AT&T Global Messaging 50 Package: Limited Messaging While Traveling Outside of the U.S.

If you live in the U.S. and are planning to travel to another country, AT&T has what looks like a teaser plan for you:

AT&T Makes Messaging More Affordable While Traveling Abroad

The Global Messaging 50 Package lets you send 50 mobile messages from more than 90 countries for $10 per month. These messages can be text, photo, or video messages. Messages over the 50 limit will cost 40 cents per message. I use email and the web on my phone. So, this wouldn’t help me at all. And, if you are a heavy text messaging user, how long will 50 messages last for you? A day?

This is certainly better than nothing at all. But, not by much.
