Good thing I found this thread.
I have pretty much the same question. I will be visiting the US for a month and a half later this year. I would like to buy a prepaid SIM card to use in my own phone. I would like to do this with the least possible hassle, like I don't want this mailed to me, or pick it up somewhere I have to travel far, sign it and / or mail it somewhere, or have a phone and other stuff included. Would be best if I could purchase it at the airport, or some electronics store like BestBuy. Just a plain SIM card.
I'd use it for occasional phone calls (not a lot, maybe 5 minutes every other day) and mostly data connections.
Here in Germany, I'd just walk into any supermarket or other store, buy a starter pack and get my SIM card with some minutes included, with a plan that charges me about 8c per minute and 24c per MB traffic.
Is there a similar thing in the USA?
I think my question is pretty much the same thing the thread starter is asking for.
Thanks for your help!

from looking at T-Mobiles pre-paid plans I've come to the conclusion that the sidekick prepaid makes most sense for the data traveller. With additional calls charged at 20c per minute, it sounds rather reasonable. - ALTHOUGH, is this a plan with no contract? I don't seem to see how many months you need to stay connected with them. If its not then, there doesn't seem to be any i-phone (+data)prepaid plans available anymore. (as of 11th August)
As we don't have the 'sidekick' here in Aus, is this something thats basically a phone used primarily for txting + web use more so than actual calls? Will this plan essentially work for all mobiles that have web access ?
And yes, the i-phone is unlocked.
