    Try http://www.h2owirelessnow.com. It is $10 for the card and $10 pre pay for 3 months with 100MB of data. Plenty for the Flytrex. If you can get a good IEMI number for an Android compatible tablet, try T-Mobile and ask for the 200MB per month plan for life. It is $10-$15 for the SIM card and it is good for life. It can be a real pain to activate, I had good IEMI #'s and it took a lot of trials to get someone to get them going. I was able to get 2 activated for my 2 P2's and have the H2O as a backup. Both working well in my area South CA. I am headed to Austin on Sunday so I can try them in Texas.

    I used the same for my Live3G here in California and it worked great. I don't think there's a better deal around either.

    Look for the h20 sim on Amazon. You can get it for a penny instead of $10!! That's where I got mine. With free shipping too.

    h20wireless - I have a few flights on my 3GLive and it works great - I don't see how you could burn through $10 USD of data with just the Flytrex - I flew for 20 mins and went through $.06 on the data plan.

    I too use H2O Wireless. I'm in western Kentucky and have had no issues at all getting data to Flytrex.

    Very easy to use/set up.

    I just checked my balance on my SIM and I've still got $9.25 available. I've made probably 20+ flights with this three month cycle.

    DON'T USE T-MOBILE!!! I live in Houston & the cheapest you will pay for them is $10.00 @ month & that's only if you are currently using them for your Mobile phone needs! If you get the pay as you go the minutes only are good for 7 days!! Now I just changed over to H2O Wireless & it only cost me $10 & that data is good for 90 days...Trust me when I tell you that T=Mobile is not the way to go if your not currently using them for your Mobile ph provider & then you will still pay $120.00 a year -vs- $40.00 @ year for H2O Wireless...
    I just switched over a few minutes ago actually...

    T-Mobile works, and its a one time charge of $10 for 200mb / month for life. I posted about it here viewtopic.php?t=34467

    You just have to be persistent. Much better deal than anything else out there.

    All I did was go to the AT&T store and pay $15 for a micro-sim, gave them the IMEI for the Flytrex, and added it to my 10GB/month family share data plan...
