AT&T's $60 per month GoPhone prepaid service offers unlimted talk and text
When you think of prepaid services, big names like Metro PCS, Boost Mobile, or Virgin Mobile may pop up. This past year we've seen a substantial growth on prepaid services with a bunch of providers offering unlimited plans that include talk, text, and web access. AT&T may not have aggressively attacked this sector because they make more money and focus their attention on post paid customers. Their new GoPhone Prepaid Service is going for $60 per month for only unlimited talk and messaging. Undoubtedly the high cost has its reason – specifically that AT&T's network is more widespread than other prepaid carriers. One good thing to come out of it is that calls placed to Canada and Mexico are included. So if you require a stellar network coverage to consider going the no contract route, then you may want to see how AT&T's new plan might fit your needs.

The one thing that sucks is that even though it is unlimited you will still get that annoying text after every call that will say, your last transaction cost $0.00, ...

The only customers I could see this attracting are prepaid customers who have no coverage in their areas other than At&t and Verizon. Will At&t still block prepaid users on this plan from roaming?

stellar network coverage? ha. ok. exept the fact that they are behind vzw/alltel and sprint in just about every area according to that last jdpower study. so its "ok network coverage at full pricing!" :) at least sprint and tmobile give you discounted pricing for their smaller networks.

I'd love for them to build out their network more. They offer good service, if only it was more far reaching.
