Mobile to Any Mobile - To Good To Be True?

So I have a dumb question, I added the Family Messaging Unlimited with Mobile to Any Mobile Calling feature to my plan, after chatting with a rep.  She basically confirmed that the Unlimited M2M is truly for cell phone to cell phone to any network within the US.  I even looked it up in the answer center.  Then my Brother-In-Law calls and just doesn't believe that it could be.  So can someone set me straight, does that feature really include true mobile to mobile calling to any network within the US?

 

Thanks guys!

No it is not completely true. We have had a family plan with unlimited texts for years. They say as long as your family plan is at least 700 minutes you qualify. Our plan is 850 minutes and I was told I would have to change plans. They want me to pay $10 a month more for 150 minutes less. And from what I hear we would also lose about 3000 roll over minutes. Now please tell me where that is free?

Like most other new features and promotions, you have to be on a plan that is current. Your 850 minute plan is grandfathered and hasn't been offered in several years. The price you are paying now would actually be approximately the same if you went to the 700. It's up to you if you want to exchange 150 anytime minutes with the ability to make/receive calls to any cell phone nationwide for free. :smileyvery-happy:

If I' m correct the 850 minutes family plan has the same cost as the 700 minutes one so there would be no price increase. Still, it's a great benefit to have unlimited calling to any wireless phone from any company. Believe me when I tell you that your airtime minutes usage will reduce considerably if you add the Mobile to Any Mobile feature, I've seen family plans where their usage reduced from more than 1000 minutes to less than 300 minutes per month with that feature.

If that is the case that your minutes will go down why do you have to have a 700 minute or higher plan? Even if it was on the 550 minute rate plan because I have 3 iPhones on my account I would still be paying well over a $100 a month. It should be based off a certain $ amount not minutes. Like if you already spend more then $100 a month you should be able to get it no matter what minute plan.

Unfortunately...that's not the case. You hav to be on the 700min plan or higher.

I love the anymobile since 90% of the calls I make are to cellphones. The anytime minutes along with rollover more than cover the 10% calls I make to landline. I literally dont have to watch my minites or texting for that matter.

 

Its an excellent feature to me. The only thing I have to keep an eye on is data but thats no problem.

I am a tenured CSR. Lets say that we did base it off how much you paid every month lets say you have and old expired plan that included 200 min a month. But you continuesly went over your min causing high bills every month. Should we base it off what you pay every month then? Lets say you are an international traveler and have a lot of roaming and have a high bill every month. Should we still base it off what you pay every month? The cap on the min at 700 min is a good idea because it gives you 700 min just for landlines for business landlines and home phone lines.

I already have the 700 with $30 family unlimited texting.

Do I need to do anything to sign up?
I don't see it as a option on the Features Add page.

Well Mr. Tenured CSR if you have a plan that includes roll over minuets and you have several built up but in order to cut costs you change to a lower minuet plan that also includes roll over minuets why do you lose most of the ones you had built up? Just another way AT&T has come up with to screw you over? I could see if you went to a plan that didn't include roll over but really!!

Most of these new plans are to entice new customers who never knew what our original packets and plans were over the last couple years. To the new customers, i guess it may seem a deal.

I have the 700 minute family plan, with $30 unlimited mess., unlimited mobile to mobile, unlimited nights and w/e. I was reviewing my bill and noticed that some mobile to mobile calls took away from my minutes. It seemed like it was calls with people who have Verizon. Anyone noticed the same? I haven't contacted at&t yet.

I have the 700 minute Family Plan with 3 phones, $30 Family Messaging Plan and 2/ $10 Unlimited Data Plans BUT because we get a 24% discount, which lowers the cost of our plan, we are not eligible for the Mobile to Any Mobile minutes. So, in my case, I would have to go to a higher rate plan or give up the 24% discount in order to get this. I suppose we'll keep the discount..we never use all of our minutes anyway.

If you only have free Mobile to Mobile, that means free Mobile to Mobile between any ATT mobile user..not Verizon. Free  Mobile to ANY Mobile is totally different. Yes, you will see your minutes being used if you called a Verizon mobile number.
