AT&T is expanding its pre-paid GoPhone service to include a limited number of tablets for the first time. This will allow users with compatible tablets to purchase data time on AT&T's network on a monthly basis.
AT&T has a list of the compatible tablets that can be used by the GoPhone service:
- Asus K005
- Asus (TF300TL) Transformer Pad
- Google Nexus 7
- iPad 3
- iPad Mini
- Lenovo IdeaTab (A2107A
- Pantech Element (P4100)
- Samsung Galaxy Camera (GC100)
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (SGH- I467)
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (SGH-I497)
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (SM-T217T)
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (SM-T217A)
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 (SGH-I597)
Owners of these products must also purchase a $9.99 GoPhone SIM Kit card in order to use the service. Once that's done, they can pre-pay for their tablet data on AT&T's network. For $15 a month, users can access just 250 MB of data, and 100MB of additional data can be purchased for $10 each. For a $30 monthly fee, the data limit goes way up to 3GB, with 500MB more for $10 each. Finally, paying $50 a month gives tablet owners on GoPhone 5GB of data, with each extra GB worth $10.
Assuming your tablet is on AT&T's GoPhone list, is this pre-paid service something you might want to use?
