Prepaid Podcast, October 2009 — Episode 12

Once again there were many developments in the prepaid wireless world, and we’re going to run them down. AT&T made a bold move that could turn some attention their way. Plus, another company that has an unlimited plan just made things a little sweeter.

Highlights include:

AT&T added an unlimited GoPhone plan. Well, really, they just improved the price on it. Before it was $3 per day and didn’t include messaging. The new plan includes both unlimited voice and text, and costs $60 for the whole month. It’s not as comprehensive or as cheap as other prepaid unlimited offers, but clearly AT&T is leveraging its brand name and its network.

Page Plus added to its stable by re-introducing their first Talk n Text plan. Over the summer they upgraded the original plan to unlimited talk, text, and 20 MB of data for $40. Now they’ve added a $30 option, which includes 1,200 minutes, 1,200 messages, and 50MB of data. The company now has two deals similar, though not identical, those offered by Straight Talk.
