AT&T makes changes to GoPhone service
AT&T has announced some changes to its prepaid GoPhone service that definitely won't make existing customers happy. The no contract, no credit check prepaid service will continue to operate, but AT&T is eliminating several of the more affordable data plan options for GoPhone customers on June 20.
Currently, GoPhone has a $25 monthly plan that includes unlimited text messages, 250 voice minutes, and the option of adding 50 MB of data for an additional five dollars per month. AT&T is eliminating the 200 MB data plan ($15) and the 1 GB data plan ($25).
"We're making some changes to our AT&T GoPhone prepaid plans to simplify our offers and better align with what customers are choosing and telling us they want," the company said in a statement. "We've begun letting customers know about the changes in advance, and we'll have more information on new, additional plan options soon."
According to AT&T, new plans will be unveiled in the "coming weeks", but there is no indication if the new plans will carry prices as low as those currently offered.

I'm sure what the customers actually said was more on the line of "these data caps on the cheap plans might've been reasonable when they launched a few years ago; but are completely useless now please make them higher"; and the PHBs decided to profiteer at the same time by just eliminating the plans their customers said were too small.
