I went to a local AT&T store, and they said it won't work, period. They said 4G phones are locked out from being used with GoPhone data plans. *sigh I fail to see the logic behind this since I'll be paying for the data anyway. Oh, it's AT&T, logic doesn't count.
If it is indeed true and not just typical misinformation provided by sales personnel in the at&t stores, then I fail to see the logic behind it as well. at&t seems to be recognizing (e.g. the introduction of the smartphone voice plans) that many users are now gravitating toward prepaid service, and for casual international travelers it also makes the most sense. They are missing a large market segment if they don't make the use of their prepaid service feasible with today's smartphones.
There must be a happy medium somewhere between being totally informed and blissfully unaware.
