Using at&t prepaid sim cards as US visitor
Edited by phou on May 3, 2012 at 6:16:29 PM

Hi everyone! I know this has been asked before, but since evidently there have been changes in tariffs im going to ask again.

 

Im going to spend 2 months in the US and i'm looking for a SIM card to use in my smartphone (motorola defy) mainly for web use (skype/email/google maps).

 

The $25 Monthly GoPhone Plan with added $15 200 mb data package seems ok.

However, $40/mo is still pricey and im not sure if i'll need the $25 1GB package...

 

I've also considered using the International Long Distance Package but i'm not sure if it is compatible with all plans.

 

Do you guys see any other options for me?

Will at&t sim card, services work on my phone?

 

thanks in advance

stefan

I'm interested in this matter too, with an AT&t sim card, will I get 3g network connection or only Edge? (is not an at&t branded phone)

If your phone is unlocked and supports UMTS/WCDMA 850/1900, then yeah, it should work on AT&T 3G.
