Hi everyone. I'm going to Florida for 2 weeks in the summer and Im looking for the best prepaid data plan for my unlocked iPhone. I don't really want calls/texts... just the data! Any help is appreciated!

Hello,

Data on US-networks is (still) quite expensive. Not for the iphone, but for a connection via Huawei-USB-Modem stick, I did the following:

I went to an (real!) AT&T store and asked for a prepaid SIM. Just the SIM, w/o a phone. Then I asked to put the 200 MB option on it.

It took a while, then I got a SIM (for free) and the 200 MB activated. It was 19.99$ + tx.

Data is working with these settings:
APN: wap.cingular
No user, no pw needed

Skype is working, too!

With a E160 I get connected to the UMTS network, HSPDA is working, too!

Keep in mind that iPhones do only work on AT&T's 3G network, as all other American 3G networks are either on frequency bands unsupported by the iPhone or use a completely different radio technology (CDMA). You will still have 2G-coverage on GSM networks (AT&T and T-Mobile), but bandwidth will be < 200 KBit/s.


terminals: Samsung: Galaxy S5 DuoS (G900FD); BLU: Win HD LTE; Nokia: 1200; Asus: Fonepad 7 ME372CG; Huawei data: E3372, Vodafone R201, K3765, E1762;
postpaid: O2 on Business XL; prepaid: DE: Aldi Talk, Lidl; UK: 3; BG: MTel, vivacom; RU: MTS; RS: MTS; UAE: du Tourist SIM; INT'L: toggle mobile
VoIP: sipgate.de (German DID); sipgate.co.uk (British DID); ukddi.com (British DID); sipcall.ch (Swiss DID); megafon.bg (Bulgarian DID); InterVoip.com
