    Depends on what your needs are. If you're okay with a low minute plan but need a lot of data, there's a $30 plan from T-Mobile: 5GB, unlimited text, 100 minutes. Their network is the best around large cities, and generally horrible away from such places.

    Then there's Cricket Wireless, which has an unlimited talk, text and 2.5GB high speed data plan for $50, $45 if you set up auto-pay. They run on a significantly better network that TMO's, but they cap speeds at 4mbps for 3G/HSPA+, and 8mbps for LTE.

    Are you visiting the US? If so, how long?

    Just for two months. I bought the Q5 in India, will that matter?

    Ask people living in the area if there are coverage "holes" for any particular carrier. Coverage quality can vary by carrier in the US.

    Hmm. It could. If it's the SQR100-2 or the -3 model and you want LTE in the States, forget about it. Also, if it's the -2 or the -3, that will work better on AT&T/AT&T based prepaid networks.

    Use ATT, better overall with balanced coverage and will def work with most overseas phones.

    OK. So LTE is completely out of the picture. I would recommend Cricket Wireless then, although T-Mobile could work.

    What are your needs? Do you need a lot of data? A lot of talk time and little data? A decent amount of both?

    Yeah, I would say a moderate amount of both.

    Thanks for your help by the way. When I called some of these providers in the States, they were pretty much clueless.
