Its funny how technolgy differs here. Some things are so advanced and others seem so behind.
Cell phones (mobiles): text messages are the most expensive things on earth here. Ok not really ( 35 fils, which is 10 cents) but you do have to pay per text, most packages come with 30 texts a month.
Wifi: the reason texts are so uncommon is because people use wifi. i actually carry around a hotspot with me.
