AT&T revamps GoPhone prepaid plans with $45 option

Posted by wicked November - 20 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off


Change is in the air for GoPhone prepaid plans at AT&T. Rather than halting the flow of data upon going over the cap, the carrier will throttle speed. Being throttled and handed overage fees is way better than being abruptly cutoff. The throttled speed is 128kbps. Customers currently on the $25 or $40 plans may want to take a look at the new $45 option. It offers a total of 1GB of data with unlimited talk and text. It offers a much better value because there is more wiggle room with data.

AT&T GoPhone launches Wireless Home & Internet plans

Posted by wicked September - 25 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off


The prepaid market has gotten quite competitive over the past couple of years with prices dropping and carriers adding new services to their prepaid offerings. AT&T’s popular GoPhone service is not immune to the competition and have added a couple of new plans to keep up with the ever-changing market, this time for your home phone and internet needs. With the purchase of a Wireless Home Phone & Internet device (they’re calling it the “Home Base”) and a home phone, GoPhone customers can enjoy unlimited nationwide calling and either 5GB or 10GB of data per month for $60 or $80 respectively.

Additionally, AT&T have launched a Wireless Home Phone plan for $20 a month that features unlimited calling and no data. For light internet users and people on the go, these plans are quite attractive. The Home Base retails for $199 while its voice-only cousin is discounted at $69 (normally $99). Hit the comments with your thoughts on AT&T’s new plans.

AT&T Intros GoPhone for Your Wireless Home Phone and Internet

Posted by Tim-o-tato September - 24 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

If using a prepaid service for your home phone and home Internet connection sounds like a good idea, AT&T introduced new GoPhone plans this morning that should make complete sense to you. Much like their prepaid wireless phone service, AT&T is offering the same tiered pricing service for home phones and Internet, but there is an interesting twist for those who sign up.

Usually, when someone has a home phone, that is exactly what it is – the phone and its number is attached to their house, unusable if you go on vacation or anywhere else. With AT&T’s GoPhone home phone service, customers can take their home phone device, a router, anywhere they go.  

Users must purchase the device from AT&T for the home phone, currently priced at $69.99 thanks to a special promotion price, then must pay a monthly fee of either $60 for 5GB of Internet data or $80 for 10GB.

Once you determine how much data you want, users automatically receive unlimited nationwide calling.

Before signing up, we would recommend taking a peek at how much data you use through your current ISP. For me, and many other “tech enthusiasts,” you might be surprised how quickly you an gobble up 5GB.

AT&T Brings GoPhone Plans to Compatible Tablets

Posted by Tim-o-tato June - 6 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

AT&T’s GoPhone plans are no-contract, 30-day, hassle-free plans that allow you to pay what you want, for exactly what you need. Starting this week, you can pick up a GoPhone plan for your tablet, as long as your tablet is compatible.

To set up a GoPhone plan is easy. Choose your plan, buy a SIM, then activate your account. The account is live for 30 days, then at the end of 30 days, you simply add more money to keep it alive. 

For now, there are three tiers to choose from for tablets – $15/month for 250MB of data, $30/month for 3GB, and $50 for 5GB. Of course, this is data only, so the GoPhone price is a bit cheaper than for a smartphone which uses messages and minutes on top of data.

I personally use a GoPhone plan for my phones, the $60 for 2.5GB of data. It’s a good deal, plus AT&T’s 4G LTE network is fast and reliable.

Own a tablet that is compatible? Check it out.

AT&T adds more data, hotspot feature to GoPhone plans

Posted by wicked April - 18 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

AT&T has introduced more data for some GoPhone plans, following in the footsteps of rival T-Mobile. The updated data scheme doesn’t raise cost for consumers, either, as all plan pricing stays as-is. In addition to the new data plans, AT&T is rolling out a new basic phone plan at $45/month.


The update for their data plans brings an extra 500MB data to the $60/month option — up to 2.5GB from 2GB. That plan will also give users unlimited talk and the ability to use their phone as a hotspot. The $40/month plan is also being updated to provide double the monthly data previously offered — 500MB, up from 250MB. That plan gives users 500 minutes of talk monthly.

The other two smartphone plans for GoPhone have not been altered. The $25/month plan is basic, and requires a data add-on, while the $50/month plan is a bit different from the rest. You get unlimited everything, but all data must be done over WiFi. The $45/month basic phone plan provides 1GB data with unlimited talk, but is only available in Wal-Mart stores.

It may not be quite as good as T-Mobile’s prepaid plan lineup, but it’s better for those who happen to be with GoPhone currently. More data is always appreciated, and the ability to create a WiFi hotspot is definitely a plus.

The $50 monthly plan with unlimited talk and text and the $25 monthly plan with 250 minutes and unlimited nationwide text with optional data packages will continue to be available to smartphone customers.

Launching in conjunction with this new smartphone rate plan is AT&T GoPhone’s newest Android device, AT&T Fusion™ 2, which lets customers enjoy the convenience of a smartphone with email, apps and web access for only $99.

“As more of our prepaid customers choose smartphones, we wanted to offer them a rate plan that meets their needs while still being an excellent value,” said Judy Cavalieri, vice president – Voice and Prepaid Products, AT&T. “We’re excited to offer this new option to our growing base of smartphone customers to give them a better smartphone experience while keeping their budget in check.”

Huawei Fusion 2 hits the FCC – headed for AT&T

Posted by wicked July - 23 - 2012 - Monday Comments Off

Huawei and AT&T have teamed up again to offer another extremely cheap and basic smartphone for their AT&T GoPhone pre-paid customers. The device was seen clearing the FCC earlier today, and is indeed headed for AT&T. Those looking for a pre-paid budget Android device could be in for a treat.

The folks from PhoneScoop spotted this budget offering, complete with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board. According to the FCC the Huawei Fusion 2 is extremely similar to the original in all ways. We have Gingerbread, a 3.2-inch display, a 3.2 megapixel rear facing camera, micro-SD support for extra storage, as well as the nifty Swype keyboard.

While this device isn’t anything special or top end, it will be an excellent entry-level smartphone for those aboard AT&T’s GoPhone prepaid services. With a decent OS and a low price this could be a decent device. We can clearly see the AT&T branding and apps pre-installed, so we’ll just have to wait for an official announcement. We’ll update when we hear more, and you can expect this phone to be dirt cheap when released.
