AT&T is Dropping the $10/1000 Text Messaging Plan on August 21st

AT&T is dropping their $10/1000 text messages plan on August 21st and leaving the Unlimited text messaging plan as the only remaining option, reports Engadget.

This effectively means that all new customers who expect to send out a reasonable amount of text messages will need to pay an extra $10/month for that service.

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.

Many see this as response to Apple's introduction of iMessage, a new iOS 5 feature that will bypass AT&T's text message charge and send messages freely via your data plan.

I think I have the geezers plan $5 for 200 mags per month. No mention of that. Looks like i can drop that with iOS 5.

good thing I'm grandfathered into the 1000 plan. That's pure garbage forcing people to unlimited.
