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

AT&T EPTT offers the following price plans:

  • A $30.00-per-month push-to-talk-only rate plan (no voice or non-EPTT data included).

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.
