that drives me crazy with ATT.
you have a $5 200 TXT plan and a $15 1500 TXT plan. plus they just rates the rate of out of plan TXT to $.20 for regular and $.30 for pix.
they need an in the middle plan, like $10 for 750 TXT.
Sorry i went off topic, but IM is on the Data plan not the TXT plan in most cases. some phones have an IM TXT feature that makes your TXT look like an IM chat. but that's a rare feature at the moment.
I am a bit confused. If I IM on my phone, are the messages counted as text messages (for billing purposes), or are they included in the data plan?
I am changing my plan on Tuesday. I text 200+ but not 1500. (AT&T customer). If I switch to IM'ing some friends then I could handle the smallest texting plan.
Side note: wish AT&T would offer a $99 for all plan like Sprint...
