    They mention a micro-SIM in the Phone Compatibility Page, so you'll need to cut it down to a nano-SIM. Otherwise, it seems like it should work.

    I would go with them, but their coverage in my area is very spotty compared to AT&T.

    Ill be on board when I am back in the states! $45 with 5GB 3G data as compared to Straight talk who start bossing ppl around 3GB usage. Definitely looks promising and not to mention the international add ons.

    There's also the $30 T-Mobile 4G Prepaid Plan that has 100 minutes and 5GB of 4G data. And they have native nanosim cards.

    If your not a talker, best plan hands down.

    It says Up to 5GB of High-Speed web (5GB at 3G speeds, then 2G speeds for the rest of the cycle).

    is the 3G HSPA? I wonder how fast the speeds are in L.A for the $45 unlimited plan compared to ATT LTE... Sure I want cheap unlimited at $45 but is it much slower than ATT LTE?

    I still like the $30 a month with unlimited data since I dont call or sms a lot! I'm on imessage 100% now.

    You will have to find out if Tmobile has refarmed their 3G network in your area.
    If not you will get stuck with slow 2G Edge data.
    What speeds do you get now with AT&T LTE? LTE is faster than both 3G and HSPA+

    I don't have ATT LTE; but I tried it in store a few days ago. The store is like a mile away from my house and it was blazing fast. I played with the iphone5 and S3 in store and they were both amazing fast!

    I currently use Tmobile G3 on a 5 year old phone and its slower than death. Takes like 40 seconds to load a page. Could be my phone too cause its old.

    You will have to check them both out locally.
    Find someone that has an iphone on tmobile in your area and see if they get 3G or edge and what kind of data speeds they get.
    AT&T LTE is very fast if you have it available.
