    Just got a text from AT&T for my go phone plan. I pay $60.00/month, but get $5.00 back since I use auto pay. I almost never use all my data, but if I did, it's nice to know that I would at least have data to check emails, etc.

    Hmmm, wonder if this will carry over to their postpaid plans as well. Going to throttled "unlimited" service across the board would be a major change for AT&T, since it basically does away with overage charges (or on GoPhone plans, requiring customers to purchase a bloc of data when they go over their monthly cap).

    I used an AT&T GoPhone plan for years before switching to T-Mobile when I bought my first iPhone. Their stingy data allotments and ridiculously high prices for additional data blocs at that time gave me plenty of reason to change carriers.

    Things are a lot more competitive now, and if AT&T now offers 2.5 GB 4G/LTE and unlimited throttled data for $60/month, that cuts very close to T-Mobile's $60/month plan that offers 3 GB of 4G/LTE data on a less extensive network. Since I don't use a lot of voice minutes, T-Mobile's $30 prepaid plan with 5 GB 4G/:TE data and 100 voice minutes still works great for me, and I've yet to see anything comparable from competitors.
