Default Unlimited Texing.... EVER?

Greetings!

I've been lurking for a while and have a question about Cingular's text
message plans. I've got several friends who have Cingular and have
unlimited text messaging (they claim it's $7.99/mo). Cingular tells me
it's not available. I'm thinking the reason MAY be because I'm on a
family plan and my friends are on individual plans, but Cingular won't
tell me. (you know, the usual run-around).

Anyone have a definitive answer? Do I need to get 3 individual plans
instead of a family plan? Do I have to beg in a certain pitch? Do I
have to talk to the correct person while standing on one leg?

Many thanks!

Chris

AFAIK there is no such option or package. The closest you can get is
MEdia Max 3000 ($40/month), which is an average of 100 messages/day
(plus Unlimited MEdia Net). MEdia Works would give you 1000 messages
(average of 33/day) for $15/month (plus 5 MB data).

I haven't seen such a package and I was pricing plans closely a few months
back. Perhaps Cingular offers a deal for unlimitted in-network texting?
Verizon offers such a package; $10 for 500 text messages and unlimitted IN
text messages. I believe T-Mobile also has an unlimitted text messaging plan.
