First, the good news: Verizon's just made its $20 texting plan a little sweeter. Now, the bad: it's still not unlimited -- and, oh yeah, you can count on paying $0.15 per
if you go over. The word is rolling in that Big Red has upped out-of-network texts from 2,500 to 5,000 on its most expensive dedicated messaging package -- and although that's still technically not the unlimited plan some customers had been hoping for, personally, we know that our
thumbs would be smarting something fierce after 5,000 texts in a single month -- but that's just us. For what it's worth, your hard-earned $20 will still buy you unlimited in-network texting, so get those hands on a workout regimen post haste.
The text plans are still serving up overage at $0.10 per. Sorry for the confusion! [Thanks to everyone who sent this in]
