What would be the cheapest plan for 450 minutes and 450 MB per month? (Very little text.)

Smartphone, preferably GSM but will consider non-GSM if much cheaper. No contract (but can be either Pre or Post paid.) No phone needed.

How are you using 1GB on a non-smartphone! (I know it "can" be done)
I meant 1GB on the Smartphone and none on the other!
