Red Pocket Mobile has sweetened the deal for their $29.99 prepaid monthly plan. The biggest change is with the included voice minutes which have jumped from 250 to unlimited. MMS (picture, video, audio) messaging also got a big boost, all the way from 10 MMS/month to unlimited.
As with most unlimited plans there are "fair use" limits but no stated caps. Based on Red Pocket users past experience I believe the voice minute and SMS limits are about 5000/month. I have no idea what the MMS limit is, but I suspect it's much lower as MMS consumes a good deal of data and data isn't cheap for AT&T MVNOs.
This plan change competes directly with Airvoice Wireless' new $30 plan which also has unlimited voice minutes and texts but no included MMS or data. Red Pocket also has some convenience advantages over Airvoice including longer customer support hours, multi-lingual (English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese and Tagalog) support and the availability of auto-pay. For reference here are all of Red Pocket's current plans.
