AT&T has introduced Mobile Share Value Plans, a new discount option for its subscribers. The option cuts significant amounts per month off of a Mobile Share plan, so long as a customer meets certain criteria: people must have an off-contract phone, or else upgrade through AT&T's Next program. Under these scenarios, a person can save between $10 and $115 per month on a single device, and between $20 and $105 on a two-device account. Two phones on a 4GB plan, for instance, costs $120 per month.
Charging move brings carrier in line with Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint
AT&T has stopped actively providing its traditional voice and data plans to new subscribers. As announced by the carrier earlier this month, it will be pushing new customers towards its Mobile Share plans, which allows users to have multiple devices on an account sharing a single allocation of data, with unlimited minutes and texts also included.
Old plans will still be supported
AT&T will stop offering its traditional voice and data plans to new subscribers on October 25th, the carrier has announced. The one exception is an individual $40 plan, which includes 450 minutes but no bundled texts or data. Every other new subscriber will have to adopt one of the carrier's Mobile Share plans, which put multiple devices on the same data pool with fees for adding new ones.
