That is exactly what I have. And that is exactly what I do. It is the most
economical. Also any unused balance will get carried indefinitely if you
renew before it expires with $100.

The downside is that if you use a smartphone and use the "full internet"
(e.g. Opera browser),
they charge exorbitant rates. Make sure you configure the WAP proxies
correctly to avoid that. I have had so so success with them (web would work,
but Google's Gmail application will not or vice versa).
