iMessage is a killer texting feature we’re looking forward to in iOS 5.It enables users to send unlimited text, photo, and video from iPhone to iPhone for free. Think of it as Apple’s response to BBM.

It’s bound to shake up the world of paid texting, especially when you consider that this is what carriers are charging, as broken down by MSNBC.

AT&T:

You have two choices. Unlimited texting for $20 per month, or pay as you go for $0.10 per message.

Sprint:

You get no choice at all — you have to get an unlimited plan, which is charged to you inside of your monthly bill.

Verizon:

This comes off as least terrible when compared to iMessage — $5 for 250, $10 for 500, or $20 for unlimited. You can text Verizon-to-Verizon for free.

iMessage:

Just buy your iPhone, iPod, or iPad and message away to any other iDevice for $0 per month.
