from virgin mobile for $20. Sometimes this is cheaper than turning a whole family plan into unlimited texting, especially if the rest of the family didn't use enough texts to justify it in the first place.

And No contract!
