How to Choose the Right New Line Deal
Before shopping for a new line, it is important to understand your specific needs. I recommend considering your budget, coverage and data requirements, and any other features that are important to you — think insurance, need for a mobile hot spot, international calling options, or even enhanced device protection.
Once you know what you need, the best way to find great deals when adding a new line with AT&T is by researching online. Start at the AT&T Plans page and explore all the options. Keep an eye out for limited-time promotions and offers that might be available.

Be sure to compare the features and cost of each plan and read all the customer reviews you can. If you have specific questions, you can reach AT&T customer support or visit your nearest AT&T store. I also recommend signing up to get emails about AT&T’s offers and deals, and following @ATTexplore on Twitter and AT&T Explore on YouTube.
