AT&T’s $60 GoPhone Accounts Gain 4GB of Usable Data in Canada, Mexico

Posted by Tim-o-tato August - 17 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

For AT&T customers using the $60 a month GoPhone plan, the carrier is making the 4GB of high-speed data on your account usable for travel in the countries of Mexico and Canada.

Not new, but definitely noteworthy, when users pay with Auto Refill, they also save $5 on their monthly bill, bringing the total to $55 a month for 4GB of high-speed data in the US and across the border on both sides. These GoPhone accounts also feature AT&T’s Rollover feature, where unused data amounts carry over for a 30 day period. 

Lastly, if you don’t plan on traveling to Canada or Mexico, but do know people there, AT&T is adding unlimited talk and text to mobile and landlines inside those countries.

Check it out.

There’s plenty of content on the ASUS ZenFone 2 out there, but not everyone knows about the ZenFone 2E. This AT&T prepaid phone was announced with a $119.99 price point, surely a cost that will raise some eyebrows. It’s much cheaper than the average ZenFone 2, which was already considered super affordable!

Is there a catch? Will this phone fulfill your needs? It does sport a nice set of specs for the price, including an Intel Atom processor, 1 GB of RAM and a 5.0-inch screen. It could be the perfect phone for the casual user who doesn’t like contracts.

The ZenFone 2E is now available in both Walmart and Target retail locations in the United States, though it won’t be available in AT&T stores until Friday, July 24th. Best Buy will also have the device on sale starting August 2nd. Considering the list of decent specifications, $119.99 for the off-contract price of the phone really isn’t too bad at all.

AT&T GoPhone $60, $45 Plans automatically get Rollover Data

Posted by wicked May - 12 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Loyal AT&T GoPhone customers, especially those with GoPhone $60 and $45 Monthly Plans, will be happy to know that automatic Rollover Data is now offered. This promo adds more data to your current plan for longer hours of streaming, posting, and surfing. Instant Rollover Data will start on May 15 or after plan renewal after the date. This means those with the said monthly plans will be able to use unused and rolled over high-speed plan data for 30 days if they renew plan with AT&T.

AT&T won’t require any credit check or annual contract to avail of the Rollover Data. Eligible subscribers will actually get it automatically. So how does the Roll Over Data plan work? If a new subscriber signed up for the $60 GoPhone plan after May 16 but was unable to use all high-speed data within a month, the remaining unused data will be carried over to the next month.

This simply means unused data allocation won’t be wasted because it will be “rolled over” to your plan, to be used within 30 days. Unused Rollover Data will expire after the given period and will no longer be carried over to the next month.

The $$60 and $45 GoPhone plans are great deals. They include unlimited data usage, unlimited calling to Mexico from the US, unlimited nationwide talk and text (including text to Mexico, Canada, and over 100 countries) for the $60 plan only, and Wi-Fi hotspot capability.

GoPhone rolls out Rollover Data

Posted by wicked May - 11 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

AT&T’s prepaid phone service, GoPhone, is adding the Rollover Data benefit to all new and existing accounts. Similar to the feature on regular AT&T plans, GoPhone customers on the $60 and $45 per month plans who have unused data at the end of a cycle can use that data in the next cycle, technically 30 days. Customers do have to renew their plan on time to get this benefit.

AT&T says the new benefit will be available starting on May 15th for new customers. For existing customers, the change will take place on their next renewal date after May 15th. When data rolls over, it is the last used, not first used, so it will only help if you splurge on using data while the rollover is available.

AT&T GoPhone Plans Get Rollover Data Too

Posted by Kellex May - 11 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

Because AT&T wants to “thank” its GoPhone customers, the wireless carrier is adding Rollover Data to its $45 and $60 prepaid plans starting May 15 at no extra charge. The new feature is available automatically to both new and current GoPhone customers. 

With Rollover Data, customers get to use unused high-speed data from the previous billing cycle during their current billing cycle. Say you pay for the 4GB $60 plan and only use 2GB this month, then next month you would have 4GB to use, plus an additional 2GB of Rollover Data available at full 4G LTE speeds.

Keep in mind that RollOver Data on AT&T only carries over to the next month and then disappears if unused. In other words, you can’t bank months and months worth of data, then go H.A.M. on it later down the road with a big 12GB month. Still, extra data on the next month at no added charge is a bonus. Thanks, AT&T.

AT&T adds Mexico to GoPhone plan, ups data allowance on two GoPhone plans

Posted by wicked February - 17 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

AT&T continues to capitalize on their acquisition of Iusacell and expanding into the Mexican market. Last month the carrier added free calling to Mexico for AT&T customers. Not to be left out, AT&T’s prepaid service GoPhone is reaping some benefits of the expansion.

Starting February 20th, GoPhone users on the $60 plan will enjoy the same unlimited calling to Mexico that AT&T customers get. 

AT&T also tweaked two of their data plans a bit to provide some additional high-speed data to their GoPhone users. GoPhone customers who have a 1 GB plan for $45 per month will see their high speed data cap increase to 1.5 GB per month. Users who currently have 2.5 GB plan for $60 per month will have a new high-speed cap at 4 GB of data. When customers exceed their monthly cap, AT&T throttles data speed, but there are no additional charges to continue to access the data network.

AT&T says the changes are just a way to show their appreciation for GoPhone customers. Users on either plan do not need to do anything to take advantage of these additional features – AT&T will automatically add them to user accounts.

AT&T Confirms Our Report: GoPhone $60 Plan Jumps to 4GB, $45 to 1.5GB

Posted by Kellex February - 17 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Yesterday, we reported that AT&T was planning to bump up the data package for its $60 and $45 GoPhone plans to 4GB (from 2.5GB) and 1.5GB (from 1GB), respectively. This morning, they confirmed the changes.

The updated plans go live February 20.

AT&T GoPhone $60 Plan Getting Bump to 4GB, $45 Plan to 1.5GB

Posted by Kellex February - 16 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

According to sources of ours, AT&T’s line of prepaid GoPhone plans are getting upgrades beginning Wednesday, February 18, plus AT&T will also introduce a new $30 plan and a daily data package for $2 daily customers. The new changes arrive only three months after AT&T changed the plans to unlimited data and introduced a new $45 tier. Still, I think GoPhone customers are going to be excited about these changes. 

The $60 plan is jumping from 2.5GB of high-speed data to 4GB of data per month without a price change. The $45 plan is jumping from 1GB of high-speed data to 1.5GB data per month. It is our understanding that these $60 and $45 plans are staying “unlimited” as well, though the speeds will be reduced to 128Kbps once those data buckets are used up. As a reminder, AT&T’s GoPhone plans get to use full AT&T 4G LTE speeds, unlike the 8Mbps throttled speeds of someone like Cricket.

Along with those changes, a new $30 plan will arrive on Wednesday, though it only includes unlimited talk and text, plus unlimited talk to Mexico, Canada, and over 100 other countries. This plan does not have data, but customers can buy a $5 100MB package.

If you are a user of the $2 Daily Unlimited Talk and Text plan, AT&T is introducing to you a $1 per 100MB daily data package.

For existing customers in any of these plans, the changes will take effect automatically on your next plan renewal starting February 18.

$60 a month for 4GB of high-speed LTE data on AT&T’s network without a contract? That’s a pretty solid deal.

AT&T revamps GoPhone prepaid plans with $45 option

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

att_gophone_plans_112014

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.
