    Just Ported Ib

    I just Ported a line over from Cricket to the AT&T prepaid unlimited plan. Two things I have noticed. AT&T does not tell you how much data you are using. On the web portal it just says unlimited. Second it looks like AT&T blocks which band you are on. Using LTE discovery or Network Cell info the band is not displayed. It works on Cricket.

    True with unlimited data, but I have no issue seeing the band...

    To get details on usage:

    Goto account history
    select appropriate dates
    leave history type at total usage
    select export to PDF
    scroll to bottom of PDF
    Grand totals for voice, text, data, and any other usage are listed

    As for band usage, on my unlocked iphone in field test mode i can see what i'm connected to.

    ATT will notify you when you are close to reaching their cap data usage for non throttled speeds when there is network traffic otherwise use as much data you need. ATT unlimited prepaid $65 plan reduced to $45 monthly with autopay is probably the best unlimited priced plan in the prepaid realm, only simple mobile has a $45 autopay unlimited plan all others are $50 and higher but include hotspot or other perks. Does ATT throttled speed for video capped at 1.5 mbps cause video buffering and lower resolution play at 240p, 360p, or 480p on YouTube or can 720p resolution be used?

    On the 65 (45) unlimited plan it's totally unlimited with no limit before prioritization, so there is not any notification sent. Video is supposed to stream at 480p. However for some reason it will stream all day at 720p on my unlocked iPhone.

    Do you know what download speeds you are receiving on your unlocked iphone by using fast.com for the speed test?

    They are all over the place, from 1mbps to 50mbps. However the slower speeds are during mid-day when i'm in a very congested location.

    That explains why you can stream YouTube in 720p, are there any extra fees on top of the $45 monthly autopayment besides local taxes?

    Autopay with ATT prepaid can be paid without providing ATT with an autopay registered method such as a credit card or debit card? You are putting funds into your ATT prepaid account before your payment due date with ATT refill cards?

    Yes, exactly... Then on they day it renews, I get a message that says I was charged $0.00. Once you do it a month or two, you figure it out quick.
