    GoPhone vs. AT&T Postpaid Unlimited Pricing

    Is AT&T postpaid now actually less expensive that GoPhone for unlimited service?

    The following is AT&T postpaid's pricing (Number of lines, price):

    AT&T Choice:
    1: $60
    2: $115
    3: $135
    4: $155
    5: $175
    6: $195
    7: $215
    8: $235
    9: $255
    10: $275

    AT&T Plus:
    1: $90
    2: $145
    3: $165
    4: $185
    5: $205
    6: $225
    7: $245
    8: $265
    9: $285
    10: $305

    Effectively, with multiline discounts, you can get unlimited data, talk and text directly with AT&T postpaid service for about $30 per month, per line. How is GoPhone competitive with that?

    Even with additional taxes, $30 per month for unlimited high speed data, voice and text on the postpaid service of AT&T is hard for GoPhone -- or even any MVNO -- to beat in value or cost.

    For our multi line account, post paid unlimited with hotspot (Plus plan) with taxes is the cheaper option. Plus we have the added bonus of monthly credit for 3 iphones from different AT&T promotions over the last year. Calculate the cost for each based on the number of lines & usage to see which plan is best for you. For some the $30 Cricket plan is more than enough cell service.

    Only paying $20 for additional lines 3-10 for Unlimited Plus seems like a steal! Do these plans require a contract or has AT&T eliminated contracts?

    No contract is required for post paid AT&T. An ETF applies with credits for new phones which is the new version of the contract.

    I personally don't like the pricing structure as people with only 1 or 2 lines are almost penalized for not having more lines.
    $145 for 2 lines is crazy (plus taxes and fees), even if I used my 23% FAN Discount.
    The $40 6GB GoPhone plan is a far better option for me.

    If you're interested in unlimited, gophone isn't the best. Heck, even cricket's unlimited plan is better than the gophone one

    Right, but AT&T's new postpaid unlimited plan is even better than most GoPhone and MVNO NON-unlimited plans, considering you can get AT&T postpaid service with multiline discounts for $30/month.

    Aren't the taxes higher with postpaid than they are on GoPhone? This would drive the cost up more on the postpaid service.

    The taxes are higher but the total cost for me including AT&T post paid taxes is cheaper for the number of lines and service than Go Phone or Cricket. AT&T is providing monthly credit for 3 iphones which would be an upfront out of pocket cost with prepaid.

    You bought three insanely over-priced phones, but the promotions lower your total cost from insanely over-priced to extremely over-priced. How delightful.

    You make the assumption every household has a tribe of family members and every one of them needs unlimited data.

    It would cost me about 137.00 on a two line plan.

    I can use GoPhone for 103.50 with the second line discount and Calling Mart refills.

    I don't need unlimited so two 6GB lines would cost about 76.50 which is a big difference.

    It all depends on your situation and needs.

    Not really. My postpaid bill is cheaper than prepaid which is delightful. The 3 phones overprices phones are free which delightful.

    Prepaid multi line plans are not always cheaper with prepaid.

    If AT&T, T Mobile and Verizon are giving a monthly credit for the phone, how is $0.00 paid for the phone overpriced?

    For my my 5 lines, AT&T and T Mobile are cheaper than prepaid. The cost paradigm has shifted between prepaid and post paid based on the number of lines for the plan.
