Prepaid sim data only

Hi,

Next month I will be in the us for 2 weeks (I will visit los angeles, san francisco and san diego). I'd like to use my italian phone with a prepaid sim, but I don't need sms and voice calls. I'd like to use whatsapp and skype. Is there a prepaid sim card with 1 GB of data included?

Nope....Do you have an Apple IPad ??
Maybe an IPad is what you need for travel to USA for no SMS & Voice call.

Your best bet is to obtain a prepaid SIM card for your device, activate it, and select the $60 monthly unlimited talk and text plan which includes 2.5 GB of data. I know it's expensive for only 2 weeks and I know that you do not want or need unlimited talk and text, but it is the only plan that offers such a large standard allotment of data. Unless you can settle for 500MB of data included in the $40 monthly plan, the $60 plan looks like your best option.

Get a Hotspot device that can connect you to your device with Internet service, but you will need to pay for the Hotspot device.

Hope this help.
