"AT&T is offering tablet owners two new postpaid billing options. With a $25 for 2GB plan, customers can get a month free for a limited time. AT&T is now offering tablet owners the option of a post-paid billing plan. Like the prepaid plan, it doesn't require a long-term contract and is added on to a customer's existing monthly statement."
Now you can go with a prepaid or a postpaid option, but the twist is in how its charged. If you go with the prepaid option ($14.99 USD for 250MB a month or $25.00 USD for 2GB), you pay in advance via credit card. If you go with the postpaid option, it is charged to your AT&T bill, including the overages. And there is where there is another twist. If you go over on the prepaid option, you pay either $14.99 USD for another 250MB or they charge you $25.00 USD for another 2GB. If it's on the postpaid option though, you get charged the same $14.99 USD for the 250MB option but if you go over on the $25.00 plan, you are only charged $10.00 USD per GB. No contract terms on either plan, but for convenience it appears to me that the postpaid version is a better deal.
