What is the best option for travellers?

Hello everyone, I am from Peru and will be travelling to the States later this year. My main concern is staying connected while I'm there, so I would like to know if there is a solution for people like me who would like to use the service for a short period of time.

 

First of, I'm still not sure if Verizon is CDMA only or also GSM, I already own an unlocked GSM phone that I would like to take with me and use while I'm there. I don´t really care for the minutes or texts as much as I do for data, it's what I'm mainly looking for.

 

I will only be there for 10 days. So, does Verizon offer aything that could suit my needs? 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks SuzyQ, you are correct. Verizon is CDMA only.

If you want to keep your phone the GS carriers are :

The chief GSM carriers in the United States are Cingular Wireless, recently merged with AT&T Wireless, and T-Mobile

If you already have an unlocked GSM phone you want to use, check T-Mobile and AT&T's prepaid offerings, and see if they have coverage where you're visiting.

If they don't, and Verizon does, you can get a prepaid VzW phone for your 10 day trip, but if you need data you're looking at a pretty spendy prepaid phone for just 10 days!
