This post was sponsored by AT&T but the opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
The New York State Fair is a fun gathering of the best trade has to offer, with over two weeks of festivities and shows and amusements. This year AT&T came to share GoPhone, a pay-as-you-go service for phones, tablets, and hotspots with AT&T’s reliable 4G LTE network, making it easier to stay connected with what matters without being tied down to a contract.
We had a great time at the fair! We rode rides, ate treats, saw a horse show, and visited the #ATTGoPhone booth to learn about their service. I love the idea of a prepaid hotspot. I only need it to travel, so AT&T GoPhone’s services are perfect for someone like me who doesn’t need a hotspot daily or even monthly, but just for the few times a year I need internet on the road. I kind of totally ♥︎ it.
For people who travel or just don’t want to feel committed to anything, GoPhone lets you use a phone, tablet, or hotspot when you need it. It’s a great idea if you don’t need a monthly phone service, or when you send off kids to camp for the summer and want a way to stay in touch, or are traveling and need a phone or hotspot on the road, or have kids in college who need phone service for an entire semester at a time- it’s so versatile and flexible, and affordable!
I used a Samsung Galaxy Express with my AT&T GoPhone service, which I was able to set up in literally minutes- I just needed an email address. About 30 minutes after I signed up, I was assigned a phone number and ready use my phone at the fair to capture the fun and share it with my social media friends.
A day at the fair
While visiting the AT&T GoPhone booth at the Great New York State Fair in Syracuse, I was treated to my first experience with virtual reality too- very fun! I can see this being very addictive.
We also made our own sunglasses and t-shirts commemorating our day at the fair at the #ATTGoPhone booth. Everyone in the family got a souvenir.
Stay connected on your own terms
AT&T is going to be at all the best music, sport, and family-friendly festivals this summer to share the great news about AT&T’s GoPhone prepaid wireless service. While we are making memories and living in the moment, the last thing we want to waste time thinking about is going over our data plan, and AT&T is offering a variety of smartphones at terrific prices for everyone to be able to afford GoPhone.
There are no annual contracts or surprise fees, and if you sign up for Auto Pay, you get an extra savings of $5 a month on top of the already low monthly price. Auto Pay makes it simple to pay automatically with a credit card, debit card, or bank account, if that works for you, or choose to pay by refill cards available at thousands of retail locations nationwide. Pick the monthly plan that works for you!
Because I had my AT&T GoPhone, I was able to snap pics and selfies of my fun day at the New York State Fair and share them easily, without worrying about how much data I was using, how much texting I was doing, or how much I was chatting on Twitter or Instagram.
