AT&T lowering some GoPhone plan pricing this weekend, adding bundled data option

Chris Ziegler

Prepaid wireless plans are seeing a resurgence in popularity lately, due in part to the fact that top-tier carriers like Verizon are getting with the program and adding prepaid smartphones into the mix. AT&T is looking to get a little more competitive with its GoPhone brand this weekend, it seems, taking a gander at this chart we've obtained that shows a few options actually decreasing in price -- an absolute rarity for this business. Notably, the unlimited daily talk and text plan will be dropping from $3 to $2, and the per-minute "simple plan" will be dropping from 25 cents to 10 cents. The 1MB and 100MB data add-ons remain the same at $4.99 and $19.99, but there'll also be a new $75 unlimited talk and text plan that bundles 200MB of data into the mix with additional kilobytes charged at one cent each. Starting to make postpaid look a little lame, isn't it? Look for it all to go into effect this Sunday, October 3.
