I haven't used the "Browser" yet on my StraightTalk phone (just got it recently) because I'm near WiFi and have my laptop 95% of the time. I just got the $30 a month plan so I don't have unlimited data. One thing to consider, that I didn't know till I got it, is that picture messaging uses data as well as texts. Straight Talk's $45 a month plan has unlimited talk/text/data. You could also consider a Verizon pay-as-you go, $50 a month with unlimited talk/text/web.

If you're that concerned about having your house empty, though, I second the suggestion to get a house sitter. Yes, you can check the webcams when you're away, but what can you do about it in Florida? Having a person going and staying at the house, or even just checking in on it every day, will be a great deterrent. Also, you can put some lamps on timers to come on/go off in the evening so it looks like someone is home. Stop your mail, have UPS/FedEx hold any deliveries, etc. till you get home.
