    So, I'm heading to the states in July, mainly the Orlando area and disneyworld area, and currently I have a iphone 5 with virgin mobile canada, it's unlocked and was purchased in October. And by looking at the options, I think T-Mobile is the best choice. My questions are, will my non AWS iPhone work? Can I get a AWS iPhone? What is the best carrier to use in the Orlando area on prepaid with good service.

    I will be using it mainly for data, and won't need more than maybe 6 gigs (what am I going to do when I'm in line for rides?!) I won't need more than 50 minutes of talk, and maybe a little text.

    HELP?

    T-Mobile has its network refarmed in Orlando, i just drove through a couple months ago. You will be fine. So it wouldn't be necessary to have an AWS iPhone.

    If you need 6gb if data then get the $70 prepaid plan. It's unlimited "4G" HSPA+

    Your easiest bet would be to sign up with Roam Mobility (they piggy back on tmobile's network). $4 per day and you can get set up in Canada.
