    Firstly, I am sorry if this is the wrong forum and please feel free to move it.

    Now onto the main course, I am coming to the USA in July for 3 weeks and I am looking for a no contract way to use my iPhone, mainly Data with some calls and I thought that I would tap into the local knowledge for some help.

    The 'best' I have found so far, including a simcard is http://www.mrsimcard.com/iphone.html albiet very expensive for my short trip but any help would be appreciated.

    I have no idea what "Mr.SimCard" is trying to sell you, but his US plan according to your link is just T-Mobile.

    All you need is a factory unlocked iPhone. They're sold on Ebay if they're not sold in your particular country. When you come to the USA, put in a sim from either AT&T or T-Mobile (pay as you go works, as far as I know) and you're done. You're not under contract unless you get an American iPhone directly from AT&T/Apple.

    You will need to get a pre-paid SIM card with T-Mobile; if you use 3.1.x and later software, AT&T prepaid will not work.
