These packages are the reason I've been keeping my Paygo SIM alive. Now that my Canadian postpaid carrier includes US voice and text in my monthly package, there's really no advantage to keeping this SIM alive.


CA: SaskTel, Wind postpaid; Rogers, Bell postpaid iPad flex plans; US: T-Mobile postpaid data, prepaid voice; PureTalk (AT&T MVNO) prepaid voice/data; AT&T prepaid iPad plan

Hardware: Too much but notably iPhone 5, iPad Mini Retina LTE, Moto G LTE (N.A. version), iPhone 4. All unlocked.

is there any prepaid data packages left for USA?
My collegue will be on holiday there in a few weeks and asked me for a usable SIM card.
Seems like using a roaming card is the best choice for USA now???

Tmobile and all the various MVNO's have data packages.

See their pay by the day and prepaid plans - Prepaid Cell Plans | No Contract Plans | Text, Talk or Web | T-Mobile

Be aware that T-Mobile's UMTS network (which they call it "4G" since it supports HSPA+) runs on the AWS band (1700 MHz for uplink and 2100 MHz for downlink) which very few European phones support (UMTS2100 is not compatible!). So your colleague may be confined to their GSM network and EDGE speed.


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
