    I'm coming in to the US for about a month - is there anyway to get a pre-paid or monthly data/voice service in California for my iPhone? I don't know if I can live without 3G data services while I am out and about and don't want to try and track down wi-fi hot spots all the time in cities I'm not that familiar with.

    On the flipside is their a California wide Wi-Fi service that has tons of hot spots? Or am I better with a monthly data plan if there is such a thing?

    Thanks for your help y'all!

    Nope. I don't think that's possible unless you jailbreak and unlock.

    Check on AT&Ts site for GoPhone plans. There used to be a unlimited option, that has been discontinued, but there are other options still available.

    Thanks Slapguts - it seems I can get a plan at AT&T - a voice plan for $45/40 minutes and a unlimited data plan for $30 a month - not cheap but it is flexible. Thanks you're a saviour.
