AT&T revamps unlimited voice/data plans
Hot on the heals of Verizon's recent rate changes, AT&T has announced matching rate changes. Effective Jan. 18, smartphone users can enjoy a new $99.99 unlimited voice and data plan. The new plan doesn't include texting, which will still cost an additional $20 a month for unlimited SMS.
A Family Unlimited Talk plan will also be available for $179.99 (for the first two phones) per month with unlimited voice and data. The cost of additional phones was not mentioned and we can only assume it will stay at $9.99 per line. Adding unlimited texting will run you $30 per month on the Family plan.
AT&T will also offer unlimited talk plans for Feature Phones ($69.99 individual/$119.99 family) and Quick Messaging Devices ($89.99 individual/$149.99 family). As with smartphones, texting plans will run $20 for unlimited individual plans and $30 for unlimited family plans.
They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Somehow, I don't see Luke Wilson spinning it that way in the commercials that are sure to follow this announcement.

Both visits, I had to use a PAY PHONE because I couldn't get a damn call out on AT&T! CES of all places!
I wasn't the only one. Everyone was complaining. And the calls that did go thru had awful reception, and I couldn't hear a thing, and half of them got cut off in the middle.
3G, EDGE, GPRS, it didn't matter, they barely worked.
It always showed a decent signla (lot of bars), but it was useless.
I met an AT&T employee at CES, and he told me he was embarassed to work for AT&T as bad as their service is in Las Vegas, and expecially at CES of all places.
The day that Verizon begins using GSM, I will say good bye to AT&T forever!
AT&T said it would lower its own prices for unlimited plans for all devices, including the iPhone....
