Found this on t-mobile usb site, may help some on holidays this year. 30 Dollars 2Gb date calls and texts for 21days plus tax. Texts are international as well.
For everybody else this is something to keep in mind if you plan on buying:
"To keep information secure, only U.S. credit cards can be used to purchase the kit. Ask friends and family to help you, or purchase a U.S. MasterCard® or Visa® gift card."
Be careful with this offer. I tried to get it last week and was told in the T mobile shop it's online only. You'll need to buy it in advance so friends or family over there will have to order it for you. I ended up paying $69 in store for the best available plan for my stay.
Could you use one of the An Post madtercards to buy it I wonder?
Just get a free 3 UK sim, they've 3 like home in the U.S so you are billed as normal.
If you have a data allowance it works as normal over there, along with calls/texts.
Costs £10 for 1GB plan, £20 for 12GB or else All you can eat for £25.
I keep one handy for countries my 3 Ireland sim hasnt got 3 like home in.
Even in America?
The link from the Three.ie doesn't mention that the US is included in the 3 Like Home offering.
"Accessing internet on your mobile abroad.

Yes. Theyve 42 destinations compared to our 6
Thats because I said 3 UK
Ahhhh my apologies. Very good to know!! Thank you for highlighting this. Will save me a few quid in the future
I think they may have given you the wrong info - it states on the link in the first post that you can pick it up in any T-Mobile store and I did just that in October last year. Walked into a small, local store in Queens (NY) and walked out 10 minutes later with the SIM in my phone, all set up. Worked great in NY, network was a bit patchy down in Miami though.
ah if i'd known this three weeks ago! bloody awkward relying on wifi in the states.
This is definitely the way to go. Used it just over a year ago in NYC with all you can eat data for £15 top up. Price has gone up since but still the best way to go imo.
Has anyone had any experience using the TMobile network in the States on a oneplus 3t? I checked the phone bands to see if it would work ok and saw it doesn't work on all the 3g frequencies.
I did get the feeling the girl hadn't a clue what I was on about. Probably should have printed out a screen grab of the offer. I was just after getting off the flight in Chicago and was wrecked tired so maybe I wasn't making sense. Good to know though for next time. T mobile network was great though, got 4g nearly everywhere which I was surprised at.
Last time I picked up one of these in my local Walmart. Very straightforward.
