    Question Sending Fido Web Text Messaging & Email Text thru Web .

    http://websms.fido.page.ca/2way/?lang=en

    If I send a web text message from the above site or an email text message using [10-digit phone number of recepient ]@fido.ca from my email , does the person/recipient get charged for the incoming text message or email received from me when I send it from the web or is it FREE to receive them .

    Note : I am sending both of the above thru the web and not thru my handset so I don't know if they are treated differently than normal text/email sent thru your handset to others .

    I am assuming the web text message sent by me must be free to receive , not sure if the email sent by me will be free to receive or not for the recepient .

    it is free to receive Text messages for Fido Clients if sent from fido.ca or rogers.com. However if its sent as an email number@fido.ca & or numbers@pcs.rogers.com the receiver gets a text message which they get charged for & the message still doesn't come up you have to reply to the message with the word yes to it & then you get it.

    Is the text message charge which the receiver gets ( when sent as email ) just a normal low charge of say 15 cents to 25 cents or do they get charged some premium charge which is much higher ?
