Re: use a att go phone as a contract phone.

Yes, you can use a gophone as a contract phone. You don't need to pay full price for a new phone up front, with NEXT, you can space the payments out over up to 36 months, depennding on the plan you choose.

Re: use a att go phone as a contract phone.

well I brought a phone to att on my husband's plan and im not eligible for an upgrade with my phone line and the next plan is not an available option for my phone line it said I'd have to pay full price. I'm ok with buying a go phone for now and then paying for a new device out right at tax time. thanks for your response it's much appreciated!

Re: use a att go phone as a contract phone.

You have other options also.  I've looked at some of the Gophones and they look better than they work.

BUT.... There are great new unlocked smartphones sold at Best Buy for $200-$400 full price.   Rather than the $700 for phones from ATT.  

 

Ive done really well buying mint conditioned used phones on eBay.   Just bought a Note 3 for $160.

Re: use a att go phone as a contract phone.

I was cheated by the AT$T store staff. He told me that I can buy a go phone and use it as replacement for my contract line.  He told me that he can register me a $40 plan then he cancel it right after purchase.   the next day, I also called the AT&T to confirm the cancellation.  

 

Today, I looked at my credit card statement. I found that AT&T has charged the go phone for six months. 

 

Be careful.  They are not trustful.

He who?   And why did you buy a plan when you only needed a phone?
