I've noticed with the att go phone plans they have great deals with international calling vs the contract side of att don't. are the data speeds the same? could i port my number over from the contract side to the prepaid side? i also saw for $60 unlimited talk text 2.5gb of data with hotspot capabilities. so whats the catch?:confused::confused:

    Is your contract up? If not, leaving the contract to go with pre paid would require you to pay an ETF on the contract.

    I have a go phone plan on a 5S. Yes, you can port your number to a pre-pay plan. Personally, the difference between the two is that the go-phone plans are very basic plans. They are a sort of "a la carte" plans where you can select and choose certain plans based on your usage and upgrade them accordingly.

    It should be the same speeds. I don't think you can get 5GB on the go phone plans. Here is the link:

    You're restricted to what they offer. 1GB is the max. Anything higher, you'll be going into contract territory. Also, when I went into ATT to get a go phone plan, they offered me some other choices that were not part of the items listed here in this link. They may be able to customize a plan that fits your needs. Go into an ATT Store and inquire.
