    THIS IS ONLY A GOOD DEAL FOR THE LOWER PRICE PLANS…. IF YOU PLAN ON USING IT MORE THAN THE 250 MB LIMIT, IT WOULD BE A BETTER IDEA TO GO TO VERIZON AND GET THEIR AIRCARD. FOR $60 A MONTH YOU CAN GET 5GB… VERSUS THE 1GB THAT VIRGIN MOBILE IS OFFERING. :)

    I don’t get it? Why would someone pay 60 a month for 1GB using Virgin mobiles network, when you can pay the same thing for 5GB using Verizons network. Not to mention you can get the equipment for a third of the price at verizon. Verizon does do 1yr contracts ya know…

    this service is directed at the vorounable and weak financialy segment of the society ?its not enough that they are suffering the loss of a job or a limb or health and cant work or poor along with what that brings of bad cridit suffering ,yet they prusser those people to pay a lot more just to feel human and punish them more for being weaker financialy ,and I include verizon and the other companies too as their prime directive and target is money and lots of it ?1other wise why they can’t come up with a prepaid plan just like every body else BOOST OR METRO PCS and no one will loose and they will make tons of money ?WHY
    for one simple reason CREATING 2-3 LEVEL OF HUMAN TO SERVR AND STAY LOW AND INFERIOR AS A NEW KIND OF SLAVERY BUT NOT BASED ON COLOR OR RACE ?!BASED ON MONEY POWER and all companies help create this kind of leveling and I dont exclude any one of them ,T-mobil once tried to help
    and still with the smart access but they took it off right away ?no one knows the reason ?$?!

    I really don’t get these responses. Everyone of you have incorrect information. Before you post something you should have the facts. I went to the following website: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/mobile-broadband & discovered the plan you are talking about is only $40 per month, for only $20 more which is $60 per month you can get 5GB. Unlike the other carriers there is no contract and no credit check. Why would anyone choose a contract? Contracts keep you a prisoner of the carrier when something better comes along. I can keep this one month, one year, or how long I like and switch to something better when it comes along. Carriers like for people to be in contracts to keep you in their company or face a penalty for leaving early.

    Not to mention the fact that you have control over the amount of use you need and when you use it, instead of paying a fixed 60 bucks a month for 2 years regardless of whether or not you use is. Moody shoudl not only learn how to spell but also check the facts.

    This is a great idea for people who have internet access included in their rent (like me), but who want secure browsing when they are traveling (like me when I’m cruising on mt sailboat). I have had a Sprint card for three years, and it’s great when I need it, but when I’m home, I’m still paying the monthly fees and it’s a waste of money.

    I got the stick for the computer, then got the unlimited plan for 40.00.
    Well it was for 5G usage. Then the next time I loaded the air card, it was 50.00 for 2.5G.
    Have the usage for more money. I dumped them. They get you to buy their adapter, say this is what it is, then they cut it in half and charge you more $$$$. Branson needs to get a grip. There are to many other better offers out there. I travel a lot too. But even the new net zero is better than thier crap. Thats all good luck.
