AT&T launching a new $65 prepaid plan with 1GB of data October 7 , undercuts Verizon with $15
When you buy that shiny new Android or iOS smartphone from AT&T, you are coughing up $200 for it, but also at least $90 monthly for unlimited talk, text and 2GB of data, which adds up to $2360 over the life of the two-year contract, minus the remaining value in the phone if you sell it afterwards.

Now AT&T is introducing a $65 monthly prepaid plan for its GoPhones, which offers unlimited talk and free texts to over 100 countries, including Canada and Mexico, plus 1GB of data. Not shabby if you are not the YouTube-watching-in-the-subway type. That deal will cost you $1560 over the two years of a typical contract, but you can pop the SIM card into whatever device you want, and most importantly, not be shackled by a contract. 

AT&T's new prepaid plan undercuts the same offering Verizon has by $15, but the rest of the GoPhone plans stay as well - there's the unlimited talk and text for $50, and the unlimited text plus 250 minutes voice for $25, to which you can add a 1GB data package for $25. The $65 prepaid option goes into effect October 7. Any takers?
