AT&T Lowers Monthly Cost For Unlimited Talk And Data.

If you are (or are considering to become) an AT&T customer, you might want to check out what they did to the price of their unlimited talk and data plans. While they made changes to their plans for all users, I was mostly interested in the rates on the iPhone, as that’s the phone I own. But after looking at the rate changes, they don’t really help me any because A. I don’t use that many voice minutes, B. I already have unlimited data with my $30 iPhone “extra” cost and C. texting costs are still separate from data and voice on their smartphones. So while I could now get unlimited voice for only a little more per month, I don’t need it…I NEVER go over my minutes per month. But for those of you looking to get in on the unlimited voice and data plans that Sprint and T-Mobile has had for a while now, the new rates might be worth looking into:

  • Feature Phone customers may choose unlimited talk for $69.99. Family Talk customers (prices assume two lines) may choose unlimited talk for $119.99 per month. Texting plans remain unchanged at $20 for unlimited plans for individuals and $30 for Family Talk plans.
  • All smartphone customers, including iPhone customers, may now buy unlimited voice and data for $99.99. For smartphone customers with Family Talk plans (prices assume 2 smartphones), unlimited voice and data is now available for $179.99. Texting plans remain unchanged at $20 for unlimited plans for individuals, $30 for Family Talk Plans.

Beginning today, existing AT&T customers can change to any of the new plans without penalty or contract extension with the online account management tool at www.att.com/wireless.

What I really want to see is a $99.99 unlimited voice, data, and text plan – you know, like the one Sprint has for their Blackberry users. I love my iPhone, but I am definitely not a fan of AT&T or the rates they charge. One can hope that the iPhone will soon be freed up to run on any network and I can move to a company with more affordable rates. But for now, AT&T will have to suffice as they have the iPhone.

    I did a quick check to see what it would take to change my wife and I to an unlimited plan. Total cost for unlimited voice, data and texts for two IPhones is $212. YIKES.

    I’ll stick with rollover.

  3. Darn, had me excited there for a minute but $179 for the family plan is still too salty. I’m hanging on to my Treo 680 with AT&T because at least they let me use a smartphone without the data plan. I talked to Verizon and they won’t sell you a smartphone without a data plan. At least with AT&T I can use it as I need it and avoid the $30 a month charge. Sprint’s starting to look better.
