Sprint, AT&T offer unlimited calling to select numbers

Now, iPhone users can revel in the savings enjoyed by T-Mobile and Verizon customers with their "myFaves" or "Friends and Family" features.

Starting Sept. 20, AT&T wireless customers with individual plans that cost $59.00 or more will be able to register up to five phone numbers for unlimited calling as part of AT&T's new "A-List" program.

Similarly, UPDATED: Consumers who use Sprint's $70 or $90 plans can sign five mobile phone numbers up for "Any Mobile, Anytime" for unlimited calls can call make unlimited calls to any mobile number on any network. No need to register any numbers, as the readers pointed out below.

Now, AT&T already offers unlimited mobile-to-mobile calls to other AT&T users, so you should only register folks on different plans than you. Wondering how to identify them?

As we've told you before, use the Web site Billshrink.com to research what numbers you call the most, particularly those who are on foreign networks.

Now, both companies are probably banking on two factors: the fact that most people don't use all their calling minutes anyway, and that most people probably won't go to the trouble of registering numbers (or remembering to update the list regularly, after breaking up with a significant other or if a family member switches companies).

However, it does give people a little more flexibility, if they have felt limited to one network because the majority of their calling goes to a certain cellular carrier.
