AT&T adds tablets to prepaid GoPhone service


Over the past year, tablets have gained a stronger footing on carriers, so much so that AT&T is doing something that’s previously unheard of. AT&T is now allowing select tablets to access its prepaid GoPhone service. Rather than signing a contract or having to pay for a traditional off-contract plan, AT&T is letting customers purchase data on a prepaid monthly basis. The selection of compatible tablets is limited, but the list is fairly lengthy:

  • 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)

Per usual, those who want to access the service will need to purchase a $10 GoPhone SIM kit. Data prices start at $15 per month for 250MB of data and then head north to 3GB for $30 and top out at 5GB for $50. GoPhone prepaid cards are available at a whole lot of stores so purchasing data should be easy as pie.
