I think the OP has been tricked by the "unlimited" wording :)
ROTFL - "Unlimited 500mb Data" - hows it unlimited ?? :)

Unlimited voice and sms plans are very common in the USA. There is nothing great in any way about the plans offered by them compared to any other carrier.

They also appear to possibly be some form of MLM system - you can't sign up directly with them, you have to us an "e-associate".

Started reading about Buzzirk Mobile, zer01 etc and it's very clear the whole company is nothing but MLM scammers who keep trying to reinvent themselves.

Yes, another one who defines "unlimited = large but still limited".

No that I'd use that much - I use about 300MB/month on my smartphone, and wouldn't replace my landline-based broadband with a much slower mobile broadband. But sometimes you do need to work while away, and 5GB is not much really.
