AT&T to launch unlimited calling to any mobile number

image

AT&T has announced that starting tomorrow, select customers will get unlimited mobile calling to any mobile number in the U.S., regardless of carrier. According to the announcement, the new feature will be free for any AT&T customer who is on a qualifying Nation or FamilyTalk plan and who is also signed up for an unlimited messaging plan. Existing customers will need to visit a special website—www.att.com/anymobile—tomorrow to activate the feature. Notably, AT&T has yet to specify which Nation and FamilyTalk plans will qualify for the feature; we will update this story as soon as that information is available.

Update: AT&T has posted a brief comment to its Facebook post saying that customers “need to be on a qualifying voice plan, either AT&T Nation 450 & 900 Or AT&T FamilyTalkNation 700 and higher.” [Thanks, Michael S]

Update x2: AT&T has announced further details of the feature. To sign up, eligible customers need to sign in to their online account, remove their existing unlimited messaging plan, and add the new unlimited messaging plan that includes “Mobile to Any Mobile” calling. More information is available from the company’s Frequently Asked Questions page.

Once again ****ed by AT&T. Why is it family plan people get this. What about those of us why don’t have a family plan because we don’t have a family. That’s f***ing BS. Yet another reason i will be leaving AT&T when my contract is up!

#1,

“The new feature will be free for any AT&T customer who is on a qualifying Nation *or* FamilyTalk plan and who is also signed up for an unlimited messaging plan.”

The feature will be available for individual users (those on the aforementioned “Nation” plans). It’s just not yet clear which of those plans will be eligible.

AT&T made a post of their Facebook page explaining that the feature will be available to all individual and family domestic voice plans except the Family 550 plan.

I have an iPhone 4 Family Plan with my brother, we are on the 550 Family plan, they sent me a text saying an extra 1,000 minutes would be added to my roller minutes. I hardly use the phone that much, about 30min-1hr at MOST per day, so extra minutes doesn’t really help or anything haha

Hey, look! AT&T is trying to match Sprint now! Since, you know, Sprint’s had that for a while and all. On all plans.

Its so fun to watch AT&T thrash in the absence of iPhone exclusivity…
