Most of the new plans do offer savings compared to the old versions though, so you’ll spend less money each month even if you’re still on a contract.Your contract will not be extended when you switch to a new Mobile Share Value plan.All plans include access to AT&T’s nationwide Wi-Fi network at no additional charge.
“Our new no contract option lets customers add a smartphone to the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network at a lower monthly cost.
Customers want great value and a premium network – and now they can save more and get unlimited talk, text and data to share.” The new Mobile Share Value plans make it easy for customers to manage their data without needing to keep track of multiple plans.
This means we’ve had a good amount of time to get familiar with AT&T’s plans so we can give you all the details you need to find one that works for you.
If you need a lot of data, the AT&T Unlimited &More or Prepaid Unlimited plans may be the right choice for you.
The new plan is the same, but payments are spread out over 26 months instead of 20 and upgrades can be had every 18 months.
This is a decent option for people who upgrade less frequently — phones cost the same amount but spreading payments across more time obviously results in lower monthly payments.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. It will be available to consumers for up to four smartphones, and to select small business customers, who may provide employees with up to six company-owned devices.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. The new plan will make monthly smartphone payments even lower than the existing AT&T Next option, by spreading payments over 26 months and giving eligible customers a way to get a new smartphone after 18 monthly payments for no down payment, no upgrade fee, no activation fee and no financing fee.“With our new Mobile Share Value Plans, customers don’t have to compromise,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility.While the prices of what are likely the most popular Mobile Share plans remain unchanged, they will still drop by per device each month as soon as your current contract expires.If you’re on an AT&T Next plan or if you aren’t currently on a contract, your service cost will drop by per device immediately.If you are on an old plan though, we highly recommend you call or go online this coming Sunday when the plans become available and switch immediately.There are a few instances where prices go up on these new plans so you’ll have to crunch some numbers, but the overwhelming majority of scenarios will see savings.They don’t quite provide value that approaches some other offerings out there, but those options also don’t provide the coverage and data speeds afforded by AT&T’s network.So what do these new plan prices look like, exactly?
