Haven't used them myself, but they look interesting. I'm not sure if they are any better than the coupon deals you can get elsewhere though.

If you mean the phone sim card, yes I have.

Its an odd set up in that you pay for what you want, get a payment conformation and are told that your sim card will become active on the day that you have stipulated you want your contract to start, which by default means you cant check it until you land in the US.

On the day your contract starts, you get an email stating your US phone number for the duration of the contract. However my sim was faulty and because i wasn't in Orlando they couldn't get me a replacement sim until I arrived in Orlando itself (5 days hence), although if I had been in Orlando they would have dropped it off at the hotel or villa for me.

They automatically cancelled the contract (and refunded) on the faulty sim and when I got the new one I had to apply for a new contract (which was actioned immediately).

Pro's
True 4G
Cheaper than Vodafone (who I'm locked into because I benefit from a generous corporate discount).
Customer Service was good (initially via email, then they called my UK number)
You can ring US numbers.
Con's
You cant ring UK numbers (even if they are in the US).
Your number has been used before by someone else before, which means;
You get odd phone calls sometimes (Dominos rang me about
"my" pizza)
Your number is on cold calling lists - No problem for me
because I knew that I hadn't given the number to anyone else
in the US so the call wasn't for me. If I had given the number
to hotels etc. as my contact details it would have been more
problematic.
Would I use them again? YES, as long as I had another means of been contacted from the UK (Wife's phone etc.).

The 4G was faster than the wife's 3G on the Three network, however could I have got by with 3G? - yes probably.

I'm looking at registering my card just now and was wondering about the extra days we'll be there. When I register do I take the 10 day plan with having the 5 days free already or do I need to do the 15 day plan. My head is telling me it's the 10 day plan but wanted to be sure before I sign up.

I had one of these sims. Thought Id never use it but it was an absolute god send in Disney parks as the WiFi was terrible. Unlimited 4g usage. So I was able to book further fast passes on the app which would not load on WiFi.

I believe you would need to 15 day plan. The site gives you the option to buy upfront or buy an add on later. The 15 Days upfront is roughly the same price as the 10 days later, so I assume the free 5 days is included in the upfront package and not in the buy time later package. Which would make sense as those who would use the add time later would have already benefited from the free 5 days which are included.
