    Cheap way to try Tmo would be to get a $5 trial Mint Mobile sim card kit. Mint is inexpensive, good and even has international roaming, but wouldn't work for your son because no unlimited plans at...

    Skyroam uses virtual "cloud" sims. The 3g+ model I have has no sim card behind the battery. Glocalme I think is a similar arrangement. Main attraction to me is just load some day passes and turn it...
