Question Blackberry data abroad (Visiting USA)

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All

I am after advice on using my Blackberry (8100) whilst in New York next week - there for 10 days only.

I cannot use my UK sim card whilst there to roam (and pay the huge costs that would come with doing so)

I would ideally love to be able to rent/buy a USA sim card with data enabled so I can use my berry to browse, do google chat and gmail.

I am not bothered about a phone number for voice or even necessarily a BIS service (I can use the gmail app with "normal" data)

Any suggestions and how how much it might cost.
