    AT&T no longer forcing messaging plans onto texting phones

    "It was a flat-out confusing requirement," noted Matthew Kunkle, an analyst at Current Analysis. "It was a $20 messaging or data package requirement, yet most of the data and messaging packages weren't $20, so customers had to combine two to make it past the $20 level."

    AT&T now recommends that purchasers of its messaging devices also purchase an unlimited texting plan, but it does not require such plans.
