WIND Mobile Pricing: Post your Rumours Here on Texting, Minutes, Data Plans and more!
For now, we really have no idea what WIND plans to actually charge. Nothing official has been announced on the WIND Mobile Website. See the comment below for rumoured pricing, or post your own rumours!
However, it is reasonably safe to say that the main cost for operating a cell phone network is in setting everything up rather than the cost of each individual minute or text sent.
In fact, text messages cost practically nothing to send. Hundreds, if not thousands of text messages could be sent in the amount of data required to transmit one minute of speech. The text messages are also able to be sent when space is available. Personally, I think text messages are stupid, email is much more practical, and has stood the test of time (email predates the world-wide-web). Over time, the line between texts and emails will blur substantially.
