AT&T 25gb + unlimited talk/text on prepaid for $40 USD - Canadian Usage

Deal Link:

Same deal as this thread but with almost 10gb more:
http://forums.redflagdeals.com/t-t-16gb ... #p30803530

This deal you need to purchase a prepaid phone at any Walmart US location, choose this plan, activate autopay.

Pick a cheap prepaid phone, pop the SIM into your regular phone.

IIRC there are no restrictions to using this in Canada and Mexico. See previous thread linked above to confirm.

There are multiline discounts, see the link for further information.

Also: 2 lines would be $70, 3 lines would be $100, 4 lines would be $120, and 5 lines would be $140.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
eSIM works on this prepaid plan, but you must go to certain AT&T stores equipped with the right tools which you can find out by calling each store in your area.

To save on tax, you can top up your account using Calling Mart and also get a discount (plus earn rewards points). https://www.callingmart.com

Confirmed working method is AT&T GOPHONE REFILL - PIN. AutoPay discount is still applied.

so we can get it in US and then just use it anywhere in US & Canada? I've never tried this, but I will then have a US number right?

I'm assuming possible with autopay by signing up for a US CC?

Very tempted.

Any citation for this? Pretty damn important.

Not that 8GB for $40 is a bad deal or anything. It is still pretty acceptable for people who are using dual sim anyway.

sure if you consider 2g as data. I tested it with the other plan and considered their 2g useless.

International data roaming in this context means outside of U.S., Mexico & Canada I believe.

I don't think it imply bonus data are not usable in Canada. It clearly specified "Data: Includes 8GB of high-speed data and 17GB of bonus data usage in the U.S., Mexico & Canada." and both normal data and bonus data are high-speed data.

the account will use the "bonus data" first before it uses the 8gb that comes with your plan...unless you have used up all your highspeed data(16 gb from original thread), you would not be using 2G.

and we're talking about roaming in Canada and Mexico, not international.


straight from the site:

8GB high-speed data plus 17GB bonus high-speed data for use in the U.S., Mexico & Canada
After high-speed data allowance is used, speeds are reduced to max of 128 Kbps.

are you saying the data terms are different then the 16gb prepaid plan ? i have the 16gb plan and the way you describe it above is not what happens in reality.

Do you have any plan at all that you could provide data on ?

Is high speed data (in Canada while roaming under this plan) 3G or LTE?
