    Moving from H2O to AT&T - $300 annual 8GB

    I'm currently at H2O on $27 (plus some change for tax) per month for 6GB.

    I now see where AT&T has an 8GP plan for $25 if I prepay the whole year. It's only a couple bucks difference and I never get near my data cap anyhow.

    Worth switching?

    Probably. You'd get more LTE, some rollover, and roaming in Canada and Mexico.

    You can read more about my experience starting at https://www.howardforums.com/showthr...1#post17141011 if you're interested.

    Thanks. Sounds like more of a struggle than it's worth to save ~$24/year.

    It would only be worth it if more LTE, some rollover, and roaming in Canada and Mexico has value to you.

    Agree. I wouldn't commit to pay up front one full year of service, with no possibility of refunds if I have/want to cancel earlier, just to save ~$24.

    I'll repeat what I said before. It would only be worth it if more LTE, some rollover, and roaming in Canada and Mexico has value to you.

    Only commit to a year if the prices are good enough that you don't feel trapped. Where if you leave early you still saved money compared to where you were.

    I'm on a year plan on another carrier that has already saved money even if I forgo the remaining portion of the year.
    iPhone 12 Pro is my current primary phone. Not yet signed up for 5G.

    Paying a year in advance almost defeats the purpose of prepaid. It becomes a 1 year commitment.

    If somebody isn't ready to make a 1 year commitment, then they shouldn't.

    If somebody IS ready, and if it will save significant money, they SHOULD.

    I see your point but another purpose of prepaid is to pay less per month. This still remains the case.
