Need help with GoPhones and plan for GoPhone

I'm a low user of a cell phone, maybe 20 minutes a month.  Don't need to access the internet through a cell tower.  Limited budget.

 

I plan to buy either the Nokia Lumia 520 or AT&T Radiant and add the 10 cent/minute prepaid plan.  I think this would cost $25 every 3 months.

 

Can the low cost plan be added to either of the phones or must I purchase a higher monthly rate paln?

 

Also, can I access the internet at free hotspots like a Starbucks or using my home router without any plan costs?

 

Can I transfer pictures to my pc using a usb cable without incurring any plan costs?

Thanks for any replies.

Yes, you should be able to do it, although you may not be able to do so online. A corporate AT&T store should be able to help. Make sure to block the data on the device itself.

 

Also, can I access the internet at free hotspots like a Starbucks or using my home router without any plan costs?

Yes, absolutely. Any free WiFi will work without costing you anything.

 

Can I transfer pictures to my pc using a usb cable without incurring any plan costs?

Yes again.

 

Thanks for any replies.

Thank you dmapr.  I'll buy a phone at Best Buy then take it to an AT&T store and confirm everything before opening the box.
