AT&T Go Phone hiking text messaging to 20 cents

AT&T is discontinuing their $20 unlimited MEdiaNet option for Pay As You Go plans. This was a huge draw, since it was the best prepaid data option on the market. Word is that Pick Your Plan subscribers will still have the option, though Cell Guru claims that Pick Your Plan users will lose the $20 text and data bundles. I’ve yet to see corroboration for that, so take it with a grain of salt. The worst news, though comes from Howard Forum, where a user shares that AT&T is upping per-use text messaging to 20 cents each. In other words, it’s time to shut off text messaging if you don’t have a bundle.]]>

    Wow! That is expensive. With my Tracfone, I pay 10 cents per minute, and it costs .3 units to sent and receive a message, so it only costs 6 cents for an exchange!
