that is just excuses. People are tired of excuses. Cell phone rates are too high not and people should be offered better plans  and not taken advantage off.

If Sprint had the towers they would be in the lead with their plans right now.

I'm sure sprint would. I'm sure that <insert any random carrier> will take the lead because they have <insert any random cool feature>.

 

Until then, that's the way it is. Go to sprint and take advantage of their awesome deals and okay coverage.

AT&T used to have mobile to mobile messaging. It wasnt popular, nor profitable so they canned it.

My current Verizon plan has mobile to mobile texting included.  I wonder if that will still be the case when I'm transitioned to AT&T?

Its a small possibility you might get it. I know the biling system still marks "M2M" messages. But, even if you did get it, it wouldnt be free to your old Verizon people.

 

I doubt they will give it though.

Your plan and features will stay the same, unless you upgrade to a new phone, at which point you will be required to accept a new contract, AND AT&T plans and features.

I might be mistaken, but I don't think AT&T has to honor Verizon's plans and features. Switching to AT&T will require you to choose a new phone (unless you're signing up with an AT&T branded, or unlocked compatible phone, a Verizon phone is not compatible) and a new plan and new features.

 

You will not get to keep the mobile to mobile texting that Verizon has offered you.

juicy, belome is undergoing a forced market migration from Verizon.

 

Its a issue from another thread, he is being forced by the FCC to switch. Its a separate issue, and that's why the circumstances are different. Smiley Happy

My old Verizon messaging plan (July '09) didn't include mobile-to-mobile messaging...

AT&T no longer offer the M2M messaging... that was back when data plans and messaging were combined and it was removed about 1 year ago. only rates for sms text are 200 1500 and unlimited.

That's right, but as UNSC_REACH stated, "belome is undergoing a forced market migration from Verizon.

 

 Its a issue from another thread, he is being forced by the FCC to switch. Its a separate issue, and that's why the circumstances are different."

Thats exactly right. AT&T will honor the migrated customer's old plan, until the customer wants to change anything, then its change everything or nothing, for lack of a better explaination.

The sad part is that almost all of my calling and texts are to other Verizon customers.  So even if I get free calling and texting to AT&T customers its is still a change in my plan.  [and doesn't do me a lot of good since I hardly know anyone with AT&T.]  It would be really cool if I could keep calling and texting my Verizon friends for free, but I know thats not gonna happen.
