    Default Messaging Charges?

    I just received the following email message from AT&T:

    Our systems have detected that you have already accumulated over $20 in messaging charges this month. Based on your current usage, you could reduce your messaging charges by subscribing to a monthly plan. As a valued customer, we are sending you this email to make you aware that messaging plans are available that would help to make your bill more predictable.

    I thought text messages were part of my data plan. I also do not text very much. Also, I will do without if there are no other options......

    Is there services or app where I can text for free? Other ways to avoid the above and still be able to text once in a while??

    Probably a bogus text. Check your plan before you do anyrhing

    I am not going to pay AT&T an additional $20 a month for unlimited texting. I also don't want to pay for texting, since I consider it an optional activity. Therefore I decided to set up texting through Comcast Xfinity which, apparently, is part of my service. Seems to do the job.......

    I wasn't suggesting you pay AT&T anything extra. You said you "thought unlimited texting was part of your plan". I was suggesting that you may be right and that the message was bogus.

    Stupid me did not realize that it was not part of my plan. I thought texting was like email and included. It sucks that they charge extra (and so much) for texting. It would be $20 a month to add unlimited texting to one phone. Not worth it for me..... Especially since I can use my Comcast digital phone number to text, which is included.
