A teen texting on a Verizon phone that did not have a texting plan has gotten her phone smashed by her dad! and Verizon has agreed to bring down the bill to a reasonable level. As Gizmodo mentioned, I would have saved a little more by not smashing the phone but taking it away from her.
So if you do not want texting, make sure you disable it. Carriers like Verizon charges for each incoming and out going text messages if you do not have a plan.
