Just saw this on C/Net.

AT&T subscribers let out a collective groan yesterday when the carrier announced it was raising text messaging fees by 5 cents. For those customers not using a messaging bundle plan, text messages will now cost 20 cents to send and receive while multimedia messages (aka picture messages) will now cost 30 cents to send and receive.

LOL . . . Another way to get the monies up front. Raise the price to get everyone on a package.

absurd! Why should we pay that much for something that most likely costs them nothing!? Picture messages, I understand has to cost them something, but I doubt it costs that much :(
