interesting concept though with significant limitations.

Some observations:

It's not all that cheap unless you use just a little bit of data. An equivalent plan on Cricket (AT&T) at say 2.5Gb would cost $10 less with auto pay.

I can see this appealing to folks who travel overseas.

I am not sure what the deal is with the refund thing. Just charge by the Mb from the get-go and do away with that.

I like the concept that you can communicate on multiple plaforms though you can kind of do that already with google voice today.

This program being available on one device only is a severe limitation obviously. I am wondering if and when they'll release more devices to support this.
I agree with all of that.

They do say that the Nexus 6 is "the first" device to support the service, implying that there will be more.
Does Cricket offer WiFi calling?

I would love to see...

some plans that actually catered to folks like myself that use data more than voice. Flat rate of $10/GB is steep.

How is it credited?

You'd assume it would be cash credit but I have a sneaky suspicion it's a google play credit.
I would assume the refund comes in the form of a credit on your next bill.

WiFi and Data

Is the Data you're purchasing for usage on the networks? I would assume you're not getting dinged for using WiFi for data usage.
