AT&T (Cingular) yesterday announced messaging and data plans that include unlimited messages. For users who only send and receive messages, but do not use any data, unlimited text and multimedia messages will cost $20 per month. AT&T also offers new MEdia bundle that include unlimited messaging as well as unlimited data for $40. In addition to these two unlimited plans, subscribers can add unlimited messaging to other AT&T subscribers (unlimited M2M) to any messaging or data plan for $5 per month. Verizon also recently introduced select plans with unlimited messaging; Sprint and select MVNOs already offer the feature.

T-Mobile already does this... but less expensively

T-Mobile has offered unlimited messaging for $14.99 over a year at this point; not only that, they've got unlimited messaging for an entire family plan for as much as AT&T charges for a single line. FT messaging (all lines on a family plan get unlimited messaging) launched on T-Mobile in February 2006.
Rolling Eyes We know. They are t-mobile. It doesn't matter what VZW/Sprint/ATT announces, someone will always say "T-Mobile already does this cheaper!"


The fact remains.....they are still t-mobile. So who cares?

I used to be with t-mobile but switched to cingular when I heard they're going to launch 3g, Now i have a Imate Jasjam which is quad band UMTS and triband umts and I'm happy!

When t-mobile launches their 3g i might switch back because their 900mhz ...

Will verizon ever lower data prices???

No, I know this is always a hot topic of debate...but $50 for unlimited data is insane by today's market standards, especially if it doesnt include texts.

So basically if you need unl data and a lot texts the minimum you will pay is $110 plus taxes/fees. And that will only inlclude $450 min! At cingular, based on the new bundle I think that would only cost $80.

Verizon, you stepped up with the increase in texts...now lower data rates to a more reasonable price.

Verizon will never lower their prices. I am a loyal Sprint person and My plan is by far good. I have 700 min with unlimited text, pic, video and Im and Data all for 65.00 bucks a month. Cant beat that.

didnt lauch yesterday

the plans were released on 4-20-07 to compete with verizon's unlimited plan but Verizon states that they charge airtime for picture and video messaging but its not billed its kinda weird sprint has 10$ unlimited txt only if ur on the new power vision plans its $15 for the old packs and t mob is 15 unlimited txt pic video and im
and remember, verizon's is built into a special plan, so you'll need to renew your contract to get it. ATT's is a bolt-on feature, so anyone can get it, regardless of plan!
