The choices you'll have available for "feature options" have been known to vary depending on which voice plan you're signed up for. Yes, with the Go-Phone $2.00 per day unlimited talk and text, there's only two choices available to add for data features, the 1 MB for $4.99 and the 100MB for $19.99.

Using up your prepaid data features data and continuing data use without purchasing another data feature package is a sure fire way to sap any remainig funds out of your go-phone account. One day out of the blue, you'll be surprised and suddenly forced to add funds in order to cover a $2.00 daily voice fee so you can make a call. Overage fees charged by the kb are deducted from your Go-Phone account balance as you use them, on the fly, the same way purchases of messaging and data features are deducted at the time you order them.
Will 100 MB be enough to cover your data use for a week, that's impossible for anyone but you to determine. Based on my own usage, I can give you some insight. Without streaming more than a tidbit or two of video, and doing one or two downloads a month from You Tube, I use around 350 MB of data per month That's for email, web browsing which I do some of each day, and of course the Palm Profile backups and cloud updates which happen automatically. These days my usage is different than it used to be. Now-a-days, I stream video daily and download videos from You Tube on a regular basis. This pattern of use has brought my usage up to 1.5 GB of data per month.
From what I can tell based on tracking of my prior and current data use, I suspect you can get by with 100 MB for the week as long as you refrain for streaming any video, stream a minimal amount of audio ( i mean minimal as in avoid it if you can), and don't download any videos from You Tube. If you can live within these basic constraints, you can probably get by with the 100 MB data feature for the week. You may find after a day or two of checking you r use that you have enough padding to do more thngs like stream audio and maybe a little video here and there. Just remember to check your data usage daily so if you find you are close to running out, you can reup by adding a data package before your current allotment is wiped out.
