AT&T iPhone 4S Upgraders Get Messaging Plan Changes
AT&T always has some kind of trick up their sleeve....
This is just a warning to double check. I am not saying that this affects EVERY AT&T customer. Just double check and make sure that your bill looks normal.
AT&T customers who have upgraded to an iPhone 4S need to double check their account settings. Anyone who upgraded might have had their text messaging and calling plan funked with. Back in the day when you had your old iPhone, you used to have unlimited text messaging and calling to and from any mobile to mobile in the U.S. According to some AT&T users, that has changed. Now AT&T users are reporting that their account settings have changed to a different $20/month bill with different features. Now, the new change is that you have unlimited text messaging, and free unlimited calling to AT&T customers only. However you will have to pay for the minutes that you use elsewhere (as in, it takes a chunk out of the minutes that you pay for). More information can be seen in the image below:
As you can see, both plans cost the exact same figure of $20/month. One of them just has less features. Users who upgraded to the iPhone 4S are reporting being automatically switched to the cheaper deal. If this includes you, I recommend that you get on the phone with an AT&T agent immediately before you wait too long and they refuse to change anything.
You may want to take a closer look at your bill if you have upgraded to the new iPhone 4S. I also recommend anyone that has done this for other carriers to also look at their bills to make sure that everything is straight and dandy.
If you have upgraded to the iPhone 4S and have this same issue, leave a comment below.
