    I did a search but couldn't find an answer to this. I recently received my first iPhone bill and had an overage charge on texting. The only person I text really is my g/f. We both share a family plan, and I was under the impression that we had free m2m. So i was checking my usage this month and I'm already over on my Texting, so I called and AT&T told me that the iPhone doesn't have m2m unlimited texting. The next upgrade was for $15 to 1500 texts. My overages only totaly about $5, but how come no m2m texting, but m2m unlimited minutes for the iPhone? Or no upgrade option less than $15?

    AT&T likes to make money. That's why they limit SMS.

    I recently went over on the 200 that come with the basic plan so I upgraded to 1500 per month.

    But the AT&T rep on the phone quoted me an additional $10 not $15.

    Yes...it should only be an extra $10 per month, not $15.

    Unlimited m2m texting is $5 per month.

    You can call *DATA# to see how many txts you have left.

    Supposedly you can't have unlimited m2m texting with the iPhone.

    Indeed you can. Not available through iTunes activation, call and add it later. It shows up as a 25$ iPhone data + m2m txt package -- they drop the regular data and add that. The usual 5$ plan code the reps use won't work.

    I've had it on my lines for two billing cycles. It definately exists and bills correctly.

    The AT&T person I spoke with said there was no such plan. This is good news. I hope I can find someone who is familiar with this, and will possibly see about getting a credit,doubtful but worth a shot. You wouldn't happen to know the code for that package?
