AT&T GoPhone $25 per Month Prepaid Plan to Include Unlimited International Text Messaging

AT&T has announced that beginning Sunday July 15, the GoPhone $25 prepaid monthly prepaid plan will include no-extra cost unlimited text messaging to over 100 countries including Canada, Mexico, China, India and the Philippines (full list of covered countries).  The free international text feature was previously only available with the $2/day and $50/month unlimited prepaid plans.

The $25 plan also includes unlimited domestic text and picture messaging and 250 domestic voice minutes. Extra minutes are 10¢ each. There is no data included with this plan but data packages priced at $25/month for 1 GB, $15/month for 200 MB or $5/month for 50 MB are available.  Un-used data rolls over to the next month provided a new package of any denomination is added before the current package expires.

  2. I started the $25 GoPhone plan for my teen a few months ago because she texts a lot, but doesn't make or receive very many calls. Well, every month I have to buy more minutes because AT&T kept saying we were over the minutes.

    After many frustrating calls with customer service I discovered the minutes were going over because of how they count the calls. For example, a 10-second call is rounded up to 1 minute; a call that is 1 minute, 3 seconds is rounded up to 2 minutes, etc. You only find this out if you read all the fine print on the contract and I feel it is cheating and misleading.

    If someone mostly texts and just needs a few minutes per month then this plan will probably be OK.

    1. I'm sorry it took you by surprise, but rounding up minutes is something that virtually all US mobile and land line carriers have been doing on both post paid and prepaid accounts for many years.

      Outside the US, per second billing is quite common but not here.

  3. Apparently, it is no longer free to text India.

    1. You're right. It seems strange to remove India which has relatively low termination rates. Maybe the volume of texts to India made it uneconomical to support.
