Using SmartPhone with GoPhone Data Plans

Hello,

 

Some years ago I was with ATT, I had a Blackberry Curve, with GoPhone SIM card.

I purchased the GoPhone data plan (~$60.00 for the month).

 

Only to find that my phone was considered a SmartPhone and ATT did not support prepaid Data with Smartphones .... very disappointing.

 

That was some time ago.

 

There are various smartphones out that I like such as:

Samsung Galaxy S4 (or S5)

Samsung Galaxy S4 (or S5) mini

Moto X (by Google)

Google Nexus , etc ...

 

With all of the smartphones out on the market today I was wondering if there is now a GoPhone plan that includes data for smartphones, such as the ones above.

 

More importantly, I will be travelling to US (Florida) for short period .. about 2 weeks ... and would like to have voice and data services while over there.

 

Appreciate any assistance.

1) I will be coming for a short visit, about 2 weeks.
  See the link I posted above and choose the correct plan for you.


2) I would get the Galaxy phone (I prefer mini) unlocked from the US.
   Should be working fine with AT&T. Some Samsung phones from EU,Australia & Asia are not. 

3) The $60 should be good for 2 weeks,I can used up 900MB on my Note 3 for 7 days .
