Pricing Options for AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk (EPTT)

AT&T EPTT offers the following price plans:

  • A $5.00-per-month feature when added to existing voice and data plans.
  • A $30.00-per-month push-to-talk-only rate plan (no voice or non-EPTT data included).

Both options include unlimited push-to-talk; this means that with either option, any data used for the AT&T EPTT application doesn't count against your monthly data plan allowance or incur pay-per-use charges. Note that AT&T EPTT requires a data plan to function properly, so if you use a smartphone you must have a data plan provisioned in addition to your EPTT service.

*Device pricing subject to change. Activate new eligible postpaid wireless line with a two-year commitment and eligible AT&T EPTT rate plan or eligible voice rate plan plus AT&T EPTT feature. Standard contract terms and conditions apply. For full details on AT&T EPTT terms and conditions, visit www.att.com/eptt. Additional restrictions apply.
