I'm currently using talk mobile sim and I have got 3000text massages however when I send same text massage to more than 10 people at same time I get charged? Do other networks do this as well for example giffgaff? I'm thinking to buy sim only contract from giffgaff.

Thanks

If you send to over a certain number of recipients at the same time then I believe the text is treated as an MMS so chargeable.

This is done by the phone not the network.

yes its andorid which does this and it's very annoying. Will also happen if you send a single sms with more than 3 or 4 pages. you could try somehting like this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=skezza.main&hl=en_GB but doesn't work on new phones. I think the ace is still on gingerbread so should be fine.
