A suggestion: a new customisable plan:
Of course it will cost $4
It will have sliders so you can adjust what you want Talk/Txt/Data wise
So you can adjust the Talk and Text and the Data provision is calculated for you.
e.g. Slide Talk and Text both to 0 and you get 120MB (same as Love Bytes)
Slide talk to zero and text to max of 4000 and you get 0MB data (same as Text Bomb)
Now I'm guessing: slide talk up to ?50? mins and slide texts to 0 get 0MB data
Then intermediate divisions would be calculated by the clever computer say 10mins talk and 10 texts might give you 100mb or so.

This would be an extremely awesome offering if Skinny could implement it!

I don't charge for my ideas, so get to it mr skinny!

Would be a pain to implement on the backend i'm guessing. Awesome idea though.
I want roughly 300mb, 300-500 texts and a small number of minutes (just for spare use).
At the moment id be getting $4 text + $4 data which gives me
10(40) mins calling, 750(3000) texts, 130(520)mb data for $8 ($32)
Pretty good deal but a tad excessive, i'd rather it down on the $20 sort of mark to compete with 2degrees 19combo and telecoms talktextdata$20

Great to see your ideas coming through.  We do add all the feedback into the mix when designing plans.  It is an ever changing market so there will definitely be more coming later in the year.

The problem with the current combo base plans is the minuscule data allocation.
I do like the way Skinny is keeping the options simple, a 'custom' plan is one way of offering a stack of plans that only appears as 'one', instead of a confusing array like some other telcos have. The way to manage it is to save one 'custom' profile to your account, which you modify as required and all the trickery would be easily managed in the back end with a bit of smart programming.

For the average customer skinny works out more expensive. Think about your useage, for me I don't use the majority of my minutes in one week. Some weeks I will use more data and calling. I have worked out that I would end up using less even though it looks like I will get more. But I'm not the target audience anyway.
