Atlantans love to travel, and in the summer they like to head abroad. Why should you have to wait to share pictures, videos or other highlights from your overseas excursions? AT&T has announced a new Global Messaging 50 Package that makes it more affordable to send text, picture, video and instant messages while abroad.
AT&T’s new Global Messaging 50 Package lets customers send 50 mobile messages – including text, instant, picture and video messages – from more than 90 countries for a flat rate of $10.00 per month. Customers may add it to their current calling plan beginning on March 20.
AT&T’s new package offers customers a significant savings when compared to international roaming pay-per-use rates for messaging, which are $.50 per message sent for text and instant messages and $1.30 per message sent for picture and video messages. With AT&T’s Global Messaging 50 Package, the $10.00 flat-rate monthly charge equates to $.20 per message sent-any message. Additionally, messages sent over the monthly limit are charged an overage rate of $.40 per message-also lower than the pay-per-use rates for sending messages while abroad.
Messages received while abroad will be charged according to the customer’s regular domestic plan.
To sign up for the new Global Messaging 50 Package or other international plans, customers can stop by their local AT&T store, call 866-MOBILITY or visit att.com/mywireless.
