I do not have a text plan and do not text. The only thing I use SMS for is to notify me when I have voice mail. I get a notice stating I have an SMS and asks if I want to receive it. If I accept, I then get charged. However, the message I receive already shows its from the voice mail system, so I never bother authorizing it. I simply ignore messages from elsewhere. Since I never accept, I never pay. I'm on Rogers.
Since I only text to 1 or 2 people, I find the My 5 is good for me. Unlimited incoming/outgoing texts to any up to 5 people. It's completely ridiculous that texts cost so much, and that INCOMING costs. It makes you think twice before sending a text because you don't want to cost the other person money.
I do not text message very often. I do however resent the fact that when I signed up with Rogers, all incoming text messages were free and now they charge. I resent paying for something that I have no control over. Anyway, I complained to Rogers (Office of the President) and they provided both my wife and I with a free unlimited text messaging plan.
