AT&T to phase out per-minute, per-text billing

AT&T will no longer offer per-minute billing plans to most of its new customers, reports the Wall Street Journal. Following the industry trend towards unlimited talk time and texts, the company will only offer one per-minute plan, a meager 450 minutes per month for about $40, plus extra for texts and data. It will focus most of its revenue efforts on data plans, thus joining Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile in the trend.

I knew better than to ask on the next two iPhones I bought, thought they always asked me to buy the Apple Care policy. I never purchased that coverage though. If you have wished for insurance on your iPhone from AT&T rather than Apple, that wish will be made true soon.

LulzSec call it quits after 50 days of hacking and release AT&T docs on the way out

LulzSec call it quits after 50 days of hacking and release AT&T docs on the way out

The hacker group known as LulzSec set out on what they call a 50-day cruise. It was more like a 50-day hack fest where the group accessed all sorts of data and took sites offline. The data that the hackers accessed was released to the public for the most part. After the 50 days of hacking the group is now calling it quits. That is probably a good thing, I suspect with all the hacking going on and with some of the sites attacked being US government sites there will be some government-sponsored investigations going on.

Over 1M iPhones on T-Mobile USA

Over 1M iPhones on T-Mobile USA

AT&T made its plans to gobble up T-Mobile public back in March. The deal will cost AT&T $39 billion.

Most suspect that Sprint is simply trying to force some limits on the merged company to make its position stronger in the market. AT&T and Verizon are the only two carriers that official have the iPhone on their networks with Verizon only having the iPhone 4.
