Verizon announces World Messaging Unlimited with free unlimited texts and discounted calls

Do you send a lot of international texts, or make a ton of international calls? Verizon has a new texting plan just for you. Big Red's World Messaging Unlimited plan charges just $5 per month per line for unlimited texts sent to most countries. When calling Canada or Mexico, you are charged just 1 cent per minute. Calls to Caribbean and Central America are rung up at the price of 5 cents per minute...

I just love how T-Mobile's Uncarrier initiatives have the other national carriers so shook. They're changing & adding plans faster than sorority girls on a Saturday night. It's amazing & excellent for the industry.

Yup, T-Mobile definitely is leading the industry in that respect. As soon as they get Verizon level coverage, I'll hop right back over to T-Mobile, happy as can be.

Since most of their customers own a smartphone with a dataplan (and so does everyone around the world) then why in the world would you pay $5 for unlimited texts and not use whatsapp or viber or tango. This is a fail in my opinion!! So instead of coming up with more economical plan they find a way to charge more for these silly services.

+1 Green thumb from me unbiased123... I've been using What'sapp ever since i've returned from Germany, texting and voice mailing, and sending pictures and videos... You can't do that through a carrier for FREE. And then just $0.99 for the next year. Only a dummy would pay $5.00 a month, IMO.

Yeah,but T-mobile still sucks in the fact that they have very few high end phones!

You mean like:
Sony Xperia Z1
Galaxy Note 3
Yeah... you might honestly be what I can only consider a moron.

Rydsmith is right. You clearly haven't checked out what they have to offer recently. T-Mobile's high-end selection is on par with the other national carriers. The only area lacking is high-end WP devices, but AT&T has the upper hand in that category over everyone. In other words, you're wrong.
Also, T-Mobile has:
LG Flex (coming this month)
If you don't know, it's better to just not say anything.

Everyday T-Mobile drops and unveils something new you can hear Stevenson, McAdams and Hesse all say "DAMN!"

Hess is an idiot, Stevenson follows other, McAdam could careless it would take Steve Hess and ledger to take McAdam never the less I would love to see that happens maybe I'll regret it when it happens oh well we regret almost everything let's add one more..
