AT&T Text messaging plan needs more options.

AT&T Text messaging plan needs more options.

[ Edited ]

I see unlimited for $20.

 

How about 200 for $5?   What happened to that option?

ATT got rid of $5 for 200 messages around March this year and the other options sometime this summer. If they had a business reason for it, I don't know or even understand it.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

Re: AT&T Text messaging plan needs more options.

The gameplan is obvious.  They will make more money charging .20 cents per message than their $5 for 200 plan.

 

People will rather pay .20 per use than $20 for unlimited.

 

And in the long run, they will end up paying lets say $10-15  per month use.  More than the $5 AT&T use to make.

Corporate greed. Thats the only reason, despite what wording they use to spin it.

As already stated by Ann154, AT&T ditched the $5 200 messages plan earlier this year.

I personally think that they should re-instate the plan. I think this would make text messaging seem more attractive to a not-so-frequent user.

HEY -- AT&T. You want to know why the Justice Department is suing you and why your T-mobile purchase will either be denied or be accompanied by onerous restrictions/concessions?? Yah - it's {word filter evasion} like this.

Im considering dropping text altogether since my usage has cut way back. I wish they had at least the $10 plan available. Offering just unlimited stinks.

Re: AT&T Text messaging plan needs more options.

I upgraded my phone a couple of weeks ago and the salesman at the AT&T store told me that they didn't have the $5 plan any more even though I've had it for over 2 years.  He told me I had to either get the unlimited messages plan or be charged $.20 per message.  I told him it's a pain when you get texts from people you don't want and I think he took that to mean I wanted him to shut down all texts to my phone.  So not only did I get to keep my $5 plan, but he shut off all texts to my phone.  I didn't realize it until I was waiting for a text about an appointment time and never got it.  I had to go into another AT&T store near where I work to find out what happened.  She said the guy at the other AT&T store must've shut off my texts AND was incorrect about the $5 plan, that I should have been grandfathered in.  I called customer service and the lady with a thick accent told me she didn't have the $5 plan ANYWHERE in their system and it was not possible to get it.

 

NOT HAPPY AT&T.  Smiley Sad
