I recently noticed that my credit was going very fast on my Meteor pay-as-you-go phone. When i checked up online i saw that i was being charged between once and five times for each text message i sent. I rang Meteor about this and was informed that if a text is longer than standard you get charged extra for it. When pressed on this the girl said that a standard text is around 160 characters. This is not mentioned anywhere on their website, i always assumed a text was as long as your phone let you type in. I am still waiting for them to return my call complaining about this, that was five days ago now! So watch it, you might think its cheaper to text than to call, but in reality i have been charged a euro or more for sending one text message! I don't know if any other networks are doing this, but it's worth checking up on!
