The Los Angeles Times reports that beginning Oct. 25, AT&T will only allow new customers to purchase their Mobile Share plan. No other service options will be available. 

The wireless carrier reports that 95% of the 13 million new customers signed this past year chose the Mobile Share plan. AT&T said that they decided to simplify the options for their customers because of this almost unanimous trend in plan selection. 

The new plan includes unlimited talk and text, and the data usage is split between other members of the plan. Customers can choose the amount of data and how many people they would like to include in their Mobile Share.

For new members, the most basic plan they may start with is 300 MB of data costing $50 per phone a month, including unlimited talk and text. 

This move by AT&T is similar to T-Mobile, who implemented their Simple Choice plan earlier this year.

Existing customers will be allowed to maintain their previous plans.
