AT&T Alters Pricing In Wake of Verizon Announcement
Today AT&T made some changes in its wireless voice, texting and data plans to better compete with the changes made by Verizon Wireless this morning. Similar to Verizon Wireless, the new plans will be available starting Monday, January 18. AT&T's feature phone customers can choose unlimited talk plans for $70 (individuals) and $120 (Family Talk - two lines). Unlimited texting still costs $20 additional for individuals and $30 more for families. AT&T's messaging phones (those with QWERTY keyboards) can purchase unlimited talk for $90 (individual) and $150 (Family Talk - two lines). These plans include the $20/$30 texting fees. AT&T's smartphone customers can choose an unlimited voice and data plan for $100 (individual) and $180 (Family Talk - assuming two smartphones). Unlimited texting for smartphones still costs $20 additional for individuals and $30 more for families.

Maybe it's the same old simple answer: greed!
Fellow phone scoopers, remember when responding, I DON'T work in the wireless industry, I'm not brainwashed by a corporation, I am a CONSUMER.
And by the way $120 frinkin dollars for unlimited voice on 2-lines, that like what $50 MORE than what Tmo charges for the same exact thing?
Once Tmo gets a similar device to the Nexus One with a slideout keyboard I am very...
Since you are just a consumer and not brainwashed like the rest of us...let me explain this to you. ...

Much cheaper Unlimited Talk and Text on Prepaid
I agree with you. $60 for Unlimited Talk and Text is pretty damn good for AT&T. No data plan REQUIRED is good for people who just need the basics, but need more coverage then say Me...
Plans are still non-competitive
ATT doesn't need to compete with them on price until they are competing for the same customers
Youv'e got to be kidding me !
prepaid customer service is also nowhere near what it is with contract providers.
I missed this the first time I read it..
Granted, this makes a lot more sense than Data on an 8360, I was just wondering if an ATT rep or someone else could clarify this for me?
Essentially, "why buy a phone with a full keyboard and not text? Most people wouldn't own one unless they actually used text ...
Get off verizons nuts
If you new how major corparation like these worked you would now that things like this do not get done in four hours.
Both of these companies have had these plans in the works for months.

Anything you can do, I can do...
Hopefully this means that people will start competing again instead of just saying (we have cooler phones, come here)
ATT is still giving you a choice
Choose one or the other is better than what verizon is doing? Is that how you all read it? Plus no cap on dumbphone data.
