att global messagingAT&T launched two global messaging plans today to attract international travelers who prefer to text while abroad.

Global Messaging 200 lets you send 200 messages for $30 per month, while Global Messaging 500 lets you send 500 text messages for $50 per month. Previously AT&T only offered a package of 50 text messages for $10. Don't let that fool you, though, as these prices are ridiculously expensive.

The new plans let you send text, photo, or video messages in more than 100 countries. Without a plan, AT&T charges $0.50 to send a text, $0.20 to receive a text, and $1.30 to send a message with a photo or video.
