    I just bought a new unlocked GSM Moto X. I currently have an iPhone on a postpaid A&T iPhone plan which I'll be cancelling once I settle on the a new plan for the Moto X and transfer the number.

    I rarely make or take calls on the phone so I don't need many minutes. I typically use slightly less than the 2gb allotted in my plan. I had hoped the TMobile $30/month plan would work for me because it fits my needs perfectly except that coverage where I live and along my commute is abysmal.

    So I need a prepaid plan that fits the following requirements:
    - is on the AT&T network which has always had good coverage and speed for me.
    - includes minimal minutes
    - includes least 2gb of data at full speed (I'm not crazy about throttling but it probably isn't a problem since I rarely go over 2gb)
    - includes LTE support

    From my research it seems Net10 and Straight Talk are the only two options at $50/mo and $45/mo respectively.

    Have people had success getting a Moto X to work with either of these providers?
    Is there a strong preference for one over the other?
    Are there other providers I should be considering?
    Am I correct that neither Net10 nor ST offer a nano sim? I've never cut my own sim but I guess I can learn. Do you recommend cutting manually or buying a cutter?

    I know AT&T has the $60 GoPhone plan. I was hoping for something cheaper but I would be willing to go that route if I thought it was significantly "better" in some capacity than the bargain MVNOs like Net 10 and ST.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

    Just a quick note, I bought my cutter via Amazon prime and returned it after cutting my sim to nano size;-)

    aio.com is an at&t operated prepaid network. Might want to check them out.

    The Moto X will not work on AIO if you have KitKat 4.4. Well it works, but there is a problem. The connection keeps dropping. You end up having to turn your phone off all the time to reset it. Search on XDA forum for the thread. I don't know if the problem has been solved or not ... I switched from AIO to straighttalk (AT&T network) and ported my number. Straighttalk is working just fine for me - no issues. I was an AT&T customer for about 6 years. My service/coverage is the same. My X displays AT&T for its network.
