AT&T recently announced that it will be introducing new “Mobile Share Value Plans” on December 8, which includes an option for no annual contracts that brings a $15 monthly discount to shared data customers that meet one of four requirements. The requirements are said to include getting a smartphone for no down payment with the “AT&T Next” early upgrade program, bringing a separate off-contract device, purchasing at full retail price, or switching to a new plan after a phone is no longer under a contract. The following was mentioned regarding the topic:
With the ‘No Annual Service Contract’ options, smartphone customers can save $15 a month on Mobile Share Value plans. 2 Customers can receive these monthly savings when they: Get a new smartphone for no down payment with AT&T Next; bring their own smartphone; purchase a smartphone at full retail price; or when their smartphone is no longer under contract and they switch to the new plans. All Mobile Share Value plan customers will benefit from shared data plus unlimited talk and text on their phones. Consumers will have the ability to connect up to 10 devices, including tablets and other wireless devices, while business customers will be able to connect up to 10, 15, 20 or 25 devices, depending on the plan.
For those of you who didn’t know, AT&T ended its traditional voice and data plans in October for new customers in favor of offering Mobile Share plans, which were first introduced the summer of 2012. AT&T’s Mobile Share plans offer unlimited talks and text while providing a pool of data that can be used across multiple devices and include a monthly data cost and a per-device charge that ranges from $10 to $50 based on the type of device and the selected data plan. Data is priced between $20 and $500 for between 300 MB and 50 GB of usage.
