Those are introductory offers, for a short period only. The 25/5 plan in this deal is not an introductory offer. Most people aren't...

Check ebay and AliExpress too, it may be available cheaper there. There are also clones available, e.g. "Zotac" brand.

If you search for "wifi elm327", you'll find ones that work with iOS.

Agreed. I've seen companies get stung by counterfeit parts, causing reputational damage and large costs to fix.

Yep, you'll find either a mummified mouse, or a skeleton and dust if you leave it a few years. Actually I think most mice are smart enough...
