Thumbs down prepaid card in USA

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry Curve 8520 and I live in Brazil (GSM - VIVO). Now I'm going to Orlando - Florida for two weeks, and I want to use my cell with an american prepaid card, just for cell calls (no internet or data planes), because I don't want to pay the roaming taxes to calls or web. What shoud I do? It's enough to retire my card/chip and change for another in there? Where shoud I buy it, AT&T or some else? If I know what to do, I can see the values of the internationals calls.
Thank you,

I would recommend going to Best Buy and purchasing a card from h2o. It's inexpensive and the easiest to set up.

You will also have to get your phone unlocked before getting a SIM card for it.
