Taking UK iPhone to USA

Hi,

Does anyone know if you can take an unlocked handset to the USA and get a sim only deal from ATT (like the simplicity tariffs in the UK).

I was thinking about buying the next iPhone on PAYG outright and wondered if I went to the USA if I could take this phone to ATT to use or if I would have to sell it and get a new phone from ATT.

Best

Aaron

If it's unlocked you'll be able to use it on either AT&T or T-Mobile when you're here in the states. Both companies offer pay as you go or monthly plans that you can choose from. =)

EDIT: Wait are you talking about an unlocked iPhone or some other phone? Any unlocked quad-band phone will work in the USA. The iPhone and many other popular phones are quad.
