    Default deleting sms messages without opening them/not getting charged (t-mobile)

    I'm using my iPhone with T-Mobile in the US and was surprised to find out that T-Mobile does not offer any way of simply deactiving sms capabilities on my account. Instead, the rep just told me not to open the messages and I wouldn't be charged. The problem is, I can't seem to figure out how to do this on the iPhone. Whenever I get a text message, it asks me to open it or ignore. I always press ignore, then open the SMS program, but even there I'm shown the first little bit of the message, at which point I'm guessing the message is considered opened. Any help? I don't text message, but I inevitably have friends that don't respect that as such and don't want to get charged 15 cents each time they decide to send me one.

    Either tell your friends your situation or get the $4.99 for 400 text messages plan, that might be your answer. Thats what I have. I believe there is no way to deactivate SMS on any phone?

    I have a T-Mobile prepaid sim card in my iPhone and i only get charged 2 cents for incoming texts and 10 cents for outgoing texts so it doesnt bother me much.

    The rep is wrong. A "set billing option" is set the moment that the message is forwarded onto your phone. Since the receipt of SMS is controlled by the CommCenter, you can't easily disable this feature either. So, either 1) your friend goes for the 400 message plan, or 2) you wait for the iPhone SDK to be released in February and wait for the dev or a number of CommCenter customization tools to be released (assuming, of course, that Apple includes such low-level dev features in their SDK).
