Also, I think the official Google Voice app for the iPhone has a built-in feature where outgoing calls are turned into incoming calls.

$30 just to check it out seems a bit too high to us to be practical.
In the dispersion from RP we're now using a total of 4 services via both CDMA & GSM & the total outlay for all the most recent changes is presently zero dollars due to promotions & bonuses;
Before that became a need the highest cost service we got was a $20 Tracfone with a year + 800 minutes & a bunch of $1 SIM kits with minutes that triple on that phone.
All things considered then, the notion of spending $30 on just a single SIM even if it comes with a 50% credit in usage fees covered - just doesn't ring any bells here.
But that's just my 2.5 cents on the idea from my own POV.
