    So I am going to NYC in a couple of weeks and I am taking an unlocked iPhone 4S with me (recently purchased), I used to have a T-Mobile USA sim but I have since lost it and I'd prefer 3G over Edge any so would most likely have had to buy a new sim.

    Is it possible to walk into an AT&T store and buy just a Go-Phone mirco-sim? I understand I have to buy a separate data pack when I opt for my plan and is it insert and play or do I have to mess around with settings?

    Cheers :)

    You'd probably be better ordering a red pocket sim off ebay UK. They are an AT&T MVNO. Use them every time I go to USA.

    I would but the data you get with the plans look terrible 25/mb for $22.99/15 days :eek: I'd eat up 25/mb easily with Facebook, Spotify and Twitter... most likely Spotify alone :p

    The paygo sim is easy - they'll give it to you free in store, and you can top up at any time. (They'll also tell you iPhone data doesnt work - but you can add data after, and for it to work you have to modify the apn)

    But recently they made changes to paygo - you need to be on $25 monthly plan to be able to add a data option.

    I'll look into it :)
    How would I change the APN?

    I can live with that :)

    Depending on current carrier the apn is accessible under Settings -> General -> Network.

    Otherwise easy way (what I usually do) is change it by visiting unlockit.co.nz on the phone. You can quickly choose country and carrier and it'll make a profile that gets installed to update apn.
