    I am in LA on holidays, and went to the AT&T shop to buy a simcard for my trip
    but they tell me, that it is not possible to get 3G data roaming service on my iphone4, they say that Apple has closed for that
    can anyone tell med how I get a sim card with data connection while I am here, dont care about the carrier, just need a simcard asap so I wont get ripped totally from my own carrier in Europa
    my phone is legal unlocked and jailbroken
    looks forward to hear from you
    thanks

    Check T-Mobile. Since your iPhone is unlocked, you can get a prepaid SIM card with them. You will need to change the APN settings for T-Mobile for data to work, but that is easy enough to do.

    You will not be able to get 3G on T-Mobile - it uses a different frequency than the iPhone's radio handles. Not sure why you were told you couldn't get it from AT&T - all you need is a pay as you go sim that includes data.

    AT&T probably told him that because they do not currently support the iPhone on their prepaid service, therefore will not set it up in the store. OP can always purchase a prepaid SIM on his own, but AT&T's prepaid data is very expensive.

    Edit: AT&T also throttles prepaid data for their smartphone users.
