Sim card

I'm travelling to Las Vegas, San Francisco and Hawaii next week till November 25.

I have bought an unlocked samsung galaxy young mobile phone so that I can buy a SIM card in the states to make international phone calls home to UK as well as text and use data to look at trip advisor and maps when on holiday. As I believe this to be the inexpensive option.

I've browsed the net and quite frankly I'm quite confused. I think the right way is to stick with AT&T or Tmobile for coverage purposes.

Will I need 3 different phone numbers to cover my holiday destination or will one number suffice. Couldn't see anything on the net to answer this question.

Please help

Thanks in advance

The good news is that all three places are part of the US and there are no roaming charges within the US and yes that includes HI. Only 1 SIM card is needed. T-Mobile or AT&T are the way to go, go to a tMoble store and they will set you up

The next few posts will be from some folks promising great service with xsimx.com I would ignore them and keep it simple
