AT&T is looking to steal some of that iPhone spotlight from Verizon tomorrow with plans to announce something Sprint customers have enjoyed for the last couple of years, Unlimited mobile to ANY mobile calling which gives you the ability to talk to any mobile phone number regardless of carrier without using your main bucket of minutes! Yes you read that right, starting tomorrow AT&T is planning to entice customers to stay with them and not leave for the Big Red by changing up their calling plans. Of course there are a few qualifying things to be able to get that unlimited mobile calling like; you must have the option placed on your account, be on the unlimited messaging plan and be on a “qualifying” Nation or Family Talk plan. On top of your base plan the unlimited messaging plan will run $20 for single line plans and $30 for the family plans!
Anyone thinking twice now about getting that new Verizon iPhone tomorrow and sticking it out with AT&T for the free Mobile to any mobile calling? Still going to be up early tomorrow to get the Verizon iPhone? Drop us a comment below and let us know!
Following a trend started by Sprint back in 2009, AT&T has just announced that it’ll start offering its customers unlimited calling to any mobile number in the US, regardless of carrier, starting tomorrow (currently, only AT&T numbers qualify). There are a few catches, of course: you’ve got to sign up, you need to be on the company’s unlimited messaging plan, and you need to on a “qualifying” Nation or FamilyTalk plan. Unlimited messaging runs $20 for individuals and $30 on family plans, so the perk isn’t exactly free — but for many, it should take a big load off the minute bucket. Follow the break for the full press release.
