Prepaid 10¢ /minute plus Tablet Prepaid plan
Hello, I will travel to Miami beach for 3 weeks. I won't use my smartphone that much for phoning so the prepaid 0.1$ / minute plan would be the best for me but I will use the mobile internet often. I was just wondering if I am able to buy a prepaid sim card and if it's possible to add tablet 3GB prepaid plan as a feature on the same sim card. Philipp

Very unlikely. For some reason AT&T likes to make them different. As you can see in http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/plans/prepaidplans.html, there's no option to add any data to the prepaid plan you want. You can purchase a separate 3GB plan for your tablet: http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/plans/dataplans.html, but then you're looking at spending about $55 between the two ($25 being the most likely "buy in" for the phone).

No,it do not work this way.

You can have your phone for 10 cents a min.

Your tablet maybe an IPad??

You can get a 250 MB data plan on 3G for US$15 +Tax a month on your IPad(Data only).

I do not think they work too well for Android.

 Also you need to get a micro Sim card,US address,US credit card etc etc,can be a headache Smiley Frustrated

Ok thank you for your reply's. My tablet is one with android but I don't want internet acces for it, just for my smartphone. Can I also use the Basic/quick messaging phone plan with unlimited internet access for 35 USD with my Samsung Galaxy S2?

You're not supposed to. AT&T will want you to pick a smartphone plan to use with that.

This is correct. The $35 monthly plan applies to non-smartphones only. Smartphones will not be able to use unlimited data for prepaid, either.
