AT&T GoPhone Adds an Extra High-Speed GB to $45 and $60 Plans

smartphone-user
AT&T is giving its GoPhone users a reason to celebrate! If you have an account under this network, you'll be in for a treat starting Friday. Announced earlier, AT&T will be increasing the high-speed data allotted for both the $45 and $60 plan. With the announcement, the new plans now include the following:

  • $45/monthly - Includes unlimited talk and text in the US, unlimited messaging to Mexico, Canada and over 100 countries, and rollover data is applicable. Originally, the high-speed data allotted for this plan is only 2GB. Today's announcement adds an extra GB of high-speed data to the $45 plan turning it into 3GB of high-speed data. 
  • $60/monthly - Includes unlimited talk and text in the US, unlimited messaging to Mexico, Canada and over 100 countries, and rollover data is applicable. This plan also comes with unlimited talk and text from the US to Mexico and Canada as well as talk, text and data usage in those two countries. Originally, the high-speed data allotted for this plan is only 5GB. Today's announcement adds an extra GB of high-speed data to the $60 plan turning it into 6GB of high-speed data. 
Customers who decide to enroll their account with Auto Refill can further enjoy $5 discounts on the two plans, making it only $40 and $55 every month.

  1. With the auto refill discount , they will match the page plus 39.95 plan. Of course, Verizon coverage is better than ATT

    1. Yes but Att Gophone charges tax when you use auto refill. Its better to use calling Mart to make the payment or go to your local mom and pop store and make the payments there tax free. That's what I do.

  2. I am not sure is this official or not, my local AT&T store gives free smartphone if you purchase $60 plan.

  3. Time to dump Cricket. The $45/$40 plan has more, faster, and more reliable mobile data; better Customer Support; and Hotspot included. Only $5 more per month.

    2. Shills gonna shill.

      Cricket regularly offers great phone discounts (like the recently expired $50 Idol 3, $20 626s and $1 Spree deals), and their group plans offer a lot more data for $40 (10GB) and $50 (unlimited) respectively.

      Their coverage area may be smaller and their speeds throttled, but neither matters if you stay within that (fairly large) coverage area and use Wifi for downloading your 2160p videos.

      In reality, GoPgone is about as good a deal as RingPlus (in the sense that you're paying more for less).

      It also has shills who constantly overvalue its utility, even though their pricing is uncompetitive and data allotments inadequate.

      Anyway, if I was ever actually going to pay that much for unthrottled domestic service (niche international addons aside), I'd just get a $10 Union and put it on Boost Mobile.

      5GB (that grows to 8GB) for $40 is a better (and more future-proof) deal than D'ohPhone's 3GB, and unlimited data for $55 beats the hell out of 6GB.

      There's also US Mobile's $22/2.5GB plan, T-Mobile's $30/5GB plan, Walmart's $50/10GB plan and Metro's $60/unlimited plan, all of which offer more data at the same or lower prices.

      The only thing GoPhone still has going for it is...oh wait, nevermind.

    3. Anybody who claims that GoPhone has good customer support is either deliberately lying or has not called GoPhone customer support recently. AT&T now outsources its GoPhone customer support to a company in the Philippines, and the customer service reps can barely speak English.

    4. Cricket and AT&T GoPhone both run on the AT&T network and neither has roaming. There is no difference in coverage between Cricket and AT&T GoPhone.

      Cricket's unlimited data plan costs $65 with auto-pay.

      AT&T only added 1GB to their GoPhone plans because Verizon Prepaid recently added 1GB to their auto-pay customers.

      Now that Total Wireless offers 5GB of LTE on the Verizon network for $35, Cricket will almost certainly change their plans to compete. They will most likely double the amount of high-speed data on plan.

    5. don't want no cricket bugs. just spray those cricket bugs dead.

    6. the slower Cricket is for the cheap folks who don't want to spend the extra $ per month to be on a faster GoPhone plan.

      they're like the same cheap folks who will only buy regular gas and will absolutely never buy premium gas for their cars. nothing wrong with that.

      cricket = regular (not the fastest)
      gophone = premium (much faster)

      Cricket is the AT&T GoSlow Prepaid Brand.
      GoPhone is the AT&T GoFast Prepaid Brand.

  4. Gophone is better for a single line. Cricket is better for group plans. But I'll bet dollars to donuts cricket will raise data on all plans.

    1. They will raise their THROTTLED DATA. Ever try using your phone's GPS with Cricket? Its S L O W! #Thottleddata

    2. GPS has nothing to do with throttled data. In fact, you can use GPS without any data at all.

    1. cricket is just as slow as starter cable internet. good enough for crappy yet watchable video.

    2. 8Mbps is enough for Netflix and Youtube in 1080p. Do you really need 4K video on a cell phone screen?

    3. Last I heard, the cheapest cable offering was 3mbps.

      Cricket is three time faster.

    6. did a recent data speed test on my gophone that shows 35 Mbps. sometimes it's higher in the 40+ Mbps range. cricket is a slow pokey grandma in comparison in the slow lane.

  7. For At&T GoPhone, do the BYOP work on internet and MMS automatically or does one have to screw around with changing settings on different phone menus? I never seem to have much luck matching instruction menus with menus on actual phones.

    1. That depends on the phone. If it's an iPhone or was originally an AT&T phone it should work out of the box. With other phones you often, but not always, have to change the data settings.

    The plans and data situation are different.

  14. "Ur link is broken"

    I think someone who can't spell "you're" can't be expected to know a lot of things, Dennis.

      LMBO! "Ur" is closer to correct spelling then your "YOU'RE" as the correct spelling is actually "YOUR" not "YOU'RE" = "YOU ARE" so how much can we expect 'YOU' to know?

  15. "The only thing GoPhone still has going for it is...oh wait, nevermind."

    No, not exactly "nevermind". GoPhone offers international texting to 100 countries on its $45 plan. Cricket offers no international texting at all on its $40 plan and only offers texting to 38 countries on its $50 and $60 plans.

    Even though I'm generally pretty happy with Cricket, the international texting and the extra high speed data is a serious consideration for only $5/month for each of my two lines.

    1. Yes, this makes the difference between Cricket and GoPhone smaller, doesn't it? It makes GoPhone much more appealing as a plan on a good network, as opposed to the bad-network plans of MetroPCS, Boost, etc.

      I used to carry an emergency Gophone with me when I had Virgin. Because everywhere had AT&T coverage and Virgin coverage was only in my town and a few rare spots.

    1. you get unlimited 128kbps unlimited data after the gophone plan's 4G LTE data alotment.

      so, for the $45 plan, you get 3gb of 4G LTE data and then afterwards is unlimited 128kbps data for the rest of the month.

    2. Also; unused high speed date rolls over for the next renewal period before the unlimited 128 kbps data kciks in

  18. I just noticed that GoPhone has a $2/day plan with smartphone data at $1 for 100MB. I do have a few questions

    Is the $2 charged everyday or only on days a call is made or a text sent?

    Is the $2 charged when data is used?

    How long before the account expires if a call isn't made or text sent?

    Can incoming texts be blocked to avoid the $2 charge?

      "The way the $2/day plan works is:

      You don't buy the $2 unlimited t&T pass. Any day you make or answer a call or sent a text you will automatically be charged $2. Incoming texts don't trigger the $2 charge so they are free.

      If you want data you do need to buy a data pass at paygonline.com or by calling 611. The data pass doesn't auto renew, you have to buy a new one as needed when you use up the 200 MB or the pass expires. That makes it rather inconvenient as a substitute for a monthly plan. It's best suited for people who only need data occasionally such as travelers who need data for a short time in areas where their main carrier doesn't provide service."

      Your account expires and you lose the phone number 60 days after you fail to add a top-up when due.

    1. GPS doesn't require data at all. Non-activated phones and standalone sat-nav devices with no cellular capability can connect to GPS satellites to find your location. They will connect faster it the can download orbital data (aka the almanac) using a WiFi or the cellular network.

      To meet e911 requirements operators must allow even inactive phones or phones on voice only plans to download GPS orbital data.
