02 text bundle – international txt msg rip off

I have an active life package from 02. This means that I am entitled to 100 txt messages per month. These txt messages only apply to messages sent to other mobile phones in the republic of Ireland. If I txt a UK number e.g twitter I have to pay 25 cent per txt message.
If I use the Internet and use 02’s web interface for sending txt messages, I can send a txt msg to any international number for free.
This does not make sense! Free to use the web txting service but 25 cent if I use my phone??
It is these micro rip offs that really annoy me. I am now strongly considering changing networks.
