Recently, Bell and Telus decided to charge 15 cents for each incoming text message (unless you’re covered by a plan.)

After getting nagged by our industry minister, Bell and Telus have agreed to reverse charges from spam.  When you receive spam, you will need call your carrier, wait on hold for one hour and finally try to challenge those charges – this is disingenuous, who other than a gullible idiot would fail to see that?

The wireless spectrum auction was a wasted opportunity. SMS charges are high in Canada because of government interference, specifically foreign ownership restrictions.  You won’t fix this with more government interference.
