I still haven't received it yet. It is stuck in "ready to ship" for the past week... No clue what's going on with them.

Guys, I've got a Motorola phone (Android 6) and I'm wondering if there is a cheap way to get data going on it so I can use Waze. There used to be a company that sold SIM cards for $75 and that bought you some finite amount of data. You had to use it up in a year or something like that. I'm not going to sign up for a '$30/month' data plan and am wondering if there are alternatives. Thanks.
Use Straight Talk. $55 a month, 60GB until they review your data, however if you pass the review they up it to 250GB. By getting their service, you get to use 3 networks on one phone, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. Their phone support is great, and you can keep your current number from your phone provider. They're very good over the phone as well. I have never had a coverage problem with them either.

Just make sure your phone can support most of the bands used by all 3 networks, you can do so here: WillMyPhoneWork.net - Check if your phone works on a network .

I prefer an unlocked phone over anything else.

Also, if you want he ultimate laser jammer and waze + radio all in one you could ever ask for, go here: | Xtrons . I have one of these, best $350 I have ever spent in my life. Works flawlessly, audio quality is 10 fold over the stock stereo, and it's form fit to your vehicle, so no modifications necessary. I love this thing so much.

I highly recommend both of these if you're gonna get more data. I run Waze and Pandora 24/7 in my car and I have never gone above my 60GB review amount.

There are a number of cheap plans. Never payed much attention to them but, Spectrum comes to mind.
$14 / Gig.

I average about 200MB a month so far on a 2GB/month plan. For $55 for an entire year, for me, it's the best deal. I only use this phone for Waze and JBV1 sometimes running both together.

Midd, have you been keeping an eye on your monthly data consumption volume?

Google Fi now offers BYOD, $20 a month plus $10/GB for data (and free data after your first 6GB). If you have Fi service on your main phone, you can order a free data-only SIM that will work in a phone, tablet, or hotspot, and only charges you for the data you actually use.

Always good to see new alternatives pop up.

(I'm cheap and the FreedomPop plan at $50 per YEAR is working for me.)
