Recommended AT&T Mobile Phone Plan

  • $25/mo. Unlimited

If you are looking for a great deal on a cell phone and your monthly mobile phone plan, check out the AT&T Z431 GoPhone.

A refurbished version of this phone is currently being sold through At&T with a $20.00 discount when you order online, making the phone only $29.99 with free priority shipping. In addition, it's a prepaid phone, so you don't have to sign a 2 year contract.

It's a substantial upgrade from At&T's only cheaper phones, the Alcatel 510 A which is $19.99 and the Samsung A157 available at select Walgreens which is $9.99. Unlike these cheaper cell phones, the AT&T Z431 includes a camera, keyboard for texting, preloaded apps for Facebook and Twitter, GPS, a larger screen, a music player, text messaging that allows the insertion of video and sound clips, e-mail, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, and voice dialing.

So obviously this phone is worth the extra initial investment of $10 or $20, especially since all three phones have access to the same prepaid monthly plans. Out of several cheap mobile phone plans, the lowest priced monthly plan is $25/month which provides you with 250 minutes, averaging out to 10 cents a minute, and unlimited text messaging, which you know will save you a ton when compared to plans that charged you 10 to 30 cents for each text message. Also, a convenient alt key on the keypad allows you toeasily insert common punctuation marks while texting.

Optional data packages for web browsing are available starting from$5 for 50mb, otherwise its pay per use at 1 cent per 5kb. To give you an idea of how much data you need, using the mobile version of Facebook a typical Facebook page uses 10kb or less of data, so looking at one Facebook page would cost you 2 cents.

While its only available online, I would highly recommend it over cheap phones from Walgreens or CVS, which have a tendency to lose text messages and have extremely limited features.
