AT&T Add 1GB Data For Seven Days $.99

New option for 1GB data for 7 days for $.99. Very cool!

Ok now something seems wrong on this. I just checked and I can get 1 GB for $0.99 for 7 days but then that would mean 4 GB for $4 a month. What's the catch?

I'm thinking it's a limited time thing.

I have a Nexus 7 with an AT&T account. I don't get this deal when I log into my account on the website. It's only for iPad accounts.

One time deal? As in only this once and then it changes to a monthly plan?

Nobody knows yet what happens since no one has reached the end of the seven days yet.

I bought my iPad on Thursday and signed up for the 3GB deal and the 7 day deal was not there.

No deal like that at my local AT&T store and they are pretty much up on things.

Time to provide some proof for this since most would jump at this opportunity. Until then, ...

Your proof, it's only on the iPad. AT&T are clueless.

She beat me to posting that.

Why would I have posted the thread without knowing it was true? My post was stated as a fact.

Thanks, I will check my Mini when I get home.

Unless nothing needs to be done to get it when you are on your plan/contract, guess this is why AT&T is clueless.

The AT&T store wanted proof. Like I said, this store is pretty much up on things and has been very helpful to me.

I just checked my Mini, my account online, and customer service. This plan is not available to me unless perhaps I have to wait for my next cycle?

If it is just a promotion, who is it available to and when did other folks get their iPad?

Rather strange AT&T would be clueless.

Maybe it is not available to me cause I got my Mini at Friends and Family Pricing for cellular at AT&T for my Mini. Maybe they feel I already got a great enough deal.

99 cents for 1gb is too good to be true. hopefully it isn't a typo of $9.99

That is still way better than 250mb for $14.99 for 30 days.

Typo where? On that person's Mini screenshot?

anyone bought the new plan?

does it include LTE (it is omitted from the pricing pic). is this really a separate plan, not add-on data on top of a required existing plan?

The plan has LTE and everything and the AT&T confirmation email charged only .99 cents.

If this plan stays, my next iPad will be a LTE model.

I was really considering picking up a unlimited sim off ebay, but they're overpriced. I really want a pay per use plan on like for a LTE-iPad, like just for a couple days at a time.

The plans they offer now are useless to me.

AT&T needs to introduce pay-per-day plans. Charge me ~$10 for a week of 2gb data. It would be great for people who take trips every so often. It doesn't even have to be AT&T. Even if VZW does something similar, I'll buy their version of the iPad. If I'm using more, I'd just subscribe to a normal plan or tether off my phone or work mifi.

I signed up for this plan too. Figured there was a catch. I too wish I could purchase blocks is data and use as I see fit without a limited time frame.

I switched from the 2GB plan to this and my confirmation email does not mention it as being one time only.

I am postpaid which this option is not available. Thread is somewhat misleading and I will leave it at that.

Still not sure why AT&T reps I talked to did not know about it.
