Default nexus 5 on att gophone

ive got my nexus 5 on att gophone non contract service. when I called 611 the automated service identified my phone as a basic phone, not a smartphone.

Right now im on the 60buck 2gb smartphone plan, but im thinking of trying to switch to a basic phone 50 buck unlimited plan. It appears that the plan does not have the 2gb data limit.

would the basic plan be 4g lte? would this even work? Any unforeseen problems?

Might work for awhile, but I suspect they might eventually twig to it. They had me identified as a basic phone too but that was because I had my old Samsung flip phone in the system.

The $50 Basic phone plan is intended foe basic phones using mobile web, not full-up HSPA/LTE connections. However, I can't say I know how well they police this. Have used them since 2009 but never pt it to the test.

I also had trouble getting LTE at first on the $60 plan. They gave me a new SIM and provisioned my account, but was still showing only H. inally, they (with my permission) collected some data off the phone and 24 hours later, I had LTE showing up.
