AT&T begins offering unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling

As the Verizon iPhone starts reaching the hands of end users, AT&T continues to add incentives to its service to try to keep end users. In this case, effective today, which coincidentally is when the Verizon iPhone reaches retail stores, AT&T customers will have unlimited calling to any U.S. mobile number.

Similar to Sprint's service, this is to any carrier.  Topping Sprint's service, however, AT&T still has their A-List which allows a certain number of "favorites" to which unlimited calling is allowed, even to wired lines.  Of course, there are caveats. To get the free mobile-to-mobile calling, you have to subscribe to unlimited text messaging. Unlimited messaging costs $20 per month on an individual plan or $30 per month on a FamilyTalk Plan, which allows for up to five lines.


It's an incentive, and it's a nice plus for those staying with AT&T. It's probably not going to be as big a splash as the Verizon iPhone hitting stores, however.  It's also not going to affect the lines that are already greeting Verizon and other retailer storefronts in parts of the country.

Sounds like there pulling something out of Sprint's strategy book here. I wonder if they will get sued like everyone else who tries to do something extra these day's. I could see it now Sprint serves At&t with court summons for stealing one of there advertised feature's.

It isn't really the same thing rapid1. You have to pay to get this feature from AT&T (their just packaging it with their unlimited texting plans). It is included from Sprint. ie, one is an upgrade (AT&T), one is a standard feature (Sprint).

If you actually get this, I would strongly suggest dropping your number of anytime minutes down as low as possible. I know with Sprint I use far less than 50 a month since the only landlines I can that are not during the evening or on a weekend are to a store or a quick call to the office.
