AT&T Adds Unlimited International Messaging to Mobile Share Plans

attlogo.pngAT&T today announced plans to add unlimited international messaging to all of its Mobile Share and Mobile Share Value plans, allowing customers in the United States to send international messages as part of their existing plans, with no additional cost. Text, picture, and video messages are all included.
On Friday, February 28, all AT&T Mobile Share and Mobile Share Value plans will now include unlimited international messaging from the U.S. to the world. AT&T consumer and business Mobile Share customers can send unlimited text, picture and video messages. Current Mobile Share and Mobile Share Value customers will automatically benefit from this offer.
AT&T is also deploying a new World Connect Value international calling package, which offers one cent per minute calls from the United States to more than 35 countries including Canada, Mexico, and several other locations in Latin America and the Caribbean. The add-on, which is available to all AT&T wireless postpaid customers, costs $5 per month.

AT&T's new unlimited international messaging follows Verizon's recent introduction of new More Everything plans that also include unlimited international messaging.

Both the World Connect Value plan and the unlimited international messaging will be available beginning on Friday, February 28.

They really need to get rid of extra charges for texts and calls between the US and Canada.

I mean, why should it cost extra to call our hat???

People already have unlimited international messaging from whatsapp and other apps like it, but you know this and because of this you did it.

In Europe for this pricing you get unlimited calls and messaging worldwide.


...not impressed with this offer:rolleyes:

From http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=25276 :

World Connect Value ... offers low rate calling from the U.S. to over 225 countries

Interesting...

from http://www.worldatlas.com/nations.htm

Many sources offer different answers, and depending on the source, there are 189, 191, 192, 193, 194, 195 or 196 independent countries in the world today

AT&T know something the rest of us don't...?

Well, although the move may be late and merely a reaction to increased competition, I for one won't complain about getting more.

As for WhatsApp, while it may be undoutably very popular, SMS still continues to be a dominant messaging platform, however regrettable.

It's funny how AT&T finally does something right, which also happens to be one of the things people constantly criticize AT&T for, and some of you STILL have the audacity to complain! People are never happy no matter how hard you try to please them. I hate our society. It's all about more for less nowadays.

meaning, the only reason I would use the app was to txt for free internationally but now most carriers in the US includes this service? Why should I keep the app??

In that sense for your situation perhaps that might be the case. Although what about the people that you text, would it perhaps cost them to receive and/or send regular texts to you and thus might still be better to use something like WhatsApp?
