    The problem with GoPhone is that the data options are outrageously expensive. You pay from $25 to $100 per gigabyte. And those are their new "more reasonable" plans.

    Another thought: put the Radar on Virgin Mobile's $45/month unlimited voice & data. They will sell you SIM that works on T-Mo (or AT&T, if your phone is unlocked).
