    It’s still absolutely a ridiculously high rate for data. For my software unlocked iPhone I got:

    100MB for $20 valid 30 days using AT&T GoPhone AT&T in the US
    750MB for $60 using Telstra valid 30 days in Australia (including 300 voice & 600 SMS)
    2GB for $2.50 valid for 2 days using Movistar in Argentina
