    What's wrong? You can always remove a person if they get annoying/abusive/etc.

    Also, you don't give any personal info. You just have a name, and they send things to a name. You also have to accept if a person is a friend or not to let them send texts to you.

    How much data does it use? I'll get it but I've only got 500mb per month on my phone.

    They're about the size of a text message each, which is a couple of KB's.

    A couple of KB? Really?

    Divided up into ASCII, each character is 3 bytes (right?).

    The maximum size of a text message is 160 characters.

    So the maximum size of a text message is 480 bytes.

    now you mention it...
    so you mean my provider has been lying to me for all those fucking years?
    to clarify, my provider regularly checks how much data somebody's using.. And when I send or recieve a text, it adds it to a little counter. That counter always shot up a couple of KB's when I got or recieved a text. Just one.

    They probably round it up just so they can charge more.

    I thought every character was one byte. e.g. in a .txt file on a computer, each character is one byte. (Because there the 255 ASCII characters, and 255 possibilities for a single byte).

    EDIT: Although of course there is other information that needs to be sent too. (Receiving number, sending number, date and time stamps, header etc.). In reality, it is probably a fair bit bigger than 160 bytes.

    Downloaded and installed to my iPod, feel free to Ping me anytime about anything though i'll only get it at home as that's the only place I get WiFi (though hopefully will be getting a Peel520 next month so I have an interesting new phone+GPRS on my iPod [​IMG])

    Edit: Forgot my username *d'oh*
