I was in Chicago last week, and noticed a sign in an AT&T store window advertising $70 unlimited talk and text plan. Having been on their previously-really-pricey unlimited deal for a a couple of years, I was very pleased to learn that the new pricing is extended to iPhone users.
We still have to pay the thieving bastards an additional $20 for unlimited text messaging, and as always, $30/month for data. So that’s $120 + tax for everything, while Sprint still does unlimited everything for $100/month. Perhaps this was a reaction to Verizon’s price cut, or perhaps Apple nudged their mobile partner to adopt the new pricing to encourage people to roll a 3G subscription for their iPad into their budget. Either way it does help a bit. That texting price, however, makes no freakin’ sense.
