Hey iPhone fans, looks like what we projected would happen, did happen. AT&T is making changes to their pricing in order to compete with Verizon.
Today, an internal AT&T memo was leaked on changes to their texting plans.
AT&T started with their texting plans. They have brought out pricing that totally kills Verizon’s texting plans. Instead of AT&T’s old $5 for 200 texts or $15 for 1500 texts, you can now get 1,000 text messages for just $10 a month, and $20 gets you unlimited texting!
This is just a pre-emtive strike against Verizon. Us here at LEI Mobile are hoping that AT&T drops the price and the data caps on their data plans.
Honestly, as much as I hate AT&T, if they had unlimited data (period.) I would go with them. I love GSM and 3G, but AT&T dropping unlimited data and also raising their prices worried me. I am very hopeful that once Verizon announces their unlimited data plans, that we will all see some better prices on AT&T’s network.
More to come…
The 30 for families is still the same…. wheres 20 for families at lol our bill is 189 for 3 phones, 700mins, unlimited texting, and two iphones on 2GB 🙁

AT&T is targeting single users. Holy crap man. That’s terrible. I thought $110 a month for 3 lines was a lot…
I’m paying $151 a month for 2 iPhone lines. 1400 minutes, unlimited text n unlimited data on both. Not bad

Well, I pay $40 a year on my sidekick plan, but when I go to Verizon, I’m going to pay $110 for 3 lines. 700 min & unlimited data. I use Google Voice for texting. I would never pay for texting, texting is such a scam.
Lol you suck! I want unlimited data!! For more than my iPad 3GS |:-P
AT&T needs to get rid of those stupid limited data plans. I don’t know why they did that. Did they think the other companies would do the same?
I think they should make there plans identical to the last penny to see which carrier people like more. Also make joint commercials taking shots at TMobile.
T-Mobile is just jealous that they didn’t get the Apple account. They should have hired Don Draper.
Yeah I would like to see both data plans, I have t-mobile on my iPhone, I rarely use the Internet out of my house, so at home I used to use Wi-Fi , but if AT&T drops the data plans I will go with them

Well I used H20 which is on AT&T network for 50$ a month unlimited text and talk and 50mb data. On simple mobile which it on T-mobile network for the same price you get 100mb of data. I switched to simple mobile and for 60$ I get unlimited talk, text, and data. This is all in the USA.
Even though you sign a 2 year contract with AT&T for the iPhone, I’ve always been able to upgrade my phone after only a year whenever a new iPhone would come out. AT&T really hooked us up with that… I wonder if Verizon will allow you to break contract and get a new iPhone for a cheaper price after only a year.. Or will they make you wait until your 2 year is up. Just was thinking about it.
Actually both AT&T and verizon got rid of there discount Programs… There all just a bunch of greedy bastards…
Is anyone selling there sidekick sim? I really need one.
Alan Vazquez says
We have rumors that T-Mobile is getting ready to re-introduce the sidekick phone, so we may see the plans return. Stay tuned…
