Thinking of switching to prepaid
Please let me know if there is a downside here/if i'm miscalculating:-)
I have 3 lines on AT&T Unlimited & More which is the cheaper unlimited with lower quality streaming and no hot spot. My billing works out to $58 a month per phone (with all taxes/fees). I am thinking of changing to AT&T prepaid because of their current promotion on the unlimited plans ($20 off on the $65 & $85 unlimited plans with auto pay)
(right now, their calculator on that page is only giving the $10 autopay discount, not the $20 promotion one).
I'm looking at changing two of our phones to the $45 plan and one to $65 (want the hot spot back on one phone). I "chatted" with a rep about prepaid taxes and fees and they told me i'd only have to pay a couple dollars extra per month per phone with taxes.
In addition to the autopay discount it looks like I'd also get a multi line discount ($20 for 3 lines I think). So
$45+$45+$65-$20 = $135 a month or $45 + taxes so say $47 per line per month total is what I expect to see.
- hot spot back (one line)
- about $11 cheaper per line per month ($33 a month saving)
- AT&T WatchTV.
- can use phone and data while visiting Canada
- unlimited with lower quality streaming
