    So...I have an Iphone 5 and need a sim card that I can use for 1 week (or better still everytime I visit the Us / Every 2-4 months or so...)

    I'd like to make calls to other US numbers...and would be nice to be able surf the JD on the move too...

    So, what shops, sorry Store, do I go to to get one at...
    Roughly how much am I looking at...
    Any good (or bad) deals or good experiences you guys have had with no contract sims...

    Idealy i'm looking for a store I can walk into, thrust $$$ in the hands of someone who can deal with it for me as soon as I hit NYC, and walk out and call and surf with the minimum of hastle...

    :thumbsup:

    I'm going to keep you busy grinding. ...

    And when you aren't grinding, we're going to be drinking.

    No one wants a drunkass knifemaker calling them :ross:

    I would go with Ting. It's super cheap and the sim cards are only like $14 for the iPhone. I just signed up with them, but if you use my referral, or someone from Ting already then you and the person that referred you both get credits. Below is my referral button.

    :link:

    You pay $6 per month per phone then whatever services you end up using. see rates link below.

    I use wifi for most things, so my bill is only like $9 per month as I would be using the 0-100 mins for calls only($3).

    I use straight talk, and am happy with it. I don't, however, use all that much roaming internet time as I have wifi at home and work.
    You may be able to get your sim card by mail and have it all set up via the interwebs before you arrive.

    Thanks for The referals...I should have wifi too for some places but not everywhere....

    I will be heading straight from Kazakhstan (with a hangover for sure) so no mail/ interweb option for me...bricks and mortar store for sure...!

    ATT GoPhone. $60 for a month prepaid of domestic calling, domestic texting, and 2GB of internet use. There is a small set up fee, I believe. Unlocked sim. Go into any ATT store or Radio Shack store.
