[AT&T Wireless announces text messaging agreements with major Mexican carriers and first international text messaging monthly plan in US to include 50 messages at $4.99 per month with incoming messages free and unlimited.]

Mexico D.F. -- AT&T Wireless today announced the recent expansion of its international text messaging (SMS) services, permitting delivery of text messages between Mexican and North American users. The service helps build a communications bridge across the border that supports business development with Mexico's primary trading partner and links the more than 10 million Mexicans living in the United States with their family and friends in Mexico.

In addition, AT&T Wireless announced the availability of the first international text messaging monthly plan in the U.S., giving customers 50 text messages from the U.S. for $4.99 per month. AT&T Wireless subscribers who select this plan can lower the cost of sending international text messages to as little as $.10 per message. Unlike most national U.S. carriers, incoming text messages to AT&T Wireless subscribers are free and unlimited.

With AT&T Wireless's reciprocal international text messaging in place in more than eight Latin American countries, 24 European countries, and dozens of countries across the rest of the world, users can keep in touch with families and friends within Latin America and in the United States. AT&T Wireless now has agreements with virtually all Mexican operators, including Iusacell, Telcel, Telefonica MoviStar and Unefon. The company's international text messaging capabilities allow AT&T Wireless users to reach the overwhelming majority of mobile users across the globe in more than 80 countries, through more than 200 local operators.

Price and Availability

Virtually all mobile subscribers in Mexico can exchange messages with approximately 20 million AT&T Wireless customers with compatible handsets.

To send a text message to an AT&T Wireless subscriber, mobile users in Mexico simply enter the country code, and the telephone number: 001(2125555555).

AT&T Wireless customers in the U.S. can send and receive text messages to users in other countries for $0.25. AT&T Wireless subscribers can also sign up for the international text messaging plan which gives them 50 messages to send for $4.99 per month. This plan can effectively lower the cost of sending international text messages to as little as $.10 per message, which is comparable to domestic text messaging rates. Unlike with most other U.S. carriers, AT&T Wireless customers only pay for text messages that they send. Customers can receive unlimited incoming text messages at no charge.

In addition, AT&T Wireless' GSM/GPRS customers can roam on various networks while abroad and can use their phones to send and receive text messages to and from users in the United States and other countries. Pricing may vary, depending on the operators' rates and the users' rate plans.

AT&T Wireless now offers international text messaging in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru, the Dominican Republic and Venezuela. A complete list of countries that support international text messaging can be found at AT&T Wireless will continue to expand international text messaging capabilities throughout the year.
