How much upsell will they get from this? Not much, according to investors, who sent all 3 stocks down in today's trading.
it is always interesting to see how quickly big companies follow each other once something innovative comes out... T-Mobile and AT&T psh
Well they got to be competative some way and its better to do something than to wait in the wings.
My wife and I asked about this last night when we were in Verizon (fixing to be a proud new owner of a Voyager!!!!) and the lady said for two lines to have unlimited everything would be right over $200!!! That is insane IMO!

You can add Sprint to the list as well. They are considering a $60 Flat Rate unlimited plan. Not that Sprint is a good carrier with their recent problems, but with added competition comes lower prices for us all from all the carriers trying to beat the other. Just give it some time as this could force AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon to lower their prices as well. :) I say "It's about time, Let the Price Wars begin!"
NEW YORK - No. 3 U.S. mobile service provider Sprint Nextel Corp is expected to offer flat-rate calling plans at up to a 40 percent discount to its rivals, hurtling the industry into a price war, analysts said on Wednesday.
The two largest U.S. mobile service providers, Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc., on Tuesday unveiled $99.99-a-month plans for unlimited calls. T-Mobile USA went a step further by including text messaging in that price.
Sprint has yet to respond, but analysts say it could be considering an unlimited calling plan for as low as $60 a month in a bid to stem customer defections.
That could force AT&T and Verizon Wireless, a venture of Verizon Communications and Vodafone Group, to cut their prices or face losing customers.
The price wars are within companies and not just the industry itself - Sprint is an example. Sprint's unlimited, contract plan is $99+ taxes and fees while Boost Mobile (on the same network) has no contract and charges $50 a month. Huge price difference on the same network...and you're thinking there should be a reason, but I've found none except for a name and contract option. As a Sprint customer, you get really tired of seeing all the better deals pass you by because of a contract. Feeling the same? Take a moment and email the President of Sprint and let Mr. Hesse know how unfair this compeition is within one company - http://sites.google.com/site/sprintcustomersunite/
