    Question About $2 Daily Plan

    When you make a phone call, this plan automatically purchases 24 hours of airtime for $2. It's totally automatic.

    However, if you want to use the Internet, you need to sign in to your ATT Prepaid account and purchase 100 MB for $1. Not only does this process take about 8 clicks or so, sometimes it can take about 2 or 3 minutes or more, particularly if it times out because it operates at a much slower speed before you make your purchase.

    Is there an easier way to get on the Internet under this plan? Are there any other alternatives? Does Verizon still offer a similar plan? If so, is it any easier to get on the Internet?

    How long ago was that? I've been on the $2 Daily plan for about 10 years. I've always signed in to buy data, which seems preferable to calling in.


    here's more information about the plan - https://www.att.com/shop/wireless/pl...ku4940399.html
    That webpage is wrong. The data package expires 24 hours after purchase, not on midnight of the next day. They changed it 2 or 3 years ago.

    Thanks, october262. I tried the 611 number yesterday and it is easier. Also, I don't run into the slow internet/data speed issue.

    Where did you get the #2 commands? They work but the voice prompts have changed and they're now a little different.

    Why would is matter which phone you're using? Wouldn't the key sequence be the same?

    I think the new key sequence is #3, #1, #2, but I haven't tested it out yet.
