I’m bummed if it's not true!

iphone manual statement about free text messages

Hi;
On page 59 of iPhone the Missing Manual there is a mention of 200 free text messages / month. According to AT&T that isn't true. Is there something i'm missing?

  • Hi jackandsue,

    AT&T changed their iPhone plans since that edition of the Missing Manual was published. The second edition of iPhone: The Missing Manual explains how AT&T's new plans work:

    The original iPhone service plan came with 200 free text messages per month; the iPhone 3G plan doesn't come with any at all. You can pay $5 a month for those 200 messages, or pay more for more. Keep in mind that you use up one of those 200 each time you send or receive a message, so they go quickly.


    You can see a Google Preview of iPhone: The Missing Manual, 2nd Edition here: http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596521677/preview.html

    Also, there are details on AT&T's current iPhone plans at http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/specials/iphone-info.jsp

    You might also be interested in using iPhone: The Missing Manual as an iPhone App. It's currently available from the App Store at an introductory price of $4.99. Check it out here.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks,
