  1. A little off the top here......a little off the sides here......let it grow' some more here.... Ultra is the best T-Mobile MVNO for international rates and affordable plans I have seen. Shame that their network is stuck on T-Mobile's old native coverage. Make sure you look at their coverage map before deciding.

  2. The $49 table needs to be corrected to say "Int'l call credit cut from $20 to $10", under the what's changed field
