The question isn’t what sim, it’s what plan. Since data is your primary need, either the $50 8GB plan or $35 1GB plan would fit best. You would need to determine if 1GB is sufficient for your 4 days of usage. Prepaid plans are here: https://www.att.com/prepaid/plans.html

Re: Prepaid SIM Card for Tourists

First of all, thank you for the kind and quick reply. If I choose one of those prepaid plans, shall I have to disactivate the plan at the end of the 4 days? Thank you again.

If you give them your credit card info. Yes, you do need to disactivate the plan.
You need to make sure you only pay for what you need and NO credit card !!!

The plans are for 30 days. As long as you don’t sign up for automatic renewal, the plan will expire after 30 days. No need to deactivate it, you just need to ensure you don’t keep paying for it.
