The text ("1GB available for $60") does not currently match the picture ("Starter Byte: 1 Gb for $50"). The text doesn't make sense, either, as the $15/1Gb overages would make it cheaper to just get the 300Mb and go over than get the 1Gb.

As a USCC customer, this _could_ save money based on actual usage, but a lot of existing Belief plans have better terms in terms of potential usage (2 lines at 1500 Minutes/Unlimited Texts/5Gb per line for ~$150). It's a mixed bag.

Wow, AT&T ends up cheaper than this. 300MB, unlimited talk and text for $70 for a smartphone. 1GB= $85; 2GB = $95. It breaks even at 4GB at a total of $110.
