iPhone previously dataless with option

AT&T's prepaid GoPhone brand is set to get a major upgrade on Friday, MacRumors claims. This includes official support for the iPhone, and access to LTE and HSPA+ networks. People have been able to sign up to GoPhone with an iPhone in the past, but until now had to sacrifice cellular data access.

Three iPhone plans will reportedly be offered, ranging up to a high-end $65-per-month tier with 1GB of data and unlimited calling and texting. The cheaper plans, costing $25 and $50, will require buying data as a bolt-on.

Both new and contract-free iPhones should be supported. Anyone already using an iPhone on GoPhone will reportedly get cellular access by June 21st, if they don't ask to be upgraded manually beforehand. iPhone use should include the full range of AT&T services, such as Visual Voicemail.
