New AT&T customers will soon find themselves unable to take part in the carrier’s $10 a month for 1000 text messaging plan. Starting on August 21, that plan will be going away. Those who already use this rate plan will see it grandfathered when the big day comes.
Instead of settling for 1000 messages, AT&T will suggest customers subscribe to its unlimited text messaging plan for $20 a month. This plan is good for basic phones, messaging phones and smartphones.
The other alternative is paying for messages individually. It’s $0.20 for every regular text message sent or $.30 for a text or video message.
