Data-plan for the USA
I'll be living in the US for 6 months soon and I'm looking for a way to use my unlocked iPhone 4 on a pay-as-you-go plan with data. Do you guys know anything good?
This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
You can only use T-Mobile or AT&T. Note that they have different 3G frequencies, and you might have difficulties using 3G on T-Mobile. To the best of my knowledge these are the only GSM networks in the US.
Note that AT&T are very protective of their iPhones. They have a rule that if you put an iPhone on a non-iPhone plan they switch you to the iPhone plan automatically (they can tell which model you're using). I don't know if they allow iPhones on prepaid plans; they definitely don't sell any of their own this way. You could consider a month-to-month plan instead, and it would probably be cheaper if you're going to use a lot of data.
