We have communicated directly with OTR Mobile, and they claim to have a direct reseller relationship with AT&T with the plans being on AT&T's prepaid network. This means there is no domestic or international roaming included.
As with all third-party resellers on these no-contract plans, consider that the carrier and service could be changed or terminated with little notice.
OTR Mobile offers unlimited, AT&T based data with the following plan options:
- A 1-Year plan for $660 (paid upfront. works out to $55/month)
- A 90-day plan for $180 (paid upfront works out to $60/month)
- Price was supposed to increase to $70/month starting on September 1st, 2019 - however OTR Mobile says they have reversed that decision for now. Customers to sign-up for auto-renew will continue at the $60/month rate should they increase the pricing in the future.
All plans are data only and do not include any voice or texting service - and your service is through OTR Mobile. You will not have a direct relationship with AT&T, and can not contact them for support and nor will this plan impact any other AT&T plans you might have.
