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 the Caribbean and Central America are rung up at the price of 5 cents per minute.

Verizon is offering those who sign up for the the World Messaging Unlimited plan a $15 savings, by making the first three months free. Keep in mind that Verizon is characterizing this as a limited time offer, so don't start making a long 200 page list of pros and cons. If you make international texts and call often to Mexico, Canada, Central America and the Caribbean, this would seem like a no brainer.

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: Galaxy S4 Sony Xperia Z1 iPhone 5S/C 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: HTC One Motorola X LG G2 LG Flex (coming this month) If you don't know, it's better to just not say anything.
