Yesterday we mentioned AT&T's plan to charge users for FaceTime once iOS 6 is released. Since we told you how they are planning on charging you more, it's only fair that today we tell you about their plan to save you a little money. (Well, it might save you money.)
AT&T will soon be offering "Mobile Share" plans, which will closely resemble Verizon's "Share Everything" plans. Unlike Verizon, which replaced most of its existing plans with the new "Share Everything" plans, AT&T will be keeping their traditional plans.
Meaning, if you don't want to move to a "Mobile Share" plan, you don't have to!
So what will a "Mobile Share" plan entail? Well, all connected phones (up to 10 per plan) will receive unlimited calling and texting. But all devices will share a monthly allotment of data (a certain number of gigabytes).
These new plans could save you money, especially if one particular person in your family is always going over their data limit while the rest of the family comes in way under. The plan will cost you a monthly fee per smart phone. Prices range from $45 to $30 base price per smartphone, and $40 to $200 for monthly data plans. (Plans range from 1 to 20 GB's of data.)
However, if you are an AT&T customer with the old unlimited data plan, I highly suggest you hold onto it while you can! AT&T has no plans of making you switch to their new plans...yet.
