Today AT&T announced several new data plans that offer customers some flexibility when it comes to mobile data. The three new plans include a day pass, which includes 75MB for $15; a week pass, which includes 250MB for $30; and a monthly pass, which includes 500MB for $50. None of these plans requires a contract and AT&T's wireless data services are available within the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The world is going prepaid

No more subsidies, prepare USA. Soon your phone will be triple what it is now with a 2 yr contract.

Beware the prepay, beware the prepay.

I love the idea of no subsidies.
Yes, reality hurts,I use prepaid & the rest of the world too.(60% I suppose)
who sees the benefits for the customer in signing a contract? I sell T-Mobile (as well as others)We could sell the Even More Plus plans which require no contract but they make no sense for our customer. If you want to buy a My Touch on the unlimited p...

Follow the Leader

This was a horrible idea when Verizon launched and it is for AT&T as well. Does anyone believe that AT&T will not eventually roll out the $350 Advanced Devices ETF policy? If not why haven't they attacked Verizon for it yet? How about Verizon eliminating the Vcast Vpak $15 feature in favor of the the 25MB $9.99 and $75MB $19.99 options? Why hasn't AT&T hit them on those features in those hastily constructed commercials with Luke Wilson? Probably because they will be launching the same changes in the coming weeks. This is ridiculous. AT&T needs more to differentiate them from Verizon than simply the iphone exclusive and Rollover.

Virgin has better deals

You have to buy the device but you get 600MB for $40 for 30 days and for $10 more than AT&T they'll give you 1GB for 30 days.

Great for travelers. No overage fees?

For people who need infrequent access to data this is very good. The daily rate is the same as the daily-rate on Verizon mifi but the data allotment is so tiny. Perhaps they will sell "data only" sims that won't eat up your pre-paid dollars at the expensive per megabyte charge that currently exists when you have an overage on your prepaid data package. Now T-Mobile has to start offering pre-paid data...
