    Why don't they tell you what you get for your money? Pay $45 and we'll give you some access but we won't tell you how much? This is really dumb.   (5 Answers)

      Answer

      Understand the concern that they don't tell you what exactly you get for the money, but it really depends upon the pre-paid plan you are actually signed up for. So the answer is "it depends". Some specific prepaid plans also may not be available anymore. My plan is $25 per month for 200 minutes, unlimited text, and NO data. The $45 card would add $45 to my account towards a little less than 2 months of this plan. Other people are signed up for other plans, and the $45 would cover all or only some of a month of service. Some people have more pay as you go plans (per minute, per GB) type plans......so, it really depends is the right answer.

        Answer

        I can't answer the question about these working with an ATT wifi hotspot. But I can say when they expire......once added to one's account, they expire at various times depending upon the value of the card. A $15 card expires in 30 days. The $25 card expires in 90 days. Not sure about the other expirations.

        Answer

        Do not get a prepaid card from Best Buy cuz they don't scan them right and it shows whenever you go to use them that it's a used car and they won't do nothing about it

        Unlimted talk and text for 30 days + an additional 60 day buffer before having to purchase an additional card. You won't be able to make calls after the first 30 days.

      I know the $45 card expires in 90 days. I want to buy several of them. If you store them for later, will the 90 days start ONLY after you activate them?   (4 Answers)

        Yes they can only begin the service days when you activate the card. If you do it online you can save $5 a month.

          Answer

          Depending on how long it has been off they're going to make you go to the AT&T store and get a new SIM card for The Go phone. They did me the same way a couple of months back when I had to use a flip phone while my smart phone was messed up so I could get a new one.
