It's certainly not the first prepaid provider to make its rates lower than its parent, but AT&T's new $3-per-day unlimited calling plan could be something to consider over the carrier's postpaid offerings. Launched in all markets today, the plan charges $3 only on the days you use it - and if used every day throughout the month, would cost between $84 and $93. Needless to say, the price is lower than the $99.99 postpaid offering. Will AT&T compete with themselves by lowering the price of the postpaid plan, or including unlimited text messaging and/or data like the Simply Everything plan?
Along with the announcement, AT&T launched the Samsung A177, a low-end messaging phone with a QWERTY keyboard. Of course, with a $99.99 no-commitment price, the device isn't exactly a stunning piece of technology, but it does offer a slender form factor and a VGA camera. And hey, if you don't want to carry the A177, the option to bring over an unlocked phone is always there.
