June 21st is the date set for the whole scheme to go into action. Starting at $25, which is the monthly rate set for the transaction of telephone calls throughout the United States, more than four hours of talk time, will be made available for users. The text messaging service is free and as for the addition of 50MB of data, it comes at a nominal cost of $5. Then there is the $40 monthly package which lends you complete access to more than eight hours of calls along with 200 MB of data storage space. Finally, there are $50 and $60 deals which have even more lucrative offers for enthusiastic customers. There is a discount offer in the new packages as compared to the older ones.
At AT&T they have gotten some serious advice from their clientele and therefore changed their ideology and methodology both, all the better to suit the user base. The basic goal was to cut through the clutter and thereby achieve greater simplification and a streamlined effect regarding the public service. But the important question to ask is whether the consumers will take to this change like a duck takes to water or not. AT&T’s 4G LTE system is operable in close to 280 markets. As for the GoPhone subscribers, they can employ the 4G smart phone (their own or the Samsung Galaxy Express for that matter).
AT&T appears to have radically and fundamentally changed its GoPhone schemata. The Samsung Galaxy Express mentioned at the end of the previous paragraph will be sold to GoPhone users for $250. And while AT&T’s new packages won’t satisfy every Tom, Dick or Harry, they will assuage those members of the socially hungry public who shun complex agreements and draconian upgrade plans. As for the Samsung Galaxy Express that is on offer, it has a number of cool and nifty features which include: Android and Jelly Bean OS; 1.5 Gigahertz Dual Core Processor; 4.5 inch super AMOLED Plus Display; 5-Megapixel Backward-Glance Camera; 1.3 Megapixel Forward-Glance Camera and most importantly 1 Gigabyte Random Access Memory. AT&T and GoPhone have it made for now though what new developments the future brings remain to be seen.
