Phone help

My check finally cleared! Yea! Now the adventure can continue! Now I would like your input on those burning questions on how best to spend it (on phones, that is)...

Been searching the AT&T site on Go Phones. Can these be purchased at the local store or only online? Couldn't find any info on the local side. I realize it's more expensive then being on contract but being an old f**t I could expire before the 2 year plan runs out and that would be such a waste :}

If I go back to the states for a visit will the plan go with it?

Can I keep the number I have from my NM Alltel phone? That would be nice since I have business cards.

The plan I'm looking at is either the $3/day or $1/day Go Phone. I looked at the other monthly GP plan but not too crazy about having my account automatically debited.

Also don't need a fancy phone so am looking at the one for $15.

Here's the link:

Thanks for your help and I look forward to life in the left lane!

Good morning NovaNut,

Head to the AT&T store for the most up-to-date answers to all your questions -- they do carry Go Phones at the store. Your plan will work stateside anywhere you have the AT&T network, but I don't know about number portability down here.

Good luck!

AT&T go phones are much less expensive at Radio Shack.

Thanks Bombi.

Are they in the same location as the AT&T store? Do they offer the same deals? The phone I looked at online was a no-frills cheapy at $15. although I feel certain they'll be 'out of stock' when I request one.

If you can get a 340 area code it will help - many folks will not return off island area code #'s if they will incur long distance charges on their land line.

Radio Shack is in the Sunny Isle Plaza near the new food court.

I'll be on island in 3 months and just stopped by the ATT store here in Atlanta and spoke with the guy about my move. I don't know for certain that what he said was factual...I'm not actually doing anything for a few months...but he said that the "number change" thing was very simple. Heck...he wanted to give me a USVI number right then and there.

Not sure what a "go phone" is but I was lead to believe that the whole deal was quite simple and could be done quickly.
