I've just gone on holiday to the USA. Once I landed I updated my 2degrees settings and got the roaming working on AT&T no problemo.

My question is how much will I be charged for data on 2degrees roaming?
On their website it says $30/mb. But I used it yesterday (I got lost and needed Google Maps) and I still have plenty of credit left! I'm thinking perhaps I'm still using the 50mb data block I purchased before I left?

I've tried finding a prepaid sim to pop in my iPhone but no one would give me any help with this over here (I went to Cricket, Sprint, Wallmart and Target but not an actual AT&T store yet). They all said you have to buy a prepaid phone, you can't just get the sim card. I'm betting AT&T will say this too...

Go to an actual AT&T store and get yourself a prepay SIM and use it for your data needs. You won't regret.

Anywhere in the world $30/MB is very expensive.

Thanks freitasm, I did just that and went to an AT&T store and got my mobile sorted out. I'm now rocking an AT&T sim

It wasn't as easy as it sounds though because they won't allow you to get a prepay sim (no US provider will). So I had to get on a contract and put down a $500US deposit!

So to any other travelers to the US with an iPhone, be warned :)
