PlatinumTel adds two new plans

Yesterday PlatinumTel introduced two new unlimited talk and text plans, for $45 and $55 per month. The $45 plan includes 150MB of 3G data on top of the unlimited talk and text features, and the $55 plan ups that data allotment to 2GB. The only catch is that picture messages cost 5 cents each to send. The press release mentions “lower rates for PlatinumTel’s Unlimited Plans,” so presumably the original $50 unlimited plan is on its way out. It offered unlimited talk and text with just 100MB of data, so the $45 plan is better anyway. The rates aren’t quite posted yet, but you’ll be able to sign up for a new plan at PlatinumTel’s website.
