Can anyone suggest a prepaid cell plan that includes internet data? I would prefer to buy just the sim card and use my cell phone. Thanks.

Here in the States, prepaid phones are sold complete with SIM installed, not "open" for you to put yours in. Sometimes a SIM might work with an existing phone, but it's hit and miss and you'll need to check with the service provider to make sure it'll work.

More popular prepaid providers:

Straight Talk by Walmart

* Note, all three above are owned by the tracfone company, though operated in slightly different ways. Typcially, these have the better coverage in the metro Atlanta area, especially Straight Talk, because it uses the Verizon network to piggyback calls - but the web service on the phones are a watered-down version and usually not full HTML.

Other options:

Prepaid Plans and Prepaid Cell Phones - Verizon Wireless
Unsupported Browser (http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/plans/prepaid-plans-overview.aspx - broken link) (funky link - TMobile)
No Contract Prepaid Cell Phones & Unlimited Plan | Boost Mobile | unwronged™
Prepaid Cell Phone Service and Pay as You Go | Virgin Mobile

You can go into most BestBuy stores locally and most of them have a small wall filled with prepaid phones/plans and you can sign up for them right there.
