AT&T GoPhone plans updated: $2-per-day tariff and more

AT&T has announced that it will be launching three new GoPhone prepaid plans as of October 3rd 2010, offering users a choice of only paying for service on the days they actually use it, an inclusive data bundle, or a basic $0.10 pay-per-minute option for those only wanting voice service.  The AT&T GoPhone Unlimited Daily Talk and Text plan is perhaps the most interesting of the three: for $2 per day you get unlimited voice and messaging (IM/SMS/MMS), but if you don't actually make/receive a call or send a message, you don't get charged.

As for the Unlimited Talk and Text monthly plan, there's a $60 contract-free plan which basically assumes you're using unlimited services every day.  For $75 you get that plus 200MB of data.  Finally, Simple Rate offers $0.10 per minute voice calls with no contract.  All three of the new plans will be available from this coming Sunday.
