AT&T Mobile Share Plans Get Unlimited International Messaging

This addition to Mobile Share plans became effective on February 28, and will take effect on existing subscribers’ accounts automatically. While this is a great new feature for those with contacts overseas, only phone to phone messaging is included, with 70 countries limited to text only.

AT&T Drops Data Plan Prices for Family Sharing

Competition between wireless carriers gets hotter every day, and now AT&T has rolled out brand new Mobile Share Value Plans for families. Both existing customers and new subscribers are eligible for the plans, which can save AT&T customers on older plans significant coin. Of course, those who still have unlimited data will need to abandon this privilege to switch plans.

Basically, for any Mobile Share Value Plan with a 10GB or larger shared data bucket, each iPhone on the plan is only $15. This means 10GB with four smartphones clocks a monthly cost of $160. Besides sharing the data among devices, personal hotspot tethering is included along with unlimited voice calling and text messaging.


How to Swap an iPhone Upgrade on AT&T [Cross Upgrade]

Often one family member on an AT&T Mobility wireless plan is an early adopter, and must have the latest iPhone the minute it's available. Standard two-year contracts exceed the typical iPhone upgrade cycle, which is where a line swap comes into play. Staggering upgrade eligibility around 12 months apart means that someone on the plan gets a new iPhone every year.

Officially, upgrading on an eligible line, then swapping the new device to another line on the same plan is called a "cross upgrade". Cross upgrading from the iPhone 5 to the 5s can be achieved without even contacting AT&T, although to match the phone numbers to the correct device a quick call to customer service (611) is recommended. AT&T condones the practice of cross upgrading, as long as the wireless plan bill is in good standing and there's a line currently eligible to upgrade.

AT&T Mobile Share with No Annual Contract Now Available

Competition between carriers offering unsubsidized iPhones, contract-free data plans and other options keeps getting hotter. AT&T Mobility has taken another step in this direction, and now offers its Mobile Share plans with no-contract pricing. Mobile Share Value Plans are now available, promising to save AT&T subscribers $15 per month.

The new plans officially launched on December 8th. AT&T seems to be directly competing with T-Mobile's recent offerings, which remove subsidized devices from the equation. With AT&T Next, customers can choose to purchase a new iPhone outright with no contract or sign up for a monthly installment payment plan.
