    AT&T Dropping All Text Messaging Plans Except their $20 Dollar/Month Unlimited Plan


    As you can see in the pic above, AT&T has decided to do away with all of their different tiers of SMS Text messaging plans except for one. They will only keep the $20 dollar unlimited plan from now on. This has been confirmed by an AT&T representative and here is the quote,
    "We regularly evaluate our offers and are making some adjustments to our messaging lineup.

    Starting August 21, we're streamlining our text messaging plans for new customers and will offer an unlimited plan for individuals for $20 per month and an unlimited plan for families of up to five lines for $30 per month. The vast majority of our messaging customers prefer unlimited plans and with text messaging growth stronger than ever, that number continues to climb among new customers. Existing customers don't have to change any messaging plan they have today, even when changing handsets."
    I guess for the few users in the world that rarely text message this is bad news, but my guess is that the vast majority of folks out there won't even notice this. What do you guys think?

    It's a good thing that my $10.00 messaging plan (1,000 messages) will be grandfathered in because I rarely even use 200 messages a month but paying for each individual message would be too much $$ and who knows, my messages may increase a bit but I don't think I'll ever get up to 1,000 let alone unlimited.

    Well, we know what makes money. Texting is free for them to provide and they demand $20/month for it. Meanwhile they canned the unlimited data in favor of one tier and wallet-reaming. Funny? Not really.
