I'm kinda bummed that I saw the jailbreak/unlock was available only COMING BACK from California a couple of days ago - I sure could of used it then. But I want to be prepared for my next trip.
You can pick SIM's up in phone stores in the US, or wal-mart even. Sometimes its actually cheaper to buy the pay-as-you-go crap phones from Wal-Mart just for the SIM and free minutes. Thats what I usually do when I go on business.
It doesnt HAVE to be pay as you go, if you were doing a multi-month trip, a plan may be a better option. Just be sure to tell the company up front you only need cellular service for X time period, to avoid penalties.
Providers are just like up here, you have to shop around. AT&T, Verizon, and probably a dozen other phone companies exist in major city centers. Do your homework online before your trip to get the best rate.
