You can't buy SIM cards at JFK Airport. You have to go to an AT&T or T-Mobile store, and there are none in JFK airport.

Why not buy one before you go to NYC from the wonder that is eBay.

That means then you'll be all set for when you hit NYC, and can start using your phone straight away.

I have an unlocked iphone 4 here in Canada. Does ATT sell micro sims for 30 days or so at a fixed rate?

There IS a phone store that has SIM cards at JFK. ( I am blanking on whether it is AT&T or T-Mobile.) I kept my nephew and his wife there company a few weeks ago and noticed it. Knowing the question comes up on this forum I deliberately went in and asked! It is in Terminal 4. It is near the baggage storage place. When you leave the secure area you turn right and it is on your right. I do not know how early or late it is open. I was there at around 7:30 PM on a Wed. --it did look like a new store!

CanadianBoys - AT&T do not "support" pay as you go for iPhones. All is not lost though, you just have to do things manually - http://www.m4rkm.com/iPhone

Very Much Obliged M4RKM. I left it too late to order an AT&T via eBay, so your guide is printed and added to the pile of useful docs I'm taking with me.

Cheers,
