AT&T Scrapping Texting Plan

Beginning on Sunday the 21st, AT&T will be dropping its 1000 text for $10 buck plan and replacing it with an unlimited for $20. If you were contemplating buying into the old plan, you better hurry since it will be ending tonight. The old plan will be grandfathered in, so existing accounts can opt for either plan as part of the original contract agreement.

Siegler points out that text messages are easy money for carriers آ– "a revenue stream of billions of dollars for carriers, with profit margins approaching 100 percent for each message."
