    Question regarding AT&T daily Prepaid ...

    Hi ...
    Hope you guys can give me, an out-of-country visitor, some advice for the most economical use while I'm in the States. I will be in Florida for a week in June, and in Hawaii/California for two weeks in November. I've determined that AT&T daily Prepaid is probably the best choice ($2/day), but since I've never done this before, I am unsure of the steps of how to approach this.
    I have an unlocked Dell Streak (Rogers Wireless/Canada) which I currently use on Telus, my provider. I know At&T bands are compatible. This is what I think the steps I should do:
    - Acquire an AT&T SIM (Ebay ? AT&T store ?)
    - Activate it to get a phone number
    - Log to online account to select rate plan & put in money
    - For daily plan, any time I use it, it will deduct $2 for that day
    - My balance is good for 30 days if I put in the minimum amount

    Could you please point out if I missed anything ?
    What is the minimum amount I can put in ? $10 ?

    Thanks in advance for any help !
    So many gadgets, so little $$

    SIM can be acquired on eBay and similar sites, they're a dime a dozen. Don't pay more than a buck or two.

    Balance is the only issue. You need to add $25 to get 90 days expiration. Less than that is 30 days only. Or a $100 refill gets you the entire year (365 days).

    Minimum refill is $15 good for 30 days.

    When you activate the sim it should ask you for the plan you want and you don't need to add
    money to your account right away as far as I know.

    Thanks all for your answers ...
    I will just pick up a SIM and activate it before my trip. I will add the minimum ($15 ?) since my trips are quite short ... one week and two weeks.
