Text messages shouldn't cost near as much, even $20/month for unlimited is a rip off. Text messages are tiny in size but hey they're popular so why not jack up the prices?

I've always wondered why I have to pay for text messaging if I also have to pay for a data plan. Isn't that paying twice for the same thing?

ATT is one of the worst companies I know of, they have been trying to get us to upgrade our internet with different tactics that I'm sure not all of are legal. They block certain applications (games) stating that we are not paying enough to game online. They frequently shut off the connection, or make it unstable. Switching to openDNS or using a non ATT modem results in the connection being terminated until put back how they want it. They cut us off from their customer service stating our internet plan does not include service, and they have sent multiple agents to our house in the middle of the night to get us to upgrade.
Good news for fellow ATT haters though, doesn't look like the merger is going through.

Meh. Grand fathered plan ftw.
This doesn't effect me one bit.

This article just blows things out of proportion. Texts have been "overpriced" for a lot of companies for a while.
