AT&T pulled out one more strategy in an attempt to prevent defections to Verizon for the iPhone with an unlimited calling option. Unlimited Mobile to Any Mobile lets those who have unlimited messaging but a limited voice plan make unlimited calls to anyone in the US on a cellphone, regardless of which carrier the receiver uses. The strategy is a similar though not identical to Sprint's Any Mobile, Anytime plan.
Two leaks on Friday have detailed some of AT&T's plans both to accommodate oversaturation on its 3G network and to segment its 4G network. One slip has revealed that AT&T will hand out free 3G MicroCell routers to the 7.5 percent of customers likely to have poor indoor reception. The only limit Engadget noted was a one-year contract specific to the femtocell; breaking the term would cost the newly raised $200 price minus $16.67 per month for every month the user remains with AT&T.
