    I think this is a bit outrageous!!! My current 200 texts per month is not lasting so I inquired about unlimited texting and this is what I saw on their website. Does anyone know if they offer perhaps an additonal 200 texts or something for $5?

    For normal iPhone accounts, the SMS plans are:

    $05 - 200
    $15 - 1500
    $20 - Unlimited

    Not sure why you'd see $40.

    who the hell would pay 20cents (USD) for a SMS for pay-per-use?

    even in singapore, it's only 5 cents (SGD)! :confused:

    I see the EXACT same image when I log in, except it says $20.

    Did you tick off AT&T? Kill their dog? Date and dump their daughter?

    They must hate you for some reason.

    That image shows a first gen iPhone, meaning, it costs $20 for the iPhone plan and $20 for unlimited texting, for a total of $40.

    That makes sense, but isn't it strange that I don't see $50 when I log into my 3G account?

    Oh well, who really expects consitancy from large companies?

    Yeah, that's far too high. I'm on a FamilyTalk plan and I split the price of unlimited texting with my sister--$15 each.

    $20 per month is a lot. I got unlimited texts for a 1 time fee of $5.99 and boy do I use the hell out of it.

    I'll fill you in but make sure to spread the love to another geek in need.

    You a student? There are codes you can apply to your fan account that'll give you free texts

    I'm still using my Unlimited M2M texting for $5, although they don't offer this anymore, which doesn't help you any.

    So you pay 20 cents to people who aren't on ATT?

    Why text? Use e-mail instead. You can still send SMS messages to your friends (and they can send replies back), only you won't have to pay AT&T for the privilege.

    Couple that with push e-mail and you've got yourself a perfect replacement.
