Text Messaging

When I get text messaged on my cell phone (nokia), I go to the Inbox folder and then it shows me either a closed envelope with a preview of the text message under it, or an opened envelope (if I opened the text msg) with part of the text message under it as well. Sometimes when people just text me short messages such as "ok" or "i'll be there", obviously it is short enough for the whole text message to be shown on the little preview without me actually opening the text msg. My question is: If I recieve the text message to my phone, but it is short enough to where I can read the whole thing on the preview without opening the text message, do I still get charged for that text msg even though I never opened it?

Thanks in advance

As the last person says you shouldnt be charged.

The person sending you the text will be charged at there local text rate.

Unless your receiving a text from someone abroad or you urself are abroad and reciving a text there. thats the only way you would be charged for it.
