    well my question is regarding if the galaxy Note which works on AT&T will work on a "pay as you go" plan or prepaid "Gophone" plan, i am currently on simple mobile, and well I tried the galaxy nexus, but I ordered a note from amazon, and will give it a try and of course if i dont like it i will return it, i know it doesnt work on 3g on simple mobile, but i am on wifi most of the time, and well simple mobile is not unlimited anyways so i am not trying to reach the 1 gb data cap, anyhow the reason of my question, is that if i like the note more than the nexus i will return the nexus and keep the note, if so need to know if i should go to at&t on a prepaid service, no need for a contract.

    ok I read that Interesting they throttle the speeds for prepaid, but even if the settings are fixed, is possible to get higher speeds?, anyhow if not then another option i see is straight talk, which i heard works for the Note on 3G, any recommendation will be great, thanks.

    I don't think Straight Talk is a good idea. Base on another ST customer, he said they do throttle after about 2gb and can terminate your account if abused. Also they don't allow tethering. You have to buy one of the two Nokia to get their nonlocked SIM and change the APN setting. I really can't see the hassle.worth it, but if you think its worth it try it.

    Or you can wait for the Note US version comin to ATT next year, but I'm not interested due to the Snapdragon CPU.

    ok tested it and got the AT&T Gophone with the correct apn working, works like a charm, got HSPA+ so happy with it, this phone is not only fast, this is definitely better than the Galaxy Nexus which I have tested, very happy with it.

    good info. what are your speeds up and down? what were was the APN you input? I may go this route if I get a Note. Did you get the $50 go plan with talk, text and data? Do you buy the phone at best buy or something and just pop the SIM in the Note? Are you in an LTE area and would you get the LTE version if it is coming?

    Wish I had read this yesterday. I bought the cheapo moto ST phone and unlimited plan only to find the SIM locked to the phone.

    Sniper, after reading your mssg, I bought a GoPhone and $50 card from BB yesterday. Activated & loaded the $50 plan. Put the SIM in my Galaxy Note, and it said SIM card failure. Tried multiple times, and same thing happens. (G-Note does recognize another SIM from an old AT&T WindowsMobile phone I used to have, and allows me to reset APN. Also G-Note recognizes T-mobile SIM.)

    Which GoPhone did you get? I bought the AT&T U2800A.

    How does this work? Do I need to buy one of ATT's GoPhones and transfer the sim card over, or can I just get a sim card and activate it?

    Thanks a lot for that link, It's just what I was looking for. As for the actual plan, which would be the cheapest plan where I still get 4G speeds? Would it be the Nation 450 ($40) + DataPlus 300 MB for Smartphones 4G ($20)?

    When you buy a go phone from att and activate the sim in the go phone, the sim is locked to that phone for 6 months.

    You can also get a 3G card from Amazon for under $5 and activate it online.

    I bought my AT&T SIM card from eBay.

    Heres the card I bought: Brand New AT&T 4G 3G SIM Card Go Phone Prepaid 73057
    I activated online. Then I purchased the $50 unlimited text and talk prepaid plan and of course I had to get a data plan.

    AT&T says smartphone users have to purchase a data package to use data services on this plan. Now with everything up and running, Im getting HSPA+ speeds on the N7000.

    The international/unlocked G-Note does not support T-Mo's 3G or 4G radio frequencies. It only supports T-Mo's 2G, which is good enough for voice & text, but way too slow for web browsing or streaming video. The AT&T version (unique to the US) reportedly can be modified to use T-Mo's service, but the process sounds kinda complicated & risky. See http://www.androidcentral.com/radio-...obiles-4g-hspa
