Prepaid Nano-SIM for iPhone 5?

Hi! I'm going to USA for two months and I will need a SIM mainly for incoming calls, but messages is definitely what I'm going to use the most. I'm not looking for data usage or things like this, so I was wondering which is the best and cheapest option to get a prepaid nano sim card just for using it for that period of time. I already have an unlocked iPhone 5, so the only thing I need is the SIM.

Thanks!

Simply Talk - cut it down to nano size.

Go to a Tmobile store and activate on their $50 unlimited prepaid plan. They should have nano sims in stock.

Just get the micro / normal sim and cut it with cutter. That's what I did.

Ok, thanks.
I won't have any problem with the type of SIM they give me, and apart of that, what company and plan do you recommend me for what I need? I need the cheapest one because I'm not going to use it very much, but I still need it in case of emergency or specific occasions.
I'm asking this because looking in the web (AT&T, T-Mobile) I realise they give a prepaid plan but also paying a low range phone and I just need the SIM.

PS: Sorry for my bad english, hope you understand what I'm trying to say

I would say try either Straight Talk or prepaid T-Mobile.
