Today AT&T announced a new GoPhone plan that provides unlimited talking and unlimited text, video and picture messaging for $60 per month. The plan includes unlimited texting to Canada and Mexico. The new plan will be available starting October 12.
Talk all day and text all night? Now you have the freedom to talk and text all you want for just $60 a month with AT&T* Unlimited Talk and Text. Available beginning October 12, the new GoPhone prepaid feature package offers unlimited nationwide calling and unlimited texting to anyone in the U.S., plus it includes texting to Mexico, Canada and more than 100 other countries worldwide. With this new package option, customers can also send unlimited IM, picture and video messages.
This is unheard of at&t doing. I got gophone service....i use my G1 and it being a quad band phone....on US-20 going from michigan to indiana...no service for over an hour of driving. idk why at&t is so expensive with such horrible service. with t-mob i never experienced dead zones, not even in the smokey mountains in Tennessee, my at&t phone had no signal there. might just go back to t-mob and get a flexpay plan
This is a really great deal. Prepaid means no overages, no taxes and you can talk and text all you want for $2 a day. Great for kids or even for adults if data is not needed. A nice price point for unlimited which is much cheaper than a regular plan.
it will have an effect, think about it a customer walks in wonders how much unlimited everything plan is for just talk and text that approximately is $120 + tax. Then they see the go phone plan for $60 for the same exact thing just an inferior network... (continues)
This new $60 unlimited talk and text is NOT a plan. Currently, you can buy features (texting, data usage etc...) with any of the above plans and it just takes from your balance. This new $50 unlimited talk and text IS a feature.
How to get it: You must be on the simple rate plan (25 cent a minute). You get a balance of $60 or greater and then you call 611 and add the $60 unlimited talk/text feature. -$60 from your account and then you have it for the next 30 days.
Our store got an email this morning detailing how it works.
