AT&T Unlimited Data Plan is Back (Requires DirecTV or U-Verse)
Deal DetailsLast Edited by KiraSD January 12, 2016 at 07:12 AM
AT&T brings back unlimited data plans for its DirecTV and U-verse subscribers: $100 for a single line, $40 extra for additional smartphones or tablets.
Unlimited data will cost $100 per month for a single smartphone, and you'll be able to add additional smartphones for $40 per month each.
If you bundle four smartphones on a single plan, you'll get a credit that makes the fourth line free. That means you'll be paying a total of $180 per month (excluding taxes and fees) for unlimited data, talk, and text on four lines. BUT, you'll have to pay the full $220 for the first two months before the credit kicks in.
|Monthly Access Fee for Device Type|
|1st Smartphone $100 ($60 for the plan and $40 for the first line = $100)|
|Additional Smartphones (Fourth line free after bill credit) + $40|
|Tablets + $40 (or $10 for 1GB)|
|Watches + $10|
|Basic/messaging phones + $25|
|Select connected devices + $10|

If you do sync up your television service with your AT&T plan, you'll also get another $10 off your bill monthly, per AT&T's existing promotion.

Keep in mind:
Adding a tablet to the unlimited plan costs $40 extra per month, compared to just $10 on a Mobile Share Value plan. But you can add a tablet for just $10 with only 1GB of data to work with, compared to full access to the entire data pool on a traditional shared plan.
If you have someone using a basic cellphone on your plan, it's probably best to avoid unlimited: adding a feature phone to the account costs $25 extra per month, compared to just $15 on the standard plans.
Throttling of data usage occurs after 22GB data threshold has been met.
If no longer eligible (cancel DirecTV or U-verse, etc), AT&T will move you to a 10GB plan (overage charge $15/GB) or may move you to your previous plan.
If you cancel Direct Tv or UverseTV from your account then your plan will be reverted back to prior plan.
If you cancel DirecTv or UverseTV,changed from a grandfathered family plan to this new promo unlimited plan, and added more than 5 lines, then you will be reverted to a current Mobile Share plan
You MUST maintain a $220 overall account value every month to retain the $40 credit for the 4th line.
Hotspot/tethering is not allowed nor ever was on unlimited plans

AT&T UDP vs. T-MOBILE UDP QUICK COMPARISON
1 LINE: $100/mo vs. $95/mo
2 LINES: $140/mo vs. $140/mo
3 LINES: $180/mo vs. $180/mo
4 LINES: $180*/mo vs. $180/mo (*AT&T free line credit depends on eligibility)
5 LINES: $220*/mo vs. $220/mo (*AT&T free line credit depends on eligibility)
AT&T has a bigger native network in the U.S. than T-Mobile... definitely a win for those that live/travel to places without T-Mobile.
AT&T offers UDP for tablets at $40/mo. T-Mobile doesn't offer UDP for tablets.
T-Mobile's UDP plan includes 14GB/mo high-speed HotSpot usage. AT&T does not allow HotSpot usage on this UDP plan.
T-Mobile "de-prioritizes" your data connection over 23GB. AT&T "de-prioritizes" your data connection over 22GB.
T-Mobile offers Binge-On (optional unlimited video streaming from popular services, limited to 480p), which on an UDP basically gets you a free movie rental each month. (T-Mobile also includes Music Freedom (unlimited music streaming from popular services), which makes no difference on UDP.)
T-Mobile offers International Texting (both ways) + 2G data roaming in 140+ countries to ALL T-Mobile customers. Unlimited Canada & Mexico Roaming is also included (able to use your T-Mobile service freely in all of North America). Optional Stateside International Add-On ($10/mo or $15/mo) available for Unlimited International Calling to 70+ countries and International Roaming at $0.20/min. I think AT&T may have some sort of International agreement with Mexico, and some included International Texting feature (outbound only), but everything else you have to pay for.
THIS AT&T UDP plan requires you to be a continuous DirectTV and/or U-verse customer. Other restrictions may apply (full details aren't up yet). T-Mobile's UDP plan has no such restriction.
