That's 15 SMS/minute nonstop for 30 days. Sleep NOT factored in.

Yeah this seems like it must be an automated thing or perhaps signing up for services that give texts alerts. That's just insane. And a 13,000 page bill? I would have hoped someone at AT&T would notice that.

Also, that large of a number displayed on the SMS icon clearly indicates that he's just receiving a ton and not checking them and/or replying back.

Of course he didn't do it manually.... that's insane.

He still took up the bandwidth, though. Now, SMS bandwidth is bountiful, but MMS? It's gonna get ugly...

MMS take more than 4 seconds each to send, so this guy is going to have some trouble giving that one a try.

I can take the network going through hiccups to prevent idiots like him from sending 600,000+ MMS messages. All for it...
