    This demonstrates the real purpose of charging for incoming messages — to pressure people to commit to text messaging plans because it’s the only way to avoid the risk of unwanted incoming message charges.

    If they can scare enough people into adding a $5 package ($3 for Telus), the boost in revenue could be significant.
