Update: You can now get the F160, a quad-band world phone, for just $14.99 shipped!
AT&T is finally making prepaid competitive!
They have lowered the cost of a minute of airtime when you have no plan or contract to just 10 cents a minute! Previously it was 25 cents a minute with no plan!
They have also lowered the cost of the plan that allows for unlimited usage on days that you use the phone from $3/day to just $2/day only on days that you use your phone. Unlimited domestic and international text messaging is free with this plan.
No contract, activation fees, or Social Security number is required to purchase a discounted prepaid phone!
Rollover Balance lets you carry over your unused account balance when you refill before your balance expires!
Refilling with following amounts of money extends your entire balance for:
$15: 30 days
$25: 90 days
$50: 90 days
$60: 90 days
$100: 1 year
If you want to use a prepaid phone many of these phones come with airtime cards to start you off! Or you can use any phone on a regular AT&T plan by just swapping your SIM card!
-AT&T is currently having a promotion for up to a $50 prepaid card with the purchase of a GoPhone! According to the fine print regular AT&T post-paid customers may be able to exchange their prepaid cards for 150 bonus plan minutes!
You can see which phones come with a free prepaid card below. The free prepaid airtime won’t show up in your cart but will ship together with the phone.
1-Add the phone to your cart
2-Click on “Step 2: add a plan” in the pop-up window.
