    I'm leaning towards T-Mobile's $30 plan. Has anyone confirmed this works with OPO?

    I'd rather go with Straight Talk, or Cricket, if I recall correctly both use ATT network, so better coverage.

    Is OPO able to activate on T-Mobile's site?

    That is the best - I do like the Walmart deal with StraightTalk for 45.00, 3GB of data and unlimited voice and messaging...

    Republic Wireless has a $25 unlimited talk, text and data. It's what I use. Unfortunately, it's locked to their two available phones; Moto G and Moto X.

    And, it uses the Sprint network - sucks in my area...

    It will work, but make sure you have a micro sim since the standard sim card won't fit in OPO unless you don't mind cutting it down into a micro sim.

    T-mobile has faster data speeds, if he gets good coverage, he should stick with t-mobile.

    The OPO is completely carrier unlocked, meaning it can be activated on virtually any GSM carrier.

    As for as a "best unlimited" data plan, the only thing I can suggest is T-Mobile. Coverage aside, their $30 unlimited web plan is a great deal.

    Republic Wireless has been selling the Moto X and Moto G, while offering very competitive pricing for service. However, Republic uses the Sprint network. Unless you live in Kansas, Sprint's network is about as effective as using 2 tin cans strung together.

    Straight Talk advertises their $45 plan as unlimited data, but it is not. Once you hit 3GBs, they will cut your data off. Some of my customers have made the mistake of watching an entire 2-hour summer blockbuster on their phones, and then they wonder why their data no longer works.

    Overall, they may not have the best network around, but as I've stated before, I would recommend an unlimited plan with T-Mobile.

    Are there any just unlimited data plans? Then I'd setup a Google Voice for any calls/texting needs.

    Right now, I don't think anyone offers a data-only plan for a phone. Years from now, that may change with VoLTE. However, the carriers won't let you use a data-only plan on a phone. You could buy a mobile hotspot, and go that route, but then, you'll always have to carry around 2 devices.

    I have seen Straight Talk SIMs sold in a few of the major airports in the U.S. You can also get a prepaid T-Mobile or AT&T prepaid SIM at a carrier store or possibly at Walmart.

    Note: Regarding the $60 Straight Talk SIM bundle-
    The nano SIM in the package will run on AT&T. The Micro SIM in that bundle will run on T-Mobile.

    T mobile is what I use. Just watch out on 30 dollar plan, once you go over you 5 gigs its about useless it goes so slow, I've heard the 80 T-Mobile plan is truly unlimited data. With 3.5 gigs tethering.
    The 30 plan is so cheap I have a few times hit the 5 gig mark early and I just start again for 30 bucks more.

    It only has 100 minutes, but does t-mobile to t-mobile calling take up any minutes?
