What are peoples opinions on current prepaid options in the US?
I'll be over there for a couple of months spending the majority of my time in the Phoenix area with brief stints in CA and also NY. Coverage isn't an issue, all the major players have strong (real world) signal in the areas I will be in.
I currently have an AT&T sim that I usually use on a pay as you go setup, but this is the first time I will be using a data hungry handset that I've come particularly fond of...
Obviously Verizon & Sprint aren't options and AT&T's prepaid deals w/data are not the greatest so I have been looking at T-Mobile.
Quite like the look of:
$30 USD for pre-paid monthly plan with 100mins + unlimited sms + unlimited data* (first 5gb at full speed).
I've got the Telecom version of the HTC Sensation (UMTS/HSPA 850/1900/2100) and if I recall, T-Mobile requires both the 1700 & 2100 bands for uplink & downlink. Since my Sensation doesn't have 1700, does that mean I would flat out not get 3G service?
They also have the UMTS/HSPA 1900mhz band operating in some areas, but unfortunately the coverage map page is giving me a 404 error at the mo.
Will have internet at where I am staying just would like to have 3G access while out and about. Any info or recommendations are much appreciated!
