AT&T Adds Canada to Nation and Family Talk Plans
Today AT&T rolled out two new variations on its Nation and Family Talk plans. The two eliminate long-distance charges to Canada; provides 1,000 anytime and night minutes; and includes Rollover for unused anytime minutes. Nation with Canada plans start at $60 per month and FamilyTalk with Canada plans start at $90 per month for two lines of service. Per-use data is still charged at $2 per megabyte.
Yet SMS/MMS is *still* not included!

AT&T Viva Mexico ("Mexico Plan") & AT&T Nation/FamilyTalkSM with Canada ("Canada Plan"): Certain eligibility requirements apply. Anytime Minutes and Night and Weekend Minutes between Mexico and your U.S. wireless coverage area if you subscribe to the Mexico Plan, or Canada and your U.S. wireless coverage area if you subscribe to the Canada Plan, will be treated for billing purposes as calls to and from your U.S. wireless coverage area. Calls made from or received in Mexico and Canada cannot exceed your monthly off-net usage allowance (the lesser of 750 min./mo. or 40% of your Anytime Minutes/mo.) in any two consecutive months.

Data roaming is criminal
This isn't exactly AT&T's fault, but I want to know why other carriers seem to value these zeroes-and-ones so much- have they not figured out how to delivers data on the cheap?
