Starting September 22nd, you can place direct calls to India, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea from your AT&T Wireless Phone.
Charge is $15/line, not per account
$45 or higher Mobile Share Plan is a requirement to add this feature.
Note: For customers not on unlimited calling plans, international long distance calls count against the monthly allotment of domestic voice minutes

Other competitive prices to India:

Vonage - 3000 minutes per month soft limit -- $18 promo price, ~$36 there after.
Skype 2500 minutes for $19.99
Google Voice 1c/minute which equates to $30 for 3000 minutes or $20 for 2000 minutes (GV is non-recurring means minutes don't expire after a month)

T-Mobile and Sprint already offer $15/line world calling that includes these countries and several others.

First time post, excuse for errors.

I guess too late when WhatsApp let you do free calls for Android users anywhere and quality is great.

First time post: Well posted.. keep going..

Also good that you brought out relative comparison of close deals to this.

Still AT&T is something I hate for life..
Was a AT&T Victim, became TMobile fanboiii and now Lycamobile+Dial91 customer.

I still pay for one cent/minute for non-recurring deals like Google/Dial91 etc...

Can you call non-whatsapp customer using whatsapp? I dont think so.
OP's deal has nothing to do with a smart phone or Whatsapp...

iPhone, Windows Phone, and Blackberry 10 as well. http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/iphone/28041117

Still, more options are better, so this is a good deal for AT&T users (better than nothing). I guess carriers are now trying to mimic what T-Mobile started (even though this doesn't include 120+ countries or discounted International Roaming at $0.20/min).

Repped OP for the effort. I'm genuinely impressed with the comparisons, and information links.

I don't think T-Mobile gives you free calling to East Asia/India?

I was lucky to get on the $10 Unlimited International Calling Plan that Tmobile offered very briefly last year...This is not per line but just $10 shared across all 4 lines on my account... ...nothing can beat that offer

For Vonage and other VOIP services, you have to factor in what you are paying to Internet access to get that service.

Rebtel offers unlimited India calls for $8/month... and you can share it with multiple phone lines too! Been using it so far with their app on iOS and works like a charm. Hope this helps.nod

Actually T-mobile's plan is per account... $10 unlimited international calling to 60 countries, including India mobile numbers, and there is even a $5 plan for fewer countries, and online landlines in India.

I don't think T-Mobile gives you free calling to East Asia/India?

Stateside International ($10/mo/line)
- or -
Stateside International w/ Mobile ($15/mo/line)

This is the T-Mobile offering that AT&T is trying to copy with their $15/mo/line add-on (albeit watered-down).

It WAS per account. That was a limited-time offer and was discontinued December 2014.

The new offering is in my post above... and now T-Mobile has expanded it to 120+ countries (grandfathered customers included).

Vonage charge around $10-$15 in taxes itself. Good AT&T joined to offer asia calling features.
