  1. I kept my T-Mobile plan going when I moved here. From WalMart. $30/mo. unlimited text/data, 100 min. talk, .10/min after that. The best thing is I can make and receive calls to and from the US for free over wifi as if it were a local call in the US. Don't know if that's a T-Mobile feature or a feature of my Samsung phone? Not sure if it's worth $30/mo. though. I may drop it. I spend less than $5/mo. here with Kolbi prepago and use a iPhone 4s.

  2. The only expats I know who moved back didn't want to and did so for medical reasons. Though the quality of care in many areas here is equal to the US, they felt there would be more drug trials and experimental studies they could have access to in the US (for Parkinsons). Having Medicare may also be a factor. And Affordable Care Act - I don't know much about that.

  3. I have a $30/mo. pre-paid T-Mobile plan with unlimited data and texts and 100min call time ($.10/min beyond that). It was only available online or at WalMart, not in T-Mobile stores. I heard T-Mobile now has a pre-paid plan with unlimited calling and texts for $30/mo. I like the T-Mobile sim card with my unlocked Samsung Galaxy S3 phone because I can make and receive calls to/from the US for free over wifi here in Costa Rica and still use the sim card as usual in the US. And T-Mobile has pretty wide coverage in the US with their high speed 4G network.
