Phone calls

Just looked up Vodafone USA tarrif - bloody hell!

Vodafone Passport does not work in the USA (75p per call + UK call rate)

Instead you have...
Making a call 125p per min
Receiving a call 99p per min

And data is £10 per Mb (at home it is £2 and in Europe it is £4)

Does anyone know if you can buy USA pay-as-you-go sims?

Yes, you can.

But don't forget most US phones and networks are CDMA and so don't use SIM cards, so it may be a little harder to find the GSM PAYG SIM card. Definitely worth contacting Verizon, Cingular, Sprint or whoever before you travel and possibly buying online.

And that 99p/min charge for receiving Vodaphone calls ... remember that in the US cell phone users pay to receive all calls (unlike calls within the UK where the person making the call gets the full charge) ... so even with a US SIM and setup for your local area, you will still pay if someone phones you.

But you'll pay something like 35 cents a minute, not two bucks!

I can't remember how much the Cingular SIMs were either. :-/

Cingular definitely do pay-as-you-go SIM only deals. Can't remember how much they are exactly, but certainly not terrifying.
