AT&T to drop all but Unlimited texting plans

AT&T is set to discontinue all but its most expensive, unlimited text messaging plans, leaving customers with a choice between expensive pay-as-you-go plans or paying for a full unlimited plan. The carrier has confirmed to Engadget that starting August 21, all new customers will have to choose between the $30/mo. Messaging Unlimited for Families or $20/mo. individual Messaging Unlimited, or go with the $0.20 per SMS, $0.30 per MMS pay per use plan. Notably, current customers will be allowed to keep their current plans—such as the $10 for 1000 messages plan—even when changing handsets.

This is ridiculous. I am an ATT customer with a grandfathered plan, but, this really confirms that the T-Mobile acquisition should not be approved, with less competitors, these companies will do whatever they want with the customers.
