HI ALL,
I HAVE JUST FOUND OUT THAT IF YOU RECIEVE A TEXT MESSAGE OR JOKE AND YOU FORWARD ON TO YOU FRIENDS YOU WILL BE CHARGED MULTIMEDIA RATES FOR DOING THIS.
THE REASON FOR THIS IS THE TEXT THAT YOU RECIEVE HAS A FULLSTOP,COMA OR ANY EXCLAIMATION MARKS IN IT WHEN YOU FORWARD IT ON THE PHONE "CHANGES THE FORMAT FROM TEXT TO MULTIMEDIA FORMAT THEN YOU GET CHARGED WHAT EVER YOU PROVIDER CHARGES, IN MY CASE 30p PER MESSAGE PER PERSON.
THE ONLY WAY TO STOP BEING CHARGED IS TO EDIT THE MESSAGE BEFORE SENDING IT ON AND "REMOVE ALL EXCLAIMATION MARKS, FULLSTOPS etc ect THEN YOU CAN SEND IT WITHOUT ENCURRING ANY CHARGES,"OK".
A FRIEND OF MINE HAS HAD HIS HTC FOR 5WKS AND WAS EXSPECTING A BILL OF ABOUT 25.00, WRONG, TRY 84.40 JUST FOR PASSING ON TEXT JOKES TO FRIENDS AT 40p A GO "ouch".
