AT&T Wireless Debuts GoPhone
GoPhone offers unlimited night and weekend calling, domestic long distance, and roaming from AT&T Wireless national service area.
It requires neither a credit check or long-term contract, said officials at AT&T Wireless in Redmond, Wash. Instead, a customer just buys a phone from one of several retail stores and activates it immediately.
GoPhone automatically deducts a set fee from a customers bank account, credit card, or debit card every thirty days, or when a customers account reaches $5, whichever comes first.
When a customers balance falls below $10, and again at $7, AT&T Wireless sends a warning text message right to the phone.
The GoPhone phone is Nokia Corp.s 3590, which supports both voice and data services on AT&T Wireless GSM/GPRS (global system for mobile communications/general packet radio service) network. It costs $89.99 off the shelf at some 10,000 stories nationwide, including Target, 7-11, CompUSA, Staples, Ritz Camera, and AT&T Wireless own retails stores.
Calling plans range from $19.99 to $49.99 a month.
