Check out Airvoice, Straight Talk, and T-Mobile. They have good prices for prepaid.

first off, it is a Iphone 5S, locked to att and since they never were a customer for att the phone cannot be unlocked, current unlock policy is only available for a current or previous att customer, second  the phone will be useless when they return home since it is locked to the carrier and cannot be unlocked

Straight Talk is still an option since it actually uses the AT&T network and will work with AT&T compatible phones, locked or not.


As of July, at least, Straight Talk no longer provided SIM cards for iPhones. That was major reason for me to swtich back from Straight Talk to Go Phone.

They do sell sims for iphones, just has to be an iphone 4s or earlier model because they only seem to sell regular size and micro-sims, no nano-sims.

I stand corrected. It actually appears they support the 5, too. I couldn't find that info in July when someone gave me an iPhone, which is why I actually switched back to GoPhone. Oh well, the service is much better with AT&T, anyway!
