Is it price gouging if they keep the cost the same but take away features? If so, T-Mobile's just whipped their gouging-knives out and set their sights on the $25 Android data plan. The old plan included unlimited data and 400 text messages a month for just a hair under twenty-five dollars. According to Android and Me, T-Mo has made the decision to cut the text messages out of that plan.

You still get unlimited data for $25, and the $35 unlimited text and data plan is still unchanged, although it's quite possible that one will be the next plan to get neutered. Current T-Mo customers don't have to worry about their plans changing on them, but new customers or re-upping customers will have to take the new plan or upgrade to a better one.

Honestly, with Google Voice out, this really isn't that much of a hindrance. It can handle most of your texting needs. When you add in Google Chat and the other chat clients available on any Android smartphone, actually texting starts to look a little dated. Tell your Luddite friends to upgrade already so you can stop paying extra for what amounts to a pointless service.
