New AT&T-Verizon Wireless Plans: Unlimited plan may cost more

By Peter Chubb - Jan 23, 2010

When we discussed the other day about the tweaks on the AT&T and Verizon Wireless talking plans we knew that it would spark off a pricing war. However, looking at a recent report from Cnet News, it seems that customers could end up paying more and not less.

Sprint Nextel was the first to offer an aggressive pricing plan, with the other big two following shortly after, but what is thought to be simpler pricing plans are now very difficult to understand. Customer are now finding it hard to understand where they can save money, so Cnet News thought that they would offer a FAQ for them.

The easiest way to understand these new pricing plans is that you will save more money on voice calls. All three carriers have lowered the price of their unlimited voice plans; it is when you want mobile Internet access when things get more expensive.

If you were thinking of signing a new contract or want to upgrade to a new phone, you should read through the Cnet News FAQ to understand what these changes mean to you, much better to find out now before it is too late and you are in a new 2-year contract.

The questions are not aimed just at AT&T and Verizon; there is also advice for Sprint and T-Mobile USA customers as well.
