AT&T GoPhone Adds the Apple iPhone SE to Device Lineup

apple-iphone-se
A few days ago, Apple unleashed their latest smartphone, the iPhone SE. With their announcement, carriers have also started to add the device to their device lineup. So far, only the major carriers have announced that the device will be available with their plans. Today, however, AT&T's prepaid brand GoPhone has confirmed availability of the iPhone SE on their prepaid phone lineup; making them the first prepaid brand to carry what Apple claims to be "the most powerful 4-inch phone ever."

Compared to their previous devices, Apple released the iPhone SE as a smaller and cheaper smartphone. Its main selling point is its 4-inch Retina display with a LED-backlit IPS LCD screen and a resolution of 640x1136 pixels. Despite its small display size, the iPhone SE comes packed with a powerful Apple A9 dual-core 1.84 GHz Twister processor with 2GB of RAM and an internal storage option of either a 16GB or 64GB model. On the back, there is a 12MP camera with dual-LED flash and 4K video recording. The front is home to a 1.2MP camera with 720p HD video recording as well. Battery-wise, the iPhone SE sports a non-removable Li-Po 1,642 mAh battery that helps it last up to 14 hours of talk time and 240 hours of standby time. For connectivity, the device is built with 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi, USB 2.0, GPS, and NFC for Apple Pay only. Upon release, the iPhone SE runs on the latest iOS 9.3 OS. It comes with a color choice of Space Gray, Rose Gold, Silver, and Gold.

With its availability on AT&T GoPhone, the iPhone SE may be ordered for $399.99 (for the 16GB model) and $499.99 (for the 64GB model). The device may then be paired with any of the prepaid plans offered by AT&T GoPhone.

  • $30/month - comes with unlimited talk, text, international messaging to over 100 countries and WiFi access while cellular high speed data can be added for $5 per month - 100MB.
  • $45/month - comes with unlimited talk, text and data with first 2GB at high speeds plus unlimited messaging to over 100 countries.
  • $60/month -   comes with unlimited talk, text and data with first 5GB at high speeds, unlimited messaging to over 100 countries, and unlimited talk and text from the U.S. to Mexico and Canada.
The $45 and $60 monthly plans may be enrolled in auto pay for a $5 monthly discount. Rollover data may also be used but only for a 30-day period. Once the monthly data allotment has been used up, any added data add-ons will be used before the rolled over data. After which, GoPhone throttles data speeds to 128Kbps until the next billing cycle. Add-ons available are 500MB for $10 ($45 plan) and 1GB for $10 ($60 plan).

The iPhone SE will start shipping on March 30, 2016. It's important to note that while these prices for the iPhone SE are locked to AT&T GoPhone, Apple sells unlocked models of the iPhone SE at the same prices.

  1. >The iPhone SE will start shipping on March 30, 2016. It's important to note that while these prices for the iPhone SE are locked to AT&T GoPhone, Apple sells unlocked models of the iPhone SE at the same prices.

    This is what I was wondering about. What is the advantage of buying the SE from GoPhone instead of unlocked from Apple?

    1. There is none, just like any other iPhone sold by any prepaid carrier. The only prepaid carrier I know of that discounts the price of the iPhones they sell in Boost Mobile which often sells their iPhones for $100 less than anyone else.

    2. The only reason to buya locked phone from a carrier is if itś substantially cheaper than the unlocked equivalent.

      In addition to Boost, Virgin Mobile, Sprint Prepaid, Straight Talk and Cricket either currently discount their iPhones are have in the recent past.

      Pure TalkUSA offers a $10 plan discount for 12 months to customers who purchase a new 6s or 6s Plus.

  2. I'am going to use my bestbuy gift card and buy a AT&T IPhone SE at bestbuy and get it unlock for free via AT&t non customer way. You can't use a gift card on the apple site unlock you have a apple gift card.

    2. The non-AT&T Mobility customer for unlocking AT&T prepaid phones has been saying lately that this device(s)is currently not eligible for unlocking. Something has changed with the way they were doing things. Maybe this new AT&T GoPhone iPhone SE has something to do with it.

  3. Possibly get support from Brand company. For example, assistance.

    1. Carriers never sell unlocked phones. If you buy a phone from a carrier, expect it to be locked.

  5. price is same as at apple store. but maybe expect a price drop at at&t before ever seeing a price drop at the apple store.

    but cheaper to get a used 5S. can settle for that. or just stay with my 5. looks the same. can still use the new iOS 9.3 although not with latest new features.

  6. I'm hoping Cricket will discount the SE similar to the iPhone 5S.

    1. Jon: Are they unlocking new full-price AT&T locked phones on the site?

      I wonder because I consider getting a new, "raw" priced S7 Edge to use on Cricket.

      Will they unlock it right away, or make me wait 6 months... forcing me to get a phone from someone other than AT&T?

  9. I tried with my zmax 2 and they refused...

    1. Not sure but from my experience, you should not boot phone with at&t sim card. I got an unlock code in 2 biz days for lumia 640. If it doesn't work for you, best buy has 15 day return policy. :)
