Below is a video explaining the new Mobile Share Value Plan for AT&T which works in conjunction with the Next program for equipment.
On February 28, 2014, AT&T launched two of its best-ever offers for international messaging and direct dial calling from the U.S., delivering more value to customers who want to connect with family, friends and coworkers living abroad. The new offers are available to new and existing AT&T consumer (including Individual Responsibility Users) and business customers.
The first offer is unlimited international messaging from the U.S. to the World and is included on all Mobile Share plans. All new and existing Mobile Share Value and original Mobile Share customers will automatically have the new unlimited international messaging service added to their plans beginning on February 28, 2014. Customers can send as many text, picture, and video messages as they want, to their family and friends in over 190 countries for SMS and over 120 countries for MMS.
The second offer is international calling from the U.S. to any number anytime in over 35 countries including Canada and Mexico for $0.01 per minute with our new international calling package, World Connect Value.
For $5 a month, subscribers can get AT&T’s lowest international direct dial calling rates (voice only) from the U.S. to more than 225 countries.
Calls from the U.S. to Canada, Mexico, and the majority of Latin American and Caribbean countries are $0.01 per minute. The same low calling rate applies to calls to wireless and wireline numbers.
Calls to the rest of the world are as low as $0.08 per minute.
AT&T World Connect Value can be added to any rate plan.
