- $19/month Fresh Mango - unlimited talk and global text, 100 MB of data and a $5 international credit.

Coverage is T-Mobile native, roaming is not available. Included data is full speed LTE. It's hard caped (data stops when you reach the limit).
Additional data can be added to any plan at: $2/100 MB, $5/400 MB, $10/1 GB, $25/2.5 GB or $50/5 GB. Additional voice minutes can be added to the 250 minute Ripe plan at $2 per 100 minutes. Add-on minutes and data expire at the end of the current plan month.
Mango's international rates are good for light usage. Sample rates per minute for calling mobile phones include: Canada 1.6¢, China 0.83¢, Mexico 1¢, Philippines 14.71¢, United Kingdom 12.2¢.
SIMs are free when ordered with a plan. There are no fees or taxes except for NY state residents who pay state and local sales taxes of up 8.875%.
Mango's sweet spot is in the $19 to $35 price range. The $25 plan is the least expensive T-Mobile based unlimited talk and text and 1 GB plan that I'm aware of. That's $5 per month less than comparable plans from Red Pocket or Ultra Mobile. See our T-Mobile and T-Mobile MVNO Prepaid Plans Compared post to see how Mango's prices stack up against the rest of the competition.
Mango Mobile is sold online and by independent dealers. There's a dealer search form on the Mango site but there don't seem to be many dealers yet. Mango is actively recruiting dealers with a Become a Dealer form on the site.
As with any new MVNO, I do not recommend porting an important number to Mango. The MVNO business is extremely competitive and volatile and the attrition rate of new MVNOs is high. But Mango is worth trying if their plans meet your needs.
Update 8/28/2016: It looks like Mango Mobile is a new brand from international long distance calling card company SDI Distributors, which also operates AT&T MVNO Black Wireless. All three companies share the same 1091 Yonkers Avenue Yonkers, NY address.
Update 9/14/2016: According to Black Wireless VP Tony Cancelleri, "Mango Mobile is a direct product of RPM (Red Pocket Mobile) and is exclusively distributed by SDI. SDI is not the MVNO provider for this brand, although we are working directly with RPM in the distribution of the product."
