I have unlimited texting too, but my phone guy (he is the only person I will buy phones from and has become a personal friend) said that it still costs money. It doesn't matter that you have unlimited. SOOOOOOOOO I would ask before you add it to your phone.

Just look:

GANZ- "Come join Twitter! We give out free prizes and information and sneak peaks! Look, we just awarded this new great pet!"
Twitter- "You need to be over 13 to be elegible for a Twitter account."
Webkinz World players (a site directed at kids)- "But most of us are under 13! How are we supposed to join Twitter and get prizes?"

Think about it, the majority of Webkinz players are under 13! So does it make sense for Ganz to try to encourage members to get Twitter accounts? No, it doesn't. It's almost like they are trying to make us break the Twitter rules...
I completly understand. I think Ganz is trying to stay up with everyone else, but kids can't join. I think they are tyring to get parents involved. Even the survey this week asks about parents.

Ok, I just got off the phone with Verizon, who is our cell phone carrier. The guy said (at least for Verizon customers) that incoming Twitter messages to your phone are text messages, so if you have unlimited texting there is no additional charge. I do not pay for internet through my phone, so I can't visit the Twitter website on it without being charged, but the messages themselves are considered texts. Just wanted to pass this along, since apparently it may vary depending on your cell phone provider. To make sure, I'd call your individual carrier to verify. Hope that helps someone!

I agree. I don't want to join Twitter because I don't like it. I'm sure there are great uses for it, but since Ganz has their own sites (WebkinzNewz anyone?) why can't they do a similar thing on their own site? I think it is ridiculous to join another site just to win items from Ganz. They've had contests on their own site before, this just seems silly.

I think Ganz is trying to be too trendy and forgetting that the focus group is children (most under 13). Yes parents play too, but that was not the original target audience (I'm guessing).

Very disappointing Ganz!!!

Thank you for letting us know. I have Verizon and my guy told me that it isn't free. I will have to have him clarify.
