AT&T tosses another GB of data onto its GoPhone pre-paid plans
Both plans offer customers unlimited talk and text, and rollover data. This means that any unused data from the current month is available for use during the next month. And if subscribers opt in to Auto Refill (which automatically dips into a checking account, or runs a credit card or debit card for the amount of next month's service) they will save $5 a month. That brings the monthly cost of these two tiers down to $40 and $55.
With Auto Refill, the plans undercut Big Red's new rates. Verizon's $45 and $60 pre-paid tiers come with 3GB and 6GB of data, respectively. But those figures for Verizon customers include Auto Pay (similar to AT&T's Auto Refill). If Verizon pre-paid subscribers don't agree to the automatic money transfer each month, they lose 1GB of data on their plans.
The pre-paid arena is becoming quite competitive as many wireless subscribers are turning to this option. If you're interested in AT&T's pre-paid service, go to AT&T.com.
