    NEW: AT&T PREPAID 8GB 3-month $99

    AT&T Prepay has a $33/mo 8GB plan when you pay 3 months at a time it's available online on their website. Looks like existing customers can sign up with this new plan. Look out for taxes and fees.

    For stand alone $50/mo 8GB lines ($40 with Autopay) is a nice alternative to save few bucks. Current 8GB lines as part of multi-line can already get it down to $35/mo, and you may even lose the multi-line discount in the other line(s) too. Not worth it IMO.

    "Online only" offer, but I don't see how to switch to this plan in OLAM, so not sure it is available to existing customers

    The 3 mo plan is OK. Maybe temporary for a single line. There are better options like 12 mo plan for $25 or getting the Walmart 25 GB plan (especially if you can multi-line).

    The T+C doesn't state that the plan Requires New Activation like the 12 mo plan does. However, as stated above, the 3 mo isn't shown as an option under Plans so there's no option to switch into it.

    This is only ok for a single line. I’m on a multi line account with autopay discount and multi line discount.

    I am on the Walmart plan; single line. Would I loose my 17gb additional data if I move to this 3 month plan?

    Yes, you will lose your 17GB Walmart bonus data. Here it is directly from the AT&T Prepaid / Walmart site:

    How long will I keep receiving the bonus data on this plan?

    You will receive the 17GB of bonus data each month that you successfully renew your $50 8GB plan.

    They have now added a 6 month plan for $180 or $30 per month.

    I wonder what the push is for these multi-month plans?

    Lessen churn? Emulating the Mint Mobile/Tracfone model?

    I don't think it is an either. Probably a both.

    Plusses and minuses of a long plan. Due to other reasons, wanted to switch my Red Pocket plan from the ATT network to the Verizon network. Apparently, can't switch networks anymore without losing the rest of the year's plan, so they benefited there.
    iPhone 11 is my current primary phone. But I have more phones than lines. Back to only Prepaid with the changes in the economy.

    AT&T says this if you click on the "See details" link before you buy ...

    ... either the 3-month plan
    Plan available online only. Service available for 90 days upon first payment of $99. Plan renews every 30 days for 3 renewal periods. The $99 advance payment is non-refundable in whole or in part.
    ... or the 12-month plan
    Online offer. Requires new activation. Service available for 360 days upon first payment of $300. Plan renews every 30 days for 12 renewal periods. The $300 advance payment is non-refundable in whole or in part.

    I thought he was talking about Red Pocket not AT&T.

    I was, in this case. But there are always possible problems if you go too long with anyone. The $300 plan sounds good, straight with ATT Prepaid, but is always the problem that, if your needs change early. What if you consistently need more than the 8GB/month, such has hotspotting. Or you move and Verizon would have suited you much better. In my case, with RP, I was only about 4 months into the $100/year plan so I'm not out so much that I have to skip my electricity payment this month I'll probably transition to the cheaper $60/year plan on RP since it IS just for my backup number. 100 minutes/month is fine for that.
