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.

Straight talk is no longer selling AT&T SIM cards (though apparently existing AT&T SIM cards through Straight Talk continue to work).
Also, they did offer the pseudo 4G speeds of AT&T's HSDPA+ network. I would get around 5 MBit with speed tests when using my International Galaxy S2. There was some tweaking that you had to do, but you did get at least 1+MBit (which is fast enough for almost everything I did with that phone).
