    I have the original iPhone set up as pre-paid. I just got 2 texts from AT&T saying :

    AT&T Free Msg: Text/IM rate will increase on 11/12/08 to $.20 per message sent/received. Save with messaging pkg rates as low as $.01/msg.

    AT&T Free Msg: Unlimited MEdiaNet packages will no longer be available as of 11/12/2008. 1, 5 and 10MB MEdiaNet packages still available.

    My question is - is this just a general message for all pre-paid phones or just the iPhone?

    That's across all of the GoPhone plans. It was announced quite a while ago. I personally went through and stocked up on the unlimited MediaNet packages through the end of next year.

    AT&T should took these kind of action loooong time ago!

    I feel ripped off when others use data $10 cheaper and cheap plans.

    Now they at least increased text rate and stopped unlimited data, I feel

    little better. I know this sounds selfish but whatever.

    I heard that extending unlimited medianet plan would get canceld and money

    to be refunded.:eek:
