    I jsut got my iPhone a week ago, unlocked it with pwned, and now its running with Rogers.

    I am going for a trip to New York for a week and I would like to be able to use my iPhone in the states without getting massive roaming charges from rogers. I'm hoping I could get some kind of pre-paid plan to last me for the week but I have no knowledge about the US mobile carriers.

    My question is what carrier should I go with, what prepaid card should I get, and do any of these plans have EDGE included(possible unlimited)? Are these prepaid cards jsut sims that you pop in? Anybody have any experience with this?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Just shut off your edge and use it when you're on wifi.
    Theres tons of them in NY.

    AT&T has (or at least, had) a pre-paid voice plan that didn't require providing information to AT&T. It didn't have EDGE though.

    But as a previous poster pointed out, you can turn off your EDGE and just use Wifi.
