I purchased, via Paypal, the unlimited T&T + 2gb plan on Rakuten for $88( incl. CA tax) + free shipping---so about $7.30 monthly. I use GV, so not worried about number. A little risky yes, but Speedtalk has been around a while and I used its service in the past without problems. I don't want to keep all my phone eggs in one basket(FreeUp) and this will help me to avoid doing so. And the 2GBs are nice to have. T-mobile works well where I live.
***Forgot to mention, though the deals expire soon, in order to get the SAVE15 15% off at checkout, one must create a Rakuten account first so the coupon can be applied at checkout, for you cannot do so checking out as a guest. Plus-- by joining Rakuten, new members get $10 cash back on their first order over $25 dollars, so essentially $78 for the one year deal.
