Why Wireless Carriers Fear Unlimited Anything

My colleague Gary Stein forwarded this article to me a couple of days ago. A gentleman sent 182K text messages in one month and received a 1400 page phone bill.

It reminded me of a phone bill that a friend of mine gave to me once. I haven’t counted the pages, but it’s probably a 12″ stack of paper – I use it as a foot rest at the office. It is so big that it was delivered in a box by UPS. Also, no charges. There wasn’t even COD on the bill itself.

My friend’s SMS’s were generated by a machine. I’m not sure how this gentleman generated 182K messages – or by his estimates 6000 per day. His goal is 10,000 per day. 31 days per month x 24 hours per day x 60 minutes per hour … he was busy and that assumes he didn’t sleep.
