AT&T wants you to keep in touch with loved ones this holiday season.

We all have people in our lives whom we wish it was a little easier to get a hold of during Christmas. Whether it's a student heading off to college or an aging parent, just being able to hear their voice is a gift in itself. But if your family is in another country, like Canada or Mexico, a phone call becomes a huge spike added to your monthly bill. Luckily, AT&T plans to help this year.

AT&T has a simple solution: It's offering savings on its whole line of Unlimited plans. So, whether you want to contact someone a block over or across the border, with an AT&T Unlimited plan, you can wish anyone Merry Christmas. In addition to all this, there’s a ton of great deals available in AT&T’s Gift of the Galaxy sales event when you open a new line and get a new Samsung Eligible device on an installment plan with eligible unlimited plan.

AT&T’s Unlimited talk and text plans give you all the time you need to talk to your relatives inside the US or outside in Canada or Mexico. It’s just a matter of finding the plan that fits you best.
