On May 5, TextMarks will stop delivering ad-supported messages to T-Mobile,
Virgin and Boost phones

As you might have seen in the news, T-Mobile, in addition to Sprint/Nextel
(including Virgin and Boost, who use the Sprint network), will institute an
additional charge for each text message sent by businesses such as
TextMarks. We have worked with other companies in the text messaging
industry to try to convince these carriers to revert this charge, but we
have been unsuccessful. This additional fee is greater than the revenues
that can be generated by placing ads in the text messages, so,
unfortunately, we will be forced to stop delivering free ad-supported
messages to T-Mobile, Virgin and Boost in addition to Sprint and Nextel,
which we discontinued ad-supported support for on April 1st. We will
continue to deliver ad-supported text messages to subscribers of Verizon,
AT&T, and other wireless carriers.
