Prepaid card with data option
 
Hello,

I'm going to visit my grand-uncle in North Tonawandy, NY in June/July (4 weeks) and we're going to be in NY City for a week.

I'd like to use my iPhone 3G to check emails and send/receive calls & SMS by using a prepaid card. Is there any recommendation for the state of NY? Never been there before and I have no idea what's best for me. I don't mind paying a bit of money but have to make sure that I have at least 100MB per month.

I'd like to pre-order a card and have it send to my uncle over there.

I'd be happy if you could give me a recommendation.

Best regards from Bonn, Germany,
Sebastian

I don't think that there are any prepaid (non-monthly) options for data. Did you find anything to accommodate you??

Your problem is that you have an iPhone. ATT has a 100 meg prepaid option, I've heard rumors that they are not letting the iPhone on it because too many people were using jailbroken ATT iPhones on it. ATT actually has a prepaid plan for the 2g iPhone, but is booting 3g users from it.

You might want to jump into this thread over at Howard's Forum (in the iPhone forum) where a Canadian (who frequently visits the State's) is asking the same thing as you:

HowardForums: Your Mobile Phone Community & Resource - Is there a way to get data on a prepaid plan for an unlocked iPhone 3g 3.0?

Many people have got their devices running on the T-Mobile USA prepaid Sidekick option, but there is some minor system tricking going on:

I've only heard of one prepaid SIM offering unlimited iPhone data in the US. I have never used it, but I did order a Digicel Jamaica from the seller and service was good.

Wow, I didn't know that this was going on, I'll have to check it out.
I have an Original iPhone with regular T-Mobile prepaid.
I don't think that is what the OP has though.
