How come it only gives me the option of an additional 1gb for $10!?
You are looking at optional features to add to your monthly plan you have to change the actual monthly plan by clicking on view details change plan and change it to a higher monthly plan you will start over the data allowance but the extra charge will be prorated

So I should do this only after I use my 2.5 gb and then again after I use the 5gb? Or can I do it all at once and it will add up?

Also, any risk of them shutting the account if this is abused monthly?

You do it only after you finish your 2.5 gb if not you will lose what ever is not used
I don't know about the risk of being shut down this is the first time I tried it

How is cricket's service?
When I used other AT&T mvno's, the wait time till an outgoing call started ringing was about 20 seconds
And people calling me also had to wait a long time till it started ringing by me. (It seems that this is how AT&T punishes their resellers)
Anyone has experience with cricket?

There definitely is a slight delay not 20 seconds maybe 3-5 seconds for outgoing

I know
But that does not make it better than AT&T go phone which is not the best service (vs postpaid)

So, I've read most of this thread and I'm sold. Transferring from H2o to Cricket.

I'll be in a cricket store tomorrow but apparently it's cheaper to buy a sim online in advance.

Where can I buy a sim online for cheap?

One issue with cricket is android updates. When a new version or security update comes out, cricket /Att doesn't release it to many phones. Besides that, it's great.
