T-Mobile, used with a Mobile Hotspot
Most tourists will spend most of their time in the bigger cities or maybe staying with friends or relatives in a suburban area. If that is the situation then T-Mobile is a good choice. A T-Mobile SIM card will be fifteen dollars, but you probably won’t be able to get one at the airport. Buy from a T-Mobile physical store. Getting a T-Mobile SIM from a non-T-Mobile store can be a problem because new security procedures require the authorised seller to scan the kit’s code using equipment authorised to activate the SIM. Another option might be the Nano prepaid SIM card USA.
You could buy a data pass and the choices will be: one-day 500 MB will cost five dollars, seven day 1GB will be en dollars, and thirty-day 3GB at a cost of thirty dollars.
Another option would be to remove the SIM card from the MF61 and then put it into the unlocked phone and for that you would need to check that the APN setting on your phone is wither epc.tmobile.com or fast.t-mobile.com a longer battery life is the payoff with the MF61 offering four hours of battery life.
There are many ways to get connected and one of them - T-Mobile AT&T offer pretty good coverage in large cities. If you are venturing to more remote areas, a prepaid AT&T SIM card might be the right way to go.
