As you can tell , I have no darn clue!! therefore, stay calm yáll. lol. and now my keyboard is giving me that lil sign above the a?? oh my whats up with that? oy

thanks all

If you're going to a reasonable place (tucson, phoenix, flagstaff...) I'd go with tmobile. Data would be slower but they have good pre paid rates.

TMo does prepaid plans: http://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/prepaid-plans

You should check their coverage map for the area though, you don't want to be stuck for 2 months with a crappy signal.

I can't believe it, no NHL and the Cancuks are heading to Arizona...

Amen. It's the only American sport I haven't seen live yet since moving from England.
