I thought AT+T has been offering the Iphone 3GS as a Go Phone. I’ve seen ads on billboards around town for a few weeks.
Virgin still smacks this down with the LG Optimus V at $25/mo for unlimited text, web/data and 300-min voice. Nice to see AT&T kind of coming around for those of us who don’t want a contract. I’m still shocked at how much I’m enjoying my Optimus V and haven’t hit any dead spots using the Sprint network.
Thanks Virign for being ahead of the curve on prepaid! :)
