GoPhone $30 Plan Now Eligible For Multi Line Discounts

GoPhone Multi-Line Discount

Back in August, AT&T's GoPhone prepaid brand started offering multi-line discounts. The discounts start at $5 for the second line and go up from there:

  • The second line gets $5 off
  • The third line gets $10 off for a total discount of $15 for 3 lines
  • The fourth line gets $15 off for a total discount of $30 for 4 lines
  • The fifth line gets $20 off for a total discount of $50 for 5 lines
The first line, and only the first line, of a multi-line account is also eligible for a $5 auto-pay discount.

When GoPhone multi-line discounts were launched they were only available with the GoPhone $45 and $60 plans. Users of the $30 GoPhone plan, which includes unlimited voice and messaging but no data, were not eligible to be part of a multi-line plan. AT&T quietly rectified that omission sometime in the last few days and $30 plan users can now share in the multi-line savings. The $30 plan can be a good fit for some users, like a senior with a flip phone or a child that you don't want to have unlimited access to data.  If you only need a bit of data, a 250 MB for $5 add-on is available. 

Here's where the $30 plan fits into the GoPhone line-up:

  • $25/90 days PayGo - 25¢/minute, 20¢/SMS or MMS
  • $2/Day Plan - unlimited voice and messaging, no included data, $2 only charged on days the phone is used to make or receive a voice call or send a text. Add-on data available on demand at $1 for 100 MB good for one day.
  • $30 Monthly Plan - unlimited voice and messaging, no included data, add-on data $5/250 MB
  • $45 Monthly Plan - unlimited voice, messaging and data, first 4 GB/month at high speed.
  • $60 Monthly Plan - unlimited voice, messaging and data, first 8 GB/month at high speed.
For more about GoPhone including additional plan details see our Prepaid Operator Profile: AT&T GoPhone.

Hat-tip to Jeff Moore of Wave7 Research for finding the change on the AT&T site and sharing it with me.

  1. I wonder if cricket will get more data now to "compete" with att's gophones. Or is 2.5gb enough for $35 over 4gb for $40?

  2. If the Cricket 5 line $100 discount is still available, I see that Cricket is the winner.

    But then the next question may tell us why gophone over cricket.

    What is the advantage of Gophone over cricket?

    Is there taxes and fees included with gophone?
    Is there roaming with gophone?
    Is there data always on with gophone?

    What else am I missing that might put Gophone over Cricket?

    1. Gophone has full speed data. Thats the only advantage.

      Delete
    2. "only" advantage in a mostly data only market? May want to rethink that. Oh and tethering has saved me a few times, totally negating cricket's so called savings.

  3. Positives of GoPhone over cricket. Higher network priority, Tethering, Rollover Data, includes more countries to text internationally and as Jon Vitrano mentioned, full data speed.

    Im my opinion, the network priority is noticeable,especially in areas where the network is crowded.

    1. Where's your proof of "higher network priority"?

  4. Jon not the only advantage.

  5. I am hope that Verizon Preaid will match this offer.

  6. Add more data! People want more data or take $5 off the price of each plan. This is stupid. Verizon prepaid $50/5G,cricket $50/8G,more data!! !!

    1. If you had followed our advice to, "For more about GoPhone including additional plan details see our Prepaid Operator Profile: AT&T GoPhone" you would know that the $60 GoPhone plan works in Mexico and Canada and the other GoPhone plans do not work outside the US.

    2. Feeling a little testy, Dennis?

  8. So its either 40 x 5 =200 -100= 100/ 5=20 for Cricket

    Or 30 × 5= 150 -50= 100/5=20 for Gophone

    1. But you get 2.5 gb data with a throttled cap on the Cricket Wireless plan.

      Delete
    2. According to the article Go phone would be 150-55 if you include autopay discount.
      Does Cricket offer similar autopay discount?

      Delete
    3. Cricket's auto-pay discount is only available with single lines. The first line of a multi-line plan is not eligible for an auto pay discount.

  9. Historically, (over the past year) ATT has been launching data increases,etc on cricket first, then Go phone later. Now all of a sudden, they seem to be focusing on Gophone, bringing them up to speed, and adding a few perks. Why the switch?

  10. Cricket has gotten unlimited plus 1g on $30 plan and 8g on $40 plan. The only plan that's stuck is the basic plan at 2.5gb

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Cricket's $40 plan has 2.5 GB. The 8 GB plan is $50

      Delete
  11. Instead of multi line discount, I wish the $30 plan came with a data allowance. Is it 1GB too much to ask?
    Having to pay $5 extra per 250MB is absurd.

  12. GoPhone and Cricket need VoLTE/Wi-Fi calling, until then MetroPCS is the best bang for your buck.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I have Cricket and have never missed not having Wifi calling (I try to avoid wifi now due to the huge hassle of the hard to use login screens, many of them unnecessary, and the terrible slow speed so many have). It's a lot easier for me to do voice over the cell phone lines.

      VolTE I understand does give higher voice quality.

      There is still a big coverage difference between Cricket and MetroPCS, and that is a very important consideration for me over higher quality voice calls and the ability to use voice over difficult to log into wifi hubs.

  13. The final prepaid market place will merge with post-paid. They will do that prepaid will go over post-paid.

  14. I don't understand why everyone on here is trying to figure out if Cricket or GoPhone has more data for the money when you can now get free AT&T LTE, which is probably faster than Cricket LTE, from FreedomPop. If the 600MB/month you get for free isn't enough, just get a second sim and then you have 1.2GB/month for free. If you really want to go nuts, you could grab ten sims and enjoy 6GB/month for free. You'll need a second debit or credit card to get more than five sims. Considering how easily you can buy a prepaid debit card at most stores these days that shouldn't be a problem. Of course, most of us already have more than one card in our wallet so you most likely already have everything you need to get 6GB of free LTE on the AT&T network every month.

    1. I have 800 sims and I have virtually unlimited data for free. Screw the system! 😀

    2. Freedompop baby! I have an Att iPhone 6 on freedompop's new LTE sim card on the Att network. No Need to unlock the phone either. I have 200 talk minutes, 500 text and 200 Mb of data. I did most of the promotions for free data so I have 1.2G of LTE data. All for $0/month! ¡ Freedompop baby! #Att #4GLTE

    3. Actually, you have access to a lot more than 200 minutes or 500 texts if you use a free VoIP calling and messaging app. Most VoIP apps work better than FreedomPop's own calling app. Google voice with the Google Hangouts app for VoIP calling is a popular option but not the only option. There are also countless free texting and messaging apps in the App and Play stores. There's really no reason to use or even install the FreedomPop calling app. All you need to worry about is how much data you have available. As long as you have data, you can call and text for free.

    4. you can use Whatsapp(you'll have get them to verify/whitelist your freedompop number),TextNow,Google voice/Hangouts and many more with Freedompop to make calls and text messages. Once again First step is to DOWNGRADE your plan to the Basic plan.

      Delete
  15. Tempted to try Freedompop but the horror stories due to potential billing problems/credit card charges highlighted in various places online scares me. Are they mostly people who don't know how Freedompop works or are the concerns legit?

    1. AS soon as your Freedompop sim card is activated just downgrade to the totally free plan.(step by step video on youtube on how to do that). you wont get charge a thing. remember one you downgrade you will receive 200 talk, 500 text and 200mb of data.if you do the special offers you can get up to 2 Gigs of data each month for FREE!!!

      Delete
    2. The best way to enjoy FreedomPop with peace of mind is probably to use a virtual credit card number from your bank or credit card company, if they offer it, and then either restrict the amount of funds that virtual number has access to or just cancel it all together after you use it on FreedomPop. Another option is to buy a reloadable prepaid debit card (not a gift card) from a store and use that card for FreedomPop. You can also grab more than one prepaid card so you can activate and use more than five FreedomPop sims.

  16. Will the gophone $30 plan include always-on data anytime soon?
