Best prepaid dataplan for iPhone 5

Hello.

I need some help.
I'm going to the US for 14 days and I need a prepaid dataplan for my iPhone 5.
I have looked on Red Pocket and Straight Talk. What is the best to get? Can I get a nano-sim on Straight talk?

I need at least 1GB of data.

Please help me out.

Thank you so much.

You are going to need to buy a nano sim cutter to use it on straight talk. They may have changed it in the past month, since they released the iphone 5.

You can get a Net 10 card and cut it to fit an iPhone 5.

Scam alert! iPhone 5 is in stock on Apple's Singapore web site. You have multiple threads wanting to buy iPhones. Next time you try a scam choose a country where iPhone 5 is not available!

Straight talk requires ordering the SIM card online so that may not be favorable to you. You could go with att unlimited everything and 1gb data for $65. America does not have good prepaid plans like in Europe or Asia.

The simplest and easiest option is to either call AT&T, or visit one of their stores or authorized retailers (Best Buy) when you get there and let them handle it for you.

Red Pocket would be my second choice.

T-Mobile has prepaid nano SIMs, but their coverage isn't the greatest and they're still refarming their network so... you might be stuck on EDGE... or worse.

Otherwise, you'll need to cut your own nano SIM.

Doesn't t-mobile have an unlimited everything plan or did they get rid of that?

Thank you all.

I'm fine with ordering the sim online. I see that Red Pocket have some cheap ones on Ebay.

I just don't want to cut the card myself. I have already ruined a simcardreader in one phone because I'm so bad at it..

I find the AT&T plan a little expensive?

Thank you again.
