How easy is it to get your new Moto X Pure Edition up and running on your carrier of choice? As easy as swapping in a nano SIM from that carrier. Have activated service on AT&T? Just put your SIM in.

For AT&T customers using the $60 a month GoPhone plan, the carrier is making the 4GB of high-speed data on your account usable for travel in the countries of Mexico and Canada.

Not new, but definitely noteworthy, when users pay with Auto Refill, they also save $5 on their monthly bill, bringing the total to $55 a month for 4GB of high-speed data in the US and across the border on both sides. These GoPhone accounts also feature AT&T’s Rollover feature, where unused data amounts carry over for a 30 day period.  (more…)
