Reply To: US SIM card – help needed

Back to Forum


I’ll shortly be going to the US, landing at JFK and as I have to pay my own phone bills I’m looking to reduce the costs.

My basic need is for data rather than talk time or sms’s as I can use Viber, WhatsApp etc for calling the family.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a prepaid SIM card and can I buy it when I arrive at JFK?

I’d be grateful for any help and advice.

PS. There’s no time to buy a card from a UK based provider as there is not enough time to receive it before I leave, so I’m really looking for a US solution.
