Recent changes to plans (for the worse)

So, I've used VM for years for my kids and it used to be that I would top up their phone with $10 and out of that $10, I would buy $5.00 messaging package that brought the cost of messages to .05. Now VM has done away with that nicety. They've replaced with a whole bunch of expensive monthly contracts instead when my 10 year old really just needs a few messages per month. Sad

Looks like I'm moving to AT&T which still has the monthly $5.00 for 200 messages packages.

Just be aware that VM is no longer a value choice for pay as you go customers.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year to all!

Sorry, looks like they've buried the option but it's still there. You have to now log in to your account and go to Messages to see the option to buy messaging packages...sigh. sorry.
