1. GoPhone Coverage Map. The coverage map shows the scope of your coverage area. Map depicts an approximation of outdoor coverage. Actual coverage area may differ substantially from area shown on map, as coverage may be affected by terrain, weather, foliage, buildings and other construction, signal strength, customer equipment and other factors which do not allow AT&T to guarantee coverage or network availability. You must be in the GoPhone coverage area to place or receive calls. Future coverage, if depicted on map, is based on current planning assumptions but is subject to change and may not be relied upon. Your device's display does not indicate the rate you will be charged.
2. Requirements. An eligible device is required. Rate plans are designed for use on eligible devices as specified in these Plan Terms and the GoPhone brochure. Unless permitted by rate plans, a rate plan designed for one type of device may not be used with another type of device by tethering devices together, by SIM card transfer, or any other means. If you: a) use any GoPhone service excessively, abusively or fraudulently; b) resell or rebill our Services either alone or as part of any other good or service; c) use a rate plan with a non-designated device or without all of the required elements of the rate plan, you agree that AT&T may, at its sole discretion: (1) suspend or terminate your GoPhone service or your GoPhone account; (2) remove any element of the plan (voice, data or messaging service) from being used on a non-designated device; or (3) place an appropriate plan on any non-complying device. 900 numbers are not available.

International Calling packages contain a specific allotment of voice minutes or reduced pay per minute rates. You must have an active (not expired) rate plan in order to purchase or renew a package. If your account balance expires before the last day of the package term, the package cannot be used and the remaining time on the package will continue to run unless you add money to your account during the remaining days of the package period. A package is depleted when you use the entire allotment. Renew a package before its expiration date and any unused allotment will roll over to your renewed package time period.

Data Packages: Monthly: When you add a data package to a Monthly plan that includes a data allotment, the use of data will be counted first against your data package instead of being counted against the data allotment of your plan.

Data usage is charged in five-kilobyte increments, and actual transport usage is rounded up to the next five kilobytes.
