Default How does go phone work?

I want to buy the att avail for go phone and decided to check out the pamphlet. I know you can pay monthly with refill cards but on the pamphlet it said 50 dollar refill card unlimited talk- text- long distance text- unl. Plus extra for a data package? So you dont pay 50 a month or what? Or do you need a credit card for a go phone. I am very confused lol.

The $50 a month on AT&T is for unlimited talk, text and web on a Basic or quick messaging device (Non-Android) The avail, being android, is only eligible for the Talk and text for $50 then if you want the android data they have tiered plan for different amounts, something like 200MB, 500MB 1GB ect These all cost extra on top of the original $50.

No credit card is needed, you just get the phone, in store or off the web, it usually comes with a SIM. You Activate it with a number ported from your old provider or just get a new one issued to you, pay for your plan with cash (In store) or credit/debit over the phone with 611.

Once you pay the $50 it is good for 30 days from that day. just add another $50 in a month or let it expire if your done with the service and decide to move on.

Ok, 65 dollars gets you unlimited talk and text and 1gb of data...

That's not a lot of data if you don't constantly use Wi-Fi or don't have access to it regularly.
Additional data is 5 per 1mb over after the 1gb. So what, that's like 51 bucks for the second gb...ouch!
I want to switch to at&t but that data doesn't sound to good...
I need at least 4gb of data and might go over that.
