The plans allow customers to add up to 10 devices to a single data plan with unlimited talk and text as well

AT&T is following in the footsteps of Verizon by unveiling Mobile Share plans, which offers customers another choice in the way of data, talk and text.

AT&T's Mobile Share plans aim to allow customers to share a single plate of data across various devices like smartphones and tablets. Unlimited talk and text are added to that chunk of data as well.

The idea behind the new plans is to give customers better control over what device they choose to use with their data bucket, and how they choose to use it. These plans consolidate data and give customers the option to use their one large chunk of data on any mobile device.

“We offer customers a broad choice and the best lineup of plans, now enhanced by Mobile Share,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility. “With these new plans, the more you share, the more you save. They’ll be a good fit for a variety of new and existing customers. But if customers want to stay on their current plan or choose from our existing plans, they can do that, too. It’s their choice. 

“Today we think of people’s smartphones and tablets sharing a bucket of data. But in the future we’ll see health care monitors, connected cars, security systems and other devices in the home all connected to the mobile Internet,” said Christopher. “Our Mobile Share plans are simple, easy and a great value for individuals or families with multiple mobile Internet devices.”

Customers can choose one of the new Mobile Share plans without having to sign a contract extension, but they are not required to switch to one of these plans. For those that do want to switch, all they have to do is choose how much data they want per month and tie up to 10 devices (one must be a smartphone) to their new Mobile Share plan. Each Mobile Share plan includes unlimited domestic calls and texts for smartphones or basic messaging phones. They also include tethering.

Here is the pricing table for Mobile Share plans:


The new Mobile Share plans will be available in late August.

Just last month, Verizon revealed its "Share Everything" plans, which is basically the same exact idea as AT&T's Mobile Share plans. Customers can purchase "buckets" of data and add various mobile devices to the plan with unlimited talk and text.

wow most customers in the UK pay between £20-£40 an month for the Full contract with data (with 250mb-2gb allowance in that price, some are unlimited data as well) all UK providers charge £5 here normally for data (some charge £5-10 for the 1-2GB+ extra allowance)

or unlimited data plans with Three 2000 mins, 5000 text, unlimited data [with 5 day heavy use punishment traffic management to slow the users who abuse the unlimited data a lot](£26/1m sim only or £29-£38/24m with most phones free, monthly price depends on the phone picked)

T-mobile 2000 mins unlimited text {most likely 5000 text} and cida unlimited data [when i was on t-mobile i had to use an VPN to bypass the traffic shapers as youtube would keep under buffering] (£26/1m or £36/24m with most phones free)

or PAYG Gifgaff(/o2) starting from £15 (cida unlimited there seems to be an 1GB an day auto Ban limit as they cant detect tethering so if you use over 1GB in an day they place an Data bar on the account as they think your tethering)
Three PAYG All you can eat for £15, 300 mins 3000 text unlimited data {with same traffic management as contract} if they detect tethering they just warn you or cut you off [depends if its an Three branded mobile or not] (turn phone off and on restores the internet)
