AT&T Announces New Mobile Share Value Plans, BYOD Users Save $15 a Month

AT&T has announced the debut of its Mobile Share Value plans, which it says will offer customers more savings and will provide contract options including no annual service contracts.


AT&T’s Press Release

With the ‘No Annual Service Contract’ options, smartphone customers can save $15 a month on Mobile Share Value plans. Customers can receive these monthly savings when they: Get a new smartphone for no down payment with AT&T Next; bring their own smartphone; purchase a smartphone at full retail price; or when their smartphone is no longer under contract and they switch to the new plans. All Mobile Share Value plan customers will benefit from shared data plus unlimited talk and text on their phones. Consumers will have the ability to connect up to 10 devices, including tablets and other wireless devices, while business customers will be able to connect up to 10, 15, 20 or 25 devices, depending on the plan.

A small “gotcha!” though, as any customers wanting to take advantage of the new rates are required to subscribe to one of AT&T’s Mobile Share plans, where users draw from a pool of shared data among a group of subscribers, along with unlimited talk and text.

The carrier will also be adding a new 18 month option for its AT&T Next early upgrade program on December 8th. It allows a customer to get a new phone after 18 months, with total payments spread over 26 months.
