    When you receive a text and you open it does it count as one message? I only have 200sms so is it 100 receiving and 100 outgoing?

    All messages count whether you open them or not. It can be any combination of both incoming and outgoing that add up to 200.

    Yes, I'm VERY thankful for the unlimited package as well, not for me but for my soon to be 19 year old daughter. It's relatively new to AT&T and her text messaging costs had been a point of contention for some time :) No worries anymore!

    I started off with the 200 txt plan, but after the first week of having the phone i already knew i had to upgrade. So i went to the 1500. So far so good.

    I started with 200 for my phone as well convinced that would be enough. I hated text messaging because I wasn't very good at it (actually I was awful!) and it was easier and faster for me just to call :)

    That all changed with the iPhone. It's soo easy now and I really enjoy it (now I understand better why teenagers like it so much!)

    For me, I went with the $5 unlimited AT&T to AT&T since most of my messages were between my 2 daughters, both on AT&T. The other 200 are plenty for the rest of my messaging.

    Just a word of caution......I've "heard" that that information isn't always updated "up to the minute". I would be careful assuming that the number is 100% accurate.

    Yeah you're definitely correct on this. In fact, we have 5 phones with AT&T and 3/5 phones will update at least a day before the other 2 phones. It's really weird how it works. So don't just assume you're fine because it can take the system a while to catch up.

    Is there a way to change the text message alert sounds to custom sounds?

    Not at this time. If you want to jailbreak when it comes available then you can do it. But the stock phone does not have this option. Many people wish it did.

    There is no way to change it unless you have it jailbroken I think.
