AT&T Wireless Informative - ATT Go Phone Pick Your Plan Review
I have Go-phone Pick Your Plan 300 min since 4/09. Signed up at AT&T store and sales person set up an unlocked Motorola K1 KRAZR I already had with a new sim card/phone number. Plan cost $39.99 ($44.04 after all surcharges) charged to my credit card at the beginning of each cell phone service month. I can call/be called by/speak with anyone with AT&T wireless, anytime for free (up to 500 minutes total). Sat/Sun are free to anyone (up to 500 min total). Daytime calls during the week to non-ATT people are billed at $0.133/min in 1 minute increments starting when the dialed number begins to ring (but no charge if no answer - but getting someone's voice mail counts as an answer). Long distance is free except for $0.133/min for daytime calls to non-ATT people during the week. I specifically disabled sending/receiving text messages. I rolled over $32.00 after the first month, as I primarily speak to people with AT&T during the day and I save the rest for nights/weekends. After I have accumulated nearly $250 (the limit) in roll-over, I plan to take the $3.99/month International Calling Plan and let my wife use up the accumulated rollover calling her parents in Ukraine. Only thing I don't like about this account is that checking your own voice mail is $0.133/min if you do it from your cell phone. Checking your voice mail from a land line does not cost anything. Go figure.
Note that I have not been charged $1/day. I was charged a E911 fee during the middle of the month ($0.50 in Indiana is deducted from my balance) as stated in the go-phone program description. I have had no surprises so far (other than the voicemail from my phone charge) and have had no need to contact AT&T customer service (so I can't comment on that).
