AT&T Text Messaging Plans

AT&T Updates Messaging and Upgrade Plans

AT&T changed its data plans last year, and starting on Jan. 23, the company will be initiating updates to its messaging and upgrade plans as well. While it may not be good news for current customers, there is a slight light at the end of the tunnel for those iPhone customers hoping to upgrade with a discount. Check it out below!

Text Messaging
Text messaging plans now consist of Messaging Unlimited ($20 a month/$30 for families), and a new Messaging 1,000 plan (1,000 texts for $10 with $0.10 for each additional text over 1,000. The previous Messaging 200 (200 messages for $5 a month) will be discontinued. Good news is, current customers can stick with their new plans, but the old plans won't be available when you upgrade or sign a new contract.

Find out about the early upgrade and family plan changes after the break.

Early Upgrades
If you're looking forward to an early upgrade on your iPhone (as was offered in previous years), there's a big change coming: early upgrade pricing for iPhone users (standard subsidized price plus $200) will only be available for six months after an existing iPhone contract. So in theory, iPhone 4 owners who activated their devices last year won't be eligible for an early upgrade.

Upgrade Discounts
AT&T's $50 and $100 upgrade discount program will be cancelled as of Jan. 23, of this year. However, if you're an iPhone user, your $50 or $100 discount will still be available to use through July 23.

Family Plan Add-Ons
Family plan add-ons will increase from $10 to $36.
