With Sprint, ATT,Verizon set to offer $99 unlimited calling plans things seem to be looking on the up and up. Personally I don’t spend more than 300 minutes on the phone a month but I know others that spend 100 times as much. I guess T-mobile will have to follow suit with their own $99 calling plan.
AT&T has added a twist to their unlimited calling plan by banning smartphones from plan. I guess they just want to screw with power users.
The thing that I find ridiculous is that SMS messages still cost $.20 or $.15 per message. You can have an unlimited data plan sending hundreds of megabytes but you have to pay a dime to send 2Kb of text. This gets even more ridiculous when you consider the fact that a phone call is streaming 30 times more data every second. Just another ironic part about the phone industry.
How much time do you think it will take for Verizon and AT&T to come out with an announcement that “Unlimited” really means limited.
