Weren’t we just talking about how wireless carriers are gouging customers on SMS text message and MMS picture/video messaging rates? Yea, well, it looks like AT&T’s turning up the heat and raising their messaging rates for the pay-per-use set…again.
Customers without messaging bundles will be seeing their SMS text message-costs rise to $0.20 (20 cents) per message, with each MMS picture/video message costing $0.30 (30 cents) each. Come March 30, these new rates will help AT&T gouge the casual SMS and MMS message-user for their hard-earned bucks. Granted, we’re talking pennies here, but it’s about the principle here.
So, if you use more than a handful of text or picture messages every month, we’d suggest that you get yourself on a messaging-bundle soon.
