Texters misspell to optimize, not because they don't know the spelling :)rnrnWorks best with dark colored tees. For light colors, black ink can be used.rnrnSpecial thanks to Charley, Pedro, Tom, and Miko!

Hi, Pleasus.

Yeah, I figured there'd be a bit of confusion, given the different networks and sims. I based this on my ancient nokia mobile phone which is still alive and kicking for several years.

Basically the 892 is the number of characters remaining and the 1 indicates that this counts as 1 philippine peso (yep, I come from a nation of texters, although I never really text that much). When there are 757 characters remaining, the message will now cost 2 pesos, and so on and so forth. My sim/phone combo maxes out at 6 pesos worth of messages in one send.

However, the calculation is off by 2 characters, since I did not account for the two periods. It should say 890/1 instead of 892. I'll just charge it either to experience or to artistic license. :D

Nothing to be sorry about, I still made a mistake, although it's a different one. : )

I guess I didn't consider the bigger audience. Sorry, my bad. And yes, it's still an easy edit, if the powers-that-be would require it.

By the way, your "just a little more" design was hilarious!

$5 I really like the old skool Nokia vibe! Like the tee colour too!

I just learned how to get the model number of my phone! Just type #0000 and the first thing that is displayed is the model. I don't know if this is true for all phones or if this is just for nokia.

So now I know that my dinosaur of a phone is a nokia N1200. Here's what it looks like:

I was on the fence between keeping it and just putting a line to separate it from the owl. I ended up keeping it to keep a cellphone lcd look/theme. Thanks for the feedback, everyone.

Mr Vela

nice idea.cool
