AT&T's contract-free GoPhone service is being upgraded to add a few more perks for customers, and the changes to the plans will not affect price, according to the announcement from AT&T. Beginning April 25, GoPhone customers will be able to use their smartphones as Wi-Fi hotspots. That might noticeably lead to increases and data allowances, but AT&T claims it has customers covered by adjusting their smartphone plans. Here's the new breakdown:
- Increased data from 2 to 2.5 GB for $60 a month + enabled Wi-Fi hotspot capability + unlimited talk
- Increased data from 250 to 500MB for $40 a month + 500 minutes of talk
- Available at Wal-Mart stores nationwide, a new plan with 1GB of data for $45 a month + unlimited talk.
