    Two new plans $30 & $40

    Well the only thing that’s new is more data. Starting Nov 20th $30 plan will include 5gb and $40 is $15gb.

    If they are allowed to be included in the multi-line discount, there is no reason not to switch from the current $35 and $45/$50 plans to these.

    I wonder why they just didn't update the $35 ($30 w/autopay) and $50 ($40 w/autopay) data allowances instead of creating more plans.

    No HD streaming on these. Guess I'm sticking with the 8 GB for $40 (actual price I'm paying 37.20).

    Not too far off from T-Mobile's $25 5GB plan.

    I wonder if 5G access is included?

    A very quick check at https://www.att.com/prepaid/ shows no. 5G wasn't listed as a feature of these limited plans.
    iPhone 12 Pro is my current primary phone. Not yet signed up for 5G.

    Do the new $30/$40 plans include autopay and multiline discounts?

    ATT's site says:
    $10-$20 off per line per month
    Req’s min $30 phone plan & enrollment in Family account.

    Note, according to ATT's prepaid site, the $30 and $40 price is with Autopay, so yes, autopay is specifically supported on these plans.

    Now that I have a 5G compatible phone, this $40 plan doesn't quite seem as good. Even though I generally don't have a problem with keeping under 8GB/month (I'm on a MVNO right now with 5GB, and struggle to keep under that).

    Where are you seeing that information? I cannot find any reference to the new plans yet.

    At this moment, only the old $30 ($35) and $40 ($50) plans are the ones described.

    OP said new $30 plan w/5GB and $40 plan w/15GB.

    Guess right. But family plans say $30 and above.

    At&t Prepaid just updated their webpage

    https://www.att.com/prepaid/plans/

    It looks like the new $30 plan replaces the old $35/30 with autopay plan. The $40 plan replaces the old $50/40 with autopay plans. They don't mention any autopay discounts, but nothing says that the plans do not qualify for the multiline discount.

    looking on walmarts site I see they have hotspot included for these plans now too up to the allocated data.

    No autopay discount that I can tell

    Yep. They also show in OLAM in the list of plans available to change to. No autopay discount and no explicit mention that they can get the multi-line discount (they should as both are greater than the $30 minimum required).

    What I find stupid is that the created "new" plans, instead of just increasing the data allowances for the existing $30 and $40 plans, like they did recently for the $30 plan from 1GB to 2GB.

    I also find strange the fact the the old $40 ($50) and $30 ($35) plan choices are still available in OLAM to switch to. I would have expect those to be no longer available. What's the point of keeping them?

    Edit: As mentioned by another poster earlier, no HD Stream Saver available in these new plans. (Not that I take advantage of that feature). This could be one of the reasons to create "new" plans.

    Edit 2: This could be just a temporary oversight, but these new plans are NOT listed as options in the multi-plan calculator HERE. This would be a big disincentive to switch to these plan for many, including myself.

    It's also in the same range as Verizon's 5GB prepaid plan if you stick around long enough (loyalty discount is $5 off after 3 months, $5 more off after 9 months) and add autopay. When all is said and done, it's $25, includes 5G Nationwide (aka everything but UWB). Verizon did away with group/family discounting on these plans when they redid them a few months ago, so I wonder if AT&T is doing that, too.

    In terms of the Verizon plan and 5G Nationwide, those speeds seem about like what I was getting with LTE, but should handle congestion better. I'm pretty happy with it, but T-Mobile has n41 running in my area, treats their prepaid with higher priority, and the plan will grow a bit over time, so I might switch once I use up my balance.

    I'm hoping things stay competitive like this at the $25-$35 space...it's kind of fun.

    I might be interested in this.

    A few questions:

    - If I start with the 5GB $30 plan, I assume I can easily upgrade to the 15GB $40 plan, if that becomes necessary. The 8GB $300/year plan might be interesting, although it's way too much upfront price I want to commit without testing things out first.

    - Any recommendation for a cheap phone that covers a wide variety of bands? According to the information I see, the tower closest to the location I will be using this at uses bands 12, 14, 17, and 66 - any recommendations for any cheap phone (ebay) that would cover all of these bands? I will need hotspot capabilities, but I assume that won't be an issue since the plan comes with that.

    - Will a Cricket branded phone work with AT&T Prepaid?
