Re: Text and caller ID costs
Carriers have to pay feature licenses at switch such as caller id, call forward, etc.. But still thats nothing compared to what they are charging all customers.

As an ex mobile phone employee, I can tell you text, caller ID, call forwarding etc. cost providers nothing. The capability came as a direct result of digital network implementation.
Your're being ripped off to the N-th degree... it's pure gravy like the system and access fees.
