I am surprised by some of the heartless comments on this story. How do people expect the poor to afford internet access for their computers, Netflix streaming, their game consoles, and tablets unless we all help them?
Idiots are getting them. Basically they get a text from someone/something they don't know and instead of ignoring like a reasonable person would they text back which starts the charges.

They need to thin out their product matrix a bit. Also, get a little more competitive with storage. Make the base high end models with 64GB of storage (iPad Air 2), base low end models would be okay with 32GB.
All models should have touch ID and full ApplePay compatibility just like the iPhone 6/6+...
