Consumers, Individual Responsibility Users (IRUs), and Corporate Responsibility Users (CRUs) have different options to stay informed about their data usage and can check it anytime online through the my AT&T mobile app, or by dialing *DATA# from their mobile phone.
AT&T also sends courtesy alerts as customers nearing their data allowance for the month.
“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.
What’s more, the new plans finally — — take smartphone subsidies into account to an extent, and they automatically drop in cost by $15 per month once your phone is paid off.
Or, if you bring your own phone or opt for one of the carrier’s AT&T Next plans, your service is cheaper per month from day one.
Remember our discussion about how phones like Google’s great Nexus 5 are really only a value if you use them with a service plan that doesn’t factor in handset subsidies?
Well AT&T’s new Mobile Share Value plans move a big step closer to accomplishing that.
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.
