Beck Posted July 22, 2010 Share Posted July 22, 2010 So I'm getting on a plane to the States on Monday night (yowzers! I swear that just last week, the trip was still two months away!) and I'm starting to think about the list of things I need to sort out pretty fast on arrival. One of them is a cell phone. I'm coming into Texas (I'll be studying in Austin) via a week or so of travel, so right now my plan is to get a very cheap prepaid card when I arrive and buy myself a bit of time to figure out what will actually work for me longer-term, in terms of usage, budget, coverage in the area, etc. However, I'm using the process of researching the first two as a way of putting off packing .. and I'm kinda lost and confused. Can someone give me a rundown of US Cell Phones For Dummies Australians? What's this 'minutes' thing? And a related question - I'm bringing my non-carrier-locked iPhone with me - how prevalent is public wireless in the States? Would I get away without data on my phone, just relying on wireless? (And yup ... I know this is likely to be geographically dependent. But maybe somebody can give specific advice.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
