Looks like a win for Sprint. Verizon will probably follow ATT’s lead and implement the same pricing structure. Sprint has bucked the trend recently by launching unlimited data plans on its Virgin Mobile brand with a $25 entry point for unlimited data and 300 minutes of voice service. A 3G Blackberry can be used on Virgin for $35 with unlimited data and 300 minutes. The thing to watch for will be what happens when Android devices begin to hit the pre-paid networks. If Walmart’s Straight Talk introduces an Android device with unlimited data and talk at its current $45 price, the game will be over for the major carriers.
\nI see this move by ATT as a proactive measure before the launch of the new iphone with its forward facing camera which will increase data use as people will begin skyping indiscriminately. The new plans will keep this data usage in check so that the network won’t become overloaded.<\/p>\n\t\t\t\t\t<\/div>\n\t\t\t\t\t
