AT&T GoPhone Announces Two New Promotions for the Holidays

at&t-holiday-promos
With the fast approaching holidays, AT&T GoPhone has decided to give its users more reasons to be jolly. Earlier today, the prepaid brand announced that they will be offering more high-speed data to its customers at no extra charge. Based on the announcement made, customers who decide to renew their $40 and $55 monthly plans (after AutoPay) can get more data automatically. The promotion applies to customers renewing their plans starting Friday.

Under the promotion, customers can get the following:
  • $40 Monthly Plan (after AutoPay) - unlimited talk and text, 4GB of high-speed data, and rollover data
  • $55 Monthly Plan (after AutoPay) - unlimited talk and text, 8GB of high-speed data, and rollover data
The $55 monthly plan (after AutoPay) also comes with unlimited talk and text from the U.S. to Mexico and Canada. The plan also includes talk, text and data usage in Mexico and Canada.

In addition to giving more high-speed data, AT&T GoPhone also has some 4G LTE smartphone deals available. Starting Friday, customers who activate a new line and pay $30 for service will be entitled to a free ZTE Maven 2. They will also be giving a discount on the LG Phoenix 2 to only $49.99 instead of $69.99. This offer starts on Nov. 11. Both the ZTE Maven 2 and LG Phoenix 2 promotion will only be available until Dec. 31st.

  1. With both at&t and Verizon giving such deals for its prepaid plans, it doesn't make much sense to stick with postpaid unless you finance a phone or something.

    1. Phone subsidies are one of the biggest reason. People don't like paying out full price for a high end phone, so they would rather pay less now and pay more later. That has been the staple of contracts for a long time.

    2. also many of the prepaid deals are better than unstable mvnos.

  2. "post-pre-paid" gravy train is running out of steam for the carriers. getting hammered with "taxes" and "fees" ran me off years ago. made me feel like I was being PUNISHED for getting the privilege of a 'billed' account and still paying in advance for service not yet extended to me.

  3. [$55 for 8GB on AT&T VS $45 for 8GB on Cricket Wireless]

    I am surprising because two years ago, AT&T only had 2.5GB for $60 plan while Cricket had $60 for 5GB. The market is developing, good sign.

  4. Is this increasement permanent? Or just for holiday like H2O?

  5. Is this promotion only for current customers or does it include new customers as well?

    1. I'm sure it applies to new customers as well as current ones. The whole point of increasing data is to make the plans more competitive to attract new customers.

  6. Since you labled this a "promotion" is the increase in data permanent or limited time "promotion"? If permanent then it is a plan change/allotment increase?

    What was the old data amount/allotment?

    How long is the rollover data good for?

    1. The data increases are not described by AT&T as a limited time offer.

      Current plans are $45 3 GB, $60 6 GB without autopay, $5 less with.

      Rollover data expires after 30 days. Plan data is used before rollover data.

  7. Also not mentioned: Is tethering / hotspot available, included or extra cost?

    1. Tethering and hotspot is allowed on the current GoPhone $45 and $60 plans so presumably they will still be allowed after the data increase goes into effect Friday.

  8. I think AT&T and Verizon are feeling the pain from T-Mobile and Sprint. You know they don't want to offer more data.

    1. Feeling the pain? They still have the Lion's share of profits and customers

    2. Actually it's to provide a buffer to protect the Post Paid accounts.

  9. Sadly, they're a day late and a dollar short. I'm not giving up my MetroPCS unlimited 4G LTE plan. AT&T and Verizon are greedy.

    1. I'm on Cricket 2.5/$40 plan right now, and Go 4/$45 is a unique offering that fills an empty space in the Cricket/Metro lineup (2.5 or 3/$40 and 8/$50). I'm tempted to switch, especially if there's less data latency from proxying (<100msec ping vs 300msec ping is much more more useful than 8Mbps+ bandwidth vs 4Mbps). I'm more inclined to call people who regularly need 8-17+ GB "greedy", but that's your call.

  10. Metro PCS $50/8G of data. $60/Unlimited data. like I've said before Auto pay is not truly $5 off because they charge you sales TAX!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Note: Customers are only eligible for the increase if they are signed up for AutoPay.

    1. I think CNet is misinterperting the AT&T press release which says:

      "...if you’re on the $55 (with AutoPay) monthly plan, now you get 8GB of high-speed data – a 33% increase. If you have the $40 (with AutoPay) monthly plan, now you get 4GB of high-speed data – also a 33% increase. Either way, this is on top of unlimited talk and text and rollover data!... First mo. $45/$60. Get $5/mo. discount after enrolling in AutoPay."

  12. Just wondering if cricket will not only up their data allotment.. but hopefully add rollover data. They kind of have to at this point right??

    1. Cricket doesn't have to do anything. It is 100% part of AT&T... just like go phone. It all depends on AT&T business strategy.

      Saying that Cricket has to do something because go phone does is exactly like saying that Buick has to do something because Cadillac does.

  13. Is GoPhone coverage better than H2O, or its just the same? Also is any other ATT mvno that offer tethering?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Should be the same. GoPhone doesn't get any roaming.
