If you have a great number of immediate or extended family that all need cell phones, then you already know that it can get expensive very quickly. Maybe you and a few friends would all like to get smartphones on a network with very reliable coverage, but are unable to afford anything over $55 per month. In these situations, pay as you go services are very viable options that some individuals forget about. One example of these service is AT&T’s GoPhone service. Let’s use an example where a family of four each needs a phone.
$45/month. will get you unlimited talk, text and 3GB of data per month. Enrolling in auto pay brings that down to $40/month. The multi-line discount kicks in for the remaining lines, each starting at $45/month and discounting $5, $10 and $15 off of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th line.
After all of the discounts are applied, the monthly total for 4 lines with unlimited talk, unlimited text (including to Mexico & Canada) and 3GB of data each (including roll over of any unused data) is $145. The multi-line discount can be applied to a total of 5 lines for personal use and 10 lines for business use, making it a great option for families and small businesses alike.
It’s not easy to find a deal with this much data per line, so the GoPhone service is a pretty good deal. Although the $145/month does not include the price of a phone, thankfully there’s currently a Buy One AT&T GoPhone, Get One Free promotion occurring.
