Yes, AT&T wrecked the GoPhone plans for data users. Apparently too many
AT&T contract customers were realizing that they were paying for far
more voice, texting, and data than they needed.

Not on any GSM network.
The cheapest GSM service with data is probably RedPocket. $30 buys you
250 Minutes, unlimited text, 10MMS messages, and 10MB of data. No
roaming off of AT&T's native network.
On Pageplus you get 250 Minutes, 250 Texts, & 10 MB Data, for $12 per
month. Extra data is 20¢/MB so to bring it up to 20MB would add $2 more.
You would need a Verizon compatible smart phone to use Pageplus.
My family currently has four Android phones on Pageplus.
