    Cool so I am not the only one with this opinion of the L2.

    You can certainly get a Go Phone to replace it. Watch the prices though. If there is a marvelous discount, you need to activate the sim card and probably make at least one call. Then let it rot or whatever you like. Put your sim in phone and enjoy.

    Any of the AT&T-supplied GoPhones rise above the rest?

    My wife has an old analog Motorola StarTac purchased from Cingular years ago that still works well but is being forced off the networks by AT&T is forcing off the networks due to the digital switchover -- so we need to get something more current.

    Any of the phones offered HERE on the GoPhone page have a better reputation for quality?

    I don't mean to start an opinion war; I'm just looking for advice re: good reception, decent voice quality, a good screen, reasonable battery life and a decent build quality.

    Asking a lot, yes?

    I'm not going to say cost doesn't matter, because it is always a consideration, but I'm happy to invest in good quality related to making/receiving calls.

    Don't need camera or video capabilities; I suppose web access would be OK if only to chew up some of the minutes that come with a $100 card as my lovely bride averages whompin' ten minutes a month.

    Below is a list of all the phones on the site; I'm willing to consider the purchase of other phones (unlocked) that would work with the AT&T 25-cents a minute prepaid system.

    Feel free to nicely point me in the correct direction if this question has been hashed to death somewhere else.


    Sony Ericsson J220a (Refurb) - $9.99

    Motorola C139 - $19.99

    Nokia 2610 (Refurb) - $9.99

    Motorola C168i - $39.99

    Samsung A117 - $59.99

    Nokia 2610 - $49.99

    Pantech C3B - $89.99

    Nokia 6102i - $99.99

    Motorola RAZR V3 - $129.99

    At those prices I would go for the N2610 refurb. Cingular refurbs are consistently good and 2610 seems to have good reviews. For $10 what do you have to lose?

    For the same $10 price, the J220a would be a lot less phone. The C168i is good but $40 is way too much. The C139 is really ugly and takes an MIR to get to advertised price.

    Your StarTac outlived mine; mine came from GTE wireless which ultimately became Cingular and since mine was CDMA they wanted to replace it with "newer technology" TDMA. I didn't keep the TDMA StarTac because it would not do text; I moved to Nokia. While completely different from a StarTac, I sort of like the V195 from T-mobile.

    It could be that the 3G is on 2100 MHz instead of 1900/850 MHZ which AT&T uses.

    Why are their rates so high? TMobile ToGo has 1000 minutes for $100 whereas att has 400 minutes for the same amount.

    I'll probably get ATT gophone unless I can find a more affordable plan that has coverage in Puerto Rico, but I'm really looking for a justificaiton for the rates.

    You may also check some RadioShacks, they have some older Cingular branded GoPhones cheap like the Nokia 6030 for 19.99, and the Motorola V190 for 49.99. The V190 is quad band, and is very similar to the V195 except it does NOT have Bluetooth (if it did it would be more awesome). The RF is superb, and the battery lasts a L O N G time, and it uses a mini USB charger (like the Razr) and also has a standard 2.5mm headset jack.

    As far as GoPhone versus T-Mo to go, only th GoPhone plan gives you UNLIMITED mobile 2 mobile and .10 calls, whereas T-Mobile charges you to call and get calls from other T-Mobile subscribers. Also you have the option of PickYourPlan which adds 3000 night/weekend minutes and unlimited nights/weekends on the 69.99 plan. all PYP's 39.99 and above come with unlimited mobile 2 mobile. PYP is basically like month to month service with no overages, and no contract/credit check. Sadly as much as I love T-Mobile post paid, they don't offer any M2M or night/weekend minutes on ToGo. You'd have to move to a FlexPay Plan to get that, but then that isn't a bad deal either.

    Only Verizon sucks in the prepaid department, with InPulse you get hit with a .99 a day useage fee EVEN IF you NEVER turn your phone on or make calls! While they do offer "unlimited nights", even on their easy pay plan they no longer offer unlimited nights/weekends. They do however give you unlimited mobile to mobile to all Verizon numbers with their prepaid.

    Sorry I didn't specify, I was only talking about the pay as you go. In PYP, it does sound like a better buy, but as PAYG, it seems expensive.

I think it will hard to lose peddling them, and the activation kits will surely bring a few bucks too. These days I like more phone, but for a starter/simple phone, the C168i is mighty fine. Pretty sure the sim is blank. Not punched out. The airtime pin is under scratchoff on front of booklet.

    BestBuy has the C168i for $19.99. While the price is higher and you will pay tax, there is no shipping charge if you stop buy a brick-and-mortar store. And the SIM is not punched out, either. Then there is the instant gratification thing...

    Can you update the FAQ to reflect the $0.15/SMS PAYG rate? It took effect yesterday.

    One of the mods reading the thread.

    As to your question, if I understand your scenario:

    CALLER --calls--> POSTPAID AT&T --forwarded--> PREPAID AT&T

    If the caller is on AT&T:
    - the postpaid phone's received call is M2M
    - the postpaid phone's forwarded call is M2M
    - the prepaid phone's received call is M2M

    If the caller is not on AT&T:
    - the postpaid phone's received call is charged minutes
    - the postpaid phone's forwarded call is M2M
    - the prepaid phone's received call is charged minutes
