Default US Data - 22-06-2007, 11:28

Next week I'll go to California, and I need to connect, with my phone, to the web without limits. I have a quadband phone with Gprs and Umts.
I see the vary prepaid plans of At&T and T-Mobile.

T-Mobile offer this:

"Sidekick® rates

Get unlimited e-mail, Web browsing, domestic instant messaging, and domestic text messaging for $1 per day, and spend only $0.15 per minute for nationwide calls."

So the question: is this the best plan there are in usa to connect without limits? Is possible to buy only sim? How to activate the plane? Hot to config the phone? On nokia site the us configurations are not ok...
And finally others plane and what are their limits?

Thanks a lot for the information!

Italy: Vodafone, Tim, 3, Wind, CoopVoce, UnoMobile
United Kingdom: O2, Vodafone

The prepaid Sidekick plan is pretty much the only prepaid I know of with AYCE (unlimited) data. You might want to check and search for prepaid and Sidekick to learn some of the trick to getting this plan set up. I'm not really familiar with it.

I'm pretty sure it's a WAP-only plan.

T-Mobile ToGo prepaid in general used to provide essentially unlimited tetherable GPRS access, but it was an error and not intended. The system has since been fixed to only allow basic WAP access and only to certain sites. The Sidekick can access any WAP site.

The best way to get cheap data access is going to be to use WiFi.

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.

Ampd mobile had prepaid data, but the company uses CDMA and has had serious financial problems. I'm not sure that this is a good deal
