Today Consumer Cellular announced that it is now offering basic data and messaging plans as part of its service. The Wireless Web feature will allow Consumer Cellular customers to send picture messages, check news, as well as download ringtones, wallpaper images, screen savers and games. Messages cost 10 cents to send or receive, though bundles are also available. Wireless Web will include up to 1MB for $5, 5MB for $10, and 10MB for $20. Overage charges for all three plans will cost 1 cent per kilobyte. Consumer Cellular markets its services to the senior population and does not require contracts.

LOL, Senior?? for What??

Seriously, they'll spend more time trying to explain senior people on how to send a txt/pix msg or doing some web browsing than getting more $$ out of them.
