AT&T discontinuing data for pay-as-you-go plans

AT&T GoPhone customers who aren’t on monthly plans received an informative text message yesterday, and users flocked to Howard Forums to report the news. According to the message, starting on April 18th users on the pay-as-you-go 10 cents per minute plan will no longer be able to add data packages to their monthly plans. AT&T has three data add-ons: $5 for 10MB, $15 for 100MB, and $25 for 500MB. Starting on the 18th, they’ll be available only for monthly plan customers. While AT&T didn’t clarify, it does sound as though users can continue paying 1 cent for every 5KB of data used.
