All TAP plans are for use in the U.S.

*Text Accessibility Plans not available for iPad.

TAP plans are available on select Smartphone and Blackberry® devices. Please check with our National Call Center for Customers with Disabilities for available devices.

**Existing Smartphone subscribers who already have a Smartphone data unlimited plan on their account will be allowed to keep their existing data plan should they choose, even if upgrading their device to another Smartphone and/or extending their contract. However, should they choose to move to a new lower-priced option, they cannot go back to their old unlimited plan in the future. All NEW activations or new-to-smartphone upgrades must choose one of the above.

***FaceTime over Wi-Fi is supported on all iPhone and iPad devices without a Text Accessibility Plan.

TAP plans are available for all versions of iPhone. Customers interested in a TAP plan for iPhone will need to follow regular iPhone activation procedures. Once iPhone is activated, the customer may contact our National Center for Customers with Disabilities to change his or her plan to one of the TAP plans for iPhone.

In addition to the monthly cost of the rate plan and any selected features, AT&T imposes the following charges: a Regulatory Cost Recovery Fee of up to $1.25 to help defray its cost incurred in complying with obligations and charges imposed by state and federal telecom regulations, a gross receipts surcharge, and State and Federal Universal Service Charges. These fees are not taxes or government-required charges. Taxes and other fees also apply.

All customers interested in any of the TAP plans will need to qualify for these plans by completing the Text Accessibility Plan (TAP) Application and Certification Form, (TAP_disability_certification_form.PDF, 115 KB).

Handset availability and pricing is subject to change.
