    Hi,

    I'll be in Montauk L.I. and Santa Fe NM for two and a half weeks and want to use my unlocked iPhone 4G while I am there. Cheap is what I want, and usage will be light.

    Who has the best deal on limited no-contract service?

    It would be great to have visual voice mail and data and the like, but GSM service in those locations is the absolute requirement.

    FWIW, AT&T has service in both locations, and I know that T-Mobile has service in Santa Fe and probably in Montauk.

    Go to a AT&T store and ask for a "Pay as you go" SIM. Should be able to buy one for $25, $50, etc...

    Not sure about international rates, but a daily unlimited inside the US is $3 per day it is used.

    You'll get a new number.

    It might be best to avoid telling them you're going to use it on an iphone, because there have been occasions when AT&T doesn't want you to use the pay as you go on an iphone. Although for a foreigner around for only 2 weeks they might not care.
