AT&T Wireless to offer unlimited calling plan

AT&T Wireless to offer unlimited calling plan
Following the just officially announced Verizon Wireless plans for unlimited calling, AT&T followed suite and announced their own ones. The new offer is extended to all new and existing customers which for $99 get unlimited U.S calling with no domestic roaming or long distance charges. Just like the Verizon Wireless offering, that plan does not include unlimited data or SMS. For those, you have to shell out extra cash.

The new plan will be available starting Feb 22nd. Now it is a matter of time before T-mobile also announces its plans for unlimited calling.

i know good ideas have to be copied...but seriously....two providers following one great idea within the span of 2 days....obviously we know who everyone is trying to beat....verizon keeps paving the way....the rest continue to follow.

Seeing how ATT actually did the unlimited thing first on their old TDMA plans, I'm not sure how verizon is leading anything.

Shut up... do they offer an unlimited plan right now?? NO! Verizon came out with it first so you have no room to talk!

verizon sucks, that's why at/t is the largest cellphone provider! not only that but verizon phones suck! anyone who is with verizon is getting taken for a ride. i used to be with verizon but no more! too bad you can't use nokia n95, 72, 96, ...or any of the new cool samsungs with verizon. too bad!

sorry to rain on you blog battle parade, but your actually just both wrong. Sprint had the unlimited plan over a week before verizon, att, and tmobile announced theres. i dont see why your all complaining your carrier ripped off sprint, so you both can sit in shame of being wrong, sense apparently being right about your phone carrier is the most important thing in the world. and by the way, all carriers suck.

The only reason at&t is the biggest provider is they have 13 million track phone users on there network.Take those away and they are competing with sprint for# 2.

really suncom was the 1st carrier to offer unlmited then alltel followed with their version of unlimited 3yrs ago.

all because trac phone decided to use at&t network for service just shows that they know what will work because they couldv'e choose verizon or sprint for their network.

fIRST OF ALL, #5 IS AWESOME! Thank you, all carriers do suck! Secondly, having a blog battle is just idiotic and it's for nerds! by the way # 11, AT&T would not be competing with Sprint for the #2 spot because Verizon has the second largest customer base. One more thing, If you need an unlimited plan you probably need to get a life besides the life you spend talking on the phone unlimitedly!!! Bunch of dumb-asses!!!!

I rather use a tin can and a string attached than to use VZW phones...
