I live in Canada and will be spending the month of August in the USA. Is it possible to purchase a prepaid SIM to use in my unlocked iPhone while I’m in the States? I notice that the available prepaid plans appear to be paid monthly on a recurring basis, but I only need service for one month. Can I do that?

Additionally, can I pay for the prepaid using a Canadian credit card?

Thanks!

Have you verified your iPhone is compatible with the Verizon Wireless network? One option is to purchase a prepaid refill card to pay for the service you need.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Hi, Ann154. Thanks for answering. I have verified that my iPhone is compatible. I would still have to visit a Verizon store to obtain a SIM once I arrive in the US though, right? Or am I misunderstanding you?
