Starting August 21, AT&T will be slimming down and removing its limited text messaging package — ten bucks for one thousand texts — leaving the twenty dollar Messaging Unlimited plan as the sole survivor. AT&T users will have no other choice regarding text messages when the change takes hold, other than a pay-per-text and pay-per-picture-or-video plan, which will cost twenty and thirty cents per messages, respectively. The Family Unlimited Messaging plan remains unscathed.
An AT&T representative confirmed to Engadget that current AT&T customers can keep their texting plans, even if they switch phones. Though the removal of the limited texting plan may seem inconsequential at first, there are likely to be a large amount of annoyed customers, since all AT&T is really doing is forcing customers to pay ten more dollars for text messages than said customers may have wanted.
