Hi there? wanted to thank each one who took the time to answer my funnies questions.

here's come another one:
I'm going to bring my cell phone (Samsund Android). of course i want a local acount so I guess the way doing so is getting a local SIM -right?

If yes, from where can I buy? does that mean that i will have to sigh with AT&T for 3 years?

Thank you so so much.....

Your post is off topic for the Connecticut forum. I am going to move it to the Cell Phone threads on the Science and Technology forum. JayCT, Moderator

Can we assume your phone is an unlocked quad-band GSM phone? If so, you can just buy a prepaid sim card from T-Mobile and stick it in your phone when you get to the USA. You can buy a Go Phone sim card too and I believe that will work. But you can't use a sim card from a TracFone since those are tied to the phone and won't work if you try to put the sim card in an unlocked phone. There are probably other GSM carriers that sell sim cards that will work too, but I'm not familiar with them.

With a sim card on a prepaid pay-as-you-go plan, you won't need to sign up for a contract.
