AT&T today confirmed that its GoPhone customers can now access its HSPA+ and LTE 4G data networks. The change means that owners of devices such as the iPhone 5 or other LTE-capable equipment will be able to browse the web at faster speeds. "Starting today, new AT&T GoPhone customers have the option of connecting to our nation's largest 4G network if they purchase a 4G or 4G LTE device at full retail price or bring their own 4G or 4G LTE device," said AT&T. GoPhone customers who already have HSPA+ or LTE-capable equipment will receive an over-the-air update that enables HSPA+/LTE network access on June 12. GoPhone customers have to be on the $25, $50, or $65 monthly plan in order to access the faster data speeds.

still no iphone

just because they are expanding their gophone coverage to hspa+ and LTE doesnt mean that you will be able to use an iphone on it. it was never a 4g thing it has always been a policy that the iphone is not allowed to access their prepaid network.
While every pre-paid phone works on a post-paid account, not every post-paid phone will work on a pre-paid account. Is the iPhone used on a prepaid account anywhere?
It was a policy that no iPhones were allowed on prepaid... last year. Now they're allowed on GoPhone service, but before yesterday they only worked with talk/text, no data. Now they work with talk, text and data.

The only phones not support...
Who cares, the IPhone is a cult phone.
People who have the IPhone aren't induviduals, their just the same as everyone else.

That is funny

Last time I checked their customer service could get 4G HSPA+ or LTE to work by just adding the feature to the account. And an OTA was not needed at all. Just kind of funny how AT&T is so behind on their prepaid side.
They are using their new customers as guinea pigs because they don't know if their are bugs in it still. They are still only offering 1 GB of data which is a joke compared to other prepaid services.
