AT&T to streamline traditional voice plans in favor of Mobile Share

AT&T to streamline

AT&T is planning to axe its traditional monthly calling and data plans for new customers — both individual and family — in favor of the network’s latest shared data options, Engadget has learned after receiving an anonymous tip and reaching out to AT&T. It appears that this move is in response to the overwhelming success of AT&T’s Mobile Share since its original debut. Existing customers who have been enjoying the older offerings won’t see any change to their plan, and will even still have the option to upgrade phones, activate lines and adjust their plans accordingly without being forced onto the shared data plans. We’ve also confirmed that the individual $40 plan that comes with 450 minutes and doesn’t require texting or data, will still be available to new customers who only need an absolute basic plan. AT&T tells us that more details will be on the way in the near future, so we’ll update our post at that time.
