Trademe is useless in this regard so here I go.


I am taking a trip to the USA in July and I will be taking my 3GS with me, as I will want a new sim card to avoid Vodafones expensive charges, who should I go with? 

I am mainly looking for data with a few calls, and the only thing I have found that is decent so far is although it is quite expensive $80usd for unlimited data, text and 500mins of calls (only a 3 week trip and i really only need unlimited data and a few calls)


Any ideas? I have to say it would be dam handy if I could get the $29.99 iPad internet price especially as it is unlimited and no contract lol

After a fair bit of searching it looks like the MrSimcard is the best as T-Mobile wont provide that service without purchasing some sort of phone from them in order to get the sim card.
