Cingular today announced new pricing for its messaging plans. They have joined the other national carriers, offering a plan with a single bucket of messages that can be used for any message type. Subscribers can buy 200 text and multimedia messages for $5 or 3,000 messages for $20 per month. Other carriers offer similar plans, but typically offer more competitive pricing. Cingular has also changed the prices for its MEdia Net plans which include both messages and data. Users can get 400 messages and 1 MB of data for $10 and 1000 messages and 5 MB of data for $15. Unlimited data plans start at $20 for 200 messages and unlimited data and video or $30 to upgrade to 1000 messages.

Cingular says this is not true

Two different calls to CIngular to change my text messaging plan to this new pricing, both reps insisted this story is not true.
Thats quite strange since I've probably changed over a hundred customers over to the new packages. I don't understand how a rep could not know about changes like this. This isnt a small and simple change...its pretty big.
...
I called in and changed mine to the new pricing on Friday. I'd suggest calling in a 3rd time.
