I’m sure it’s purely coincidental that just as iMessage is about to hit in iOS 5, AT&T is removing all of their lower-priced text messaging plans.
It’s not like the masses were about to rush to downgrade their rip-off SMS plans or anything.
Now it will be all or nothing — meaning most won’t downgrade. How weird, this timing.
A cynical person may think that AT&T are being huge fucking scumbags here. Really, they’re just “streamlining” their plans. Just like when they “streamlined” their plans by removing unlimited data a few months back.
It’s all in the name of what’s best for the consumer. What class acts.
