I don’t have any number of free text messages on my phone. I’ve gotten a couple of text messages from people who don’t know this (one of my friends from school sent me one at Christmas) and that’s fine. I’m willing to put a little change from my pocket to hear from people I care about. That’s one thing. But yesterday, I got a spam text message. So, not thinking, I deleted it. Immediately, I regretted it. I called Verizon to see if they could do anything about it, but they said I was going to have to pay for it. I have to pay money to read ads??!! It’s ridiculous. If I’d not deleted it, I’d think about going to Richmond (since there’s not a Verizon store closer) to get something done about it, but I guess it’s too late now. Grr.
