Re: Travelling to the USA

As I said previously, you will get 3g on a Three UK sim but if you want 4g you'll need a US sim.

Re: Travelling to the USA

You are THE MAN Dan and it's good to see someone doing theeir research before they go and coming here for advice. I hate to think what customer service or live chat would have told you....

Re: Travelling to the USA

@jonsie I do try!

 

I have some more info whilst talking to T-mobile: 

 The Tourist Plan includes: unlimited data, with up to 2 GB 4G LTE data on your smartphone, unlimited domestic and international texting in the US to 140+ countries and destinations, 1,000 minutes of domestic talk within the US and free SIM card for your unlocked phone

 

For more than 2 Gb ( am there for 2 weeks)  I need to be looking at  

 

would suggest you getting a monthly prepaid plan. We do have the Simple Choice and Simply Prepaid Monthly plan option available here in T-Mobile. With the Simple Choice plan, it starts up with 2GB data plan for 50 per month before taxes. You can also select 6GB for $65/mo (plus taxes), 10GB for $80 /mo (plus taxes) and Unlimited data for $95/mo (plus taxes). With our Simply Prepaid plan, you may choose from 3GB for $40/mo (plus taxes), 5GB for $50/mo (plus taxes) and 10GB for $60/mo plus taxes.

 

Now I got to figure which one to use
