We are a family of 6 Aussies who will be on holiday in the USA for approx 6 weeks this December . On past holidays to Europe we have been crucified with the Global Roaming ripoff arranged here in Australia using our own phones.
I have heard it will be better for us to purchase sim cards or even buy prepaid phones in the USA when we arrive as that will be much cheaper . My wife and I have older phones -- our children have much newer models - the son has an iphone. Can anyone give us some advice as to what might be best for us . We will need to make sure we can keep in contact as we seperate on various outings. The iphone would also be useful if we can access data like google maps as we drive around getting lost .
I have also had advice that Net10 have a good deal ?? Can anyone enlighten us on this ?
Any advice would be most appreciated .
