    You should be able to use your iPhone 4S in the US, but you'll probably need to enable international roaming by contacting your network. They might want you to pay a deposit before you go.

    More information on roaming:

    International data roaming costs are very high. You might be better off obtaining a T-Mobile USA or AT&T SIM if your iPhone is unlocked.

    I would definitely look for a short term sim card; data roaming charges are enormous.

    Stop into any AT&T store and sign up for a no contract plan. Cancel it after one month. Should cost you $30
