AT&T's international texting plan goes live

Darren Murph

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.
