AT&T tweaks text messaging plans for the better

Here's one upside to Verizon getting the iPhone: AT&T now has to, you know, compete with another carrier for your love. The first step? Changing up the text messaging plans for the better.

There are two new text messaging plans that replace the old ones: 1000 texts per month for $10, or unlimited texts for $20. This is compared to the old 1,500 texts for $15 or 200 texts for $5 level. It's good news for people who fit in between these figures, which would be most people, as it'll save you $5 a month on your bill.

Like your current plan? You can keep it if you want; existing text plans will be grandfathered in when the switch happens.
