While we'd recommend just hoping on Skype
to chat it up with your overseas pals whenever possible, we understand the occasional jam where only a text message will do. Apparently, AT&T also sees this opportunity, and is looking to make international texting a bit easier on the wallet by introducing the International Long Distance Text Messaging Package we had received wind of
last month. The add-on package will run $9.99 per month and provides 100 messages to send out, meaning that if you fully utilize the offering you'll be looking at about $0.10 a pop. Unfortunately, picture and video messaging are still only available as pay-per-use luxuries, but we're sure an all inclusive option will pop up before too terribly long.
