    Let's not forget the ads, but if your on Chrome use BLOCKER plugin. There is 3 line of code to get ride of the frame to the right side in FB on Chrome. This only works in Chrome. On Android device you use Adfree but the tablet or smarphone needs to be rooted.

    If I recall correctly, Virgin Mobile has a $50 plan that is unlimited talk, text, and data.
