My 2 cents: if you are primarily looking for data, T-Mobile has a "free data for life" tablet plan - 200 MB per month, full LTE speed. IPad users can get a universal Apple SIM from the local store, it should work with the T-Mobile network in the USA.

I used PayPal, it has the option to de-authorise future payment, would that work?

The sim should be activated when you receive it but if by chance it is not, you can call customer service to have activate it. Or if you have a Slickdeals.net user account, PM the Freedompop rep on that forum and he/she can activate for you. He/she is usually pretty fast at responding. You will need to provide your SIM card number and your FP account email address in your message.

And just to let you guys know, you can install the Freedompop app before you receive the SIM and login with your credentials to use your calling/texting allowance with any data plan you already have (or WiFi).

Seen numerous SD threads about them and I have been using this sim for my trips to NY last couple of months and it works well, but make sure to set hard limit on your phone for Data and downgrade everything as outlined.

EDIT: Also remember to turn OFF international Data roaming before popping back canadian Sim card.

Even with everything downgraded, I'd recommend spend another $5 per SIM to switch your payment method to a prepaid card (you can't do it when first ordering the SIM). Having a prepaid card on file (w/ a low balance of course) instead of your credit card reduces the risk of unpleasant surprises in the future.
I have a disposable card with NTrust for this. You can equally use a gift Visa/Mastercard

200MB is nice, but I think I will use that up in a day.

You will have your account activated (billing cycle starts) the moment you download the FreedomPop app and sign in with the credential. There are 2 apps:
- FreedomPop Messaging Phone/SIM - Use this app when you are using the SIM as it grabs the account credentials from the SIM
- FreedomPop OTT Call and Text - Use this if you want to use the VoIP/SMS without the SIM or to keep the account active

I don't remember seeing anything about expiring, but I just sign into my account once a month to make a couple calls, texts. It's been about 7 months now and I am still OK.

If you are being offered to buy a second product after check out, DO NOT DO IT. The second item will not get any referral bonus.

Also please don't forget to use ebate.com cashback, last couple promo is $5 CB for any purchase. I profited a few bucks for the $0.99 SIM.
