AT&T debuts unlimited calling to any mobile number in America

AT&T today announced that customers can enjoy unlimited mobile calling to any mobile number in America. Unlimited Mobile to Any Mobile is available to AT&T customers with an unlimited messaging plan and a qualifying voice plan.*

“Mobile to Any Mobile is an exciting offer that will keep our customers connected to the people they want to talk to, when they want to talk to them, without the hassle of watching minutes,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets, in the press release. “We’re giving customers more options and even better value. And when you include Rollover Minutes, a benefit available exclusively from AT&T that lets customers keep their unused minutes for all domestic calls, including to landline numbers, it’s clear that AT&T offers the most flexibility in the industry.”

Unlimited messaging is available for $20 per month on an individual plan and $30 per month for a FamilyTalk Plan, which allows for up to five lines.

*Available only with select Nation and FamilyTalk plans. Direct calls to & direct calls received from US mobile numbers only. Rollover Minutes: Unused Anytime Mins expire after the 12th billing period. Night & Weekend & Mobile to Mobile mins do not roll over.

      1. I bet you that will be coming anytime soon. Seriously. There is talk about this going on right now, on how they could monetize just what you are talking about.

        As companies like AT&T and Verizon continue to lose handset control – as someone pointed out below – their margin will erode further and further.

        They are going to have to come up with something only a carrier could come up with – and that will be charge-by-post to facebook, twitter and so on, “But you can buy the $10 per month face/twit/gmail package, and it will all be included.”, will be the pitch. I can hear it now.

        Let’s not kid ourselves, they will try anything…

    1. From the post: “Beginning Thursday, Mobile to Any Mobile will be available to new and existing AT&T customers with a qualifying voice plan who subscribe to unlimited messaging plans.”

      And you’ll find the $20.00 price for Unlimited Text in the post as well.

  1. I already don’t count minutes.

    I have three iPhones on my AT&T plan, and we don’t use a landline.

    I am in sales, and my work extension is transferred to my iPhone.

    I use A LOT of minutes.

    We are on the family shared 700 minute program, and never go over the allotted minutes, due to free weekends, mobile to mobile, and roll-over.

    This will be a welcome addition to our plan, but I really don’t see that it will cost AT&T very much in the longrun.

  2. Why I know that some are not happy with their AT&T iPhones, I am not one of them. It’s just works better for me where I live so this is an added bonus for us who don’t plan on switching. Thanks

  3. Hooray competition!

    Been a Verizon customer for years, and was planning on waiting for the iPhone 5, but AT&T is seriously luring me into switching carriers once the launch happens.

  4. What’s with the AT&T hate @ MDN? I was with Verizon up until the iPhone came out and they sucked customer service wise. I don’t want to go back. Probably never.

    Just because it’s good for Apple doesn’t make this event the rapture. Zealous defense against Android’s progress is not necessarily a promotion of a better platform.

    You guys need to ground yourselves a bit. Now bring on the hate …

  5. Just give me flat rate pricing. Enough with classifying text as something different from data.

    Wish Apple would become an MVNO.

    Having said that, why all the AT&T hatred? No problems here in South Florida or on my recent trip to Vail, CO. I’d only switch to Verizon if I was in one of AT&T’s poor coverage areas. But I’d switch back to Sprint if they get the iPhone and I’m out of contract.
