AT&T will soon offer smartphone plan with unlimited messaging baked in
A leaked photo of an AT&T pricing brochure shows that the carrier plans on offering a "Talk, Text, Web & E-mail" plan that includes unlimited MMS and SMS. Pricing for both is an extra $20 over the smartphone only rate, which is about the same you would pay if unlimited messaging was not part of the entire package. The lower priced SMS and MMS plans will be still available at a price of $5 for 200 messages or $15 for $1500 messages. Overall, there really does not seem to be any price advantage for AT&T customers to wrap up their smartphone cost and messaging options into one single plan. The carrier appears ready to offer this new plan as soon as today and while obviously not announced yet by AT&T, it is expected that new iPhone buyers will get the option of signing up for this new plan. As for those considering a family plan, it appears that there are really no changes here, either.

ok, PHONEARENA, this is not something new by AT&T - let us breakdown the 114.99 plan for a single line: 69.99 unlimited voice 20.00 unlimited messaging 25.00 - 2GB data add it up and you get 114.99. AND, when you get the bill it is still billed as I have broken it down - AT&T just shows it here to sort of simply things....again, not news...SLOW DAY, huh?? This is the same deal I could get on my line, if I choose....this is not news....NEXT!!!

Folks, before the new unlimited data plans were around you would have paid 69.99+30.00+30.00 for unl everything, so this newest brochure, now around 7 weeks old is the same info with the exception being 25.00 for data 2GB, not 30.00 unl data. Sprint guy, no, no one with AT&T is that stupid, but if you want decent country in the U.S> you have to have AT&T and VERIZON and their costs are about the same, but they are the biggest networks. SPRINT does have 4G in my area, and an EVO 4G would have been an awesome phone, but I will take my captivate and its 55 FPS processor, thanks...
