AT&T Outs Global Messaging 200 And 500 Texting Plans For Globe Trotters.

  • September 20, 2011 1:51 pm

Globe trotters who want to admit to calling AT&T the carrier of choice — Alright, we’ll admit it too… — looking to phone home via SMS can now do so a bit more affordably. AT&T just launched two new global messaging plans
allotment and pricing:

  • Global Messaging 200: 200 messages for $30/month
  • Global Messaging 500: 500 messages for $50/month

Even if you factor in the 100+ countries covered under said plans as well as the backend deals that must be made to allow messages across networks and physical boundaries, the pricing is ridiculous considering the meager amount of messages you’re allowed. Your best bet is to unlock your phone and swap in a local pre-paid SIM card as needed. But if you’re in a pinch even the above plans are better than pay-per-use rates of $0.50 and $1.30 for each text/picture message.
