    Re: prepaid 3g data plan

    I just picked up a Verizon prepaid stick, went online to activate, and it only accepts American based credit cards on the website. Looks like I will have to venture out again tomorrow to purchase gift cards for it.
    Lesson to be learnt: Make sure to get refill cards when you buy the device. :S

    I live here in LAS and have T-Mobile. We were one of T-Mobile's demo / test 3G markets, so the coverage is quite good... unless you are staying at the Mandalay Bay, which is a coverage black hole.

    Yes, let's add alcohol to walking 6miles in the desert heat. Great idea, all the cool kids are dying of heatstroke, you know. Here's a better idea, read up on this thread before considering walking anywhere in Las Vegas during the summer.

    Google produced this link, with a map, address and phone number. Doesn't look to be too far from the Airport, so I guess it's not far at all then, A ten minute cab ride maybe?

    I find the USB VirginMobile EVDO fits my needs and is $99 one time and then you just get refill cards which are good for a month. 1gb is $60 i think. Here is the adapter from BestBuy here in the states... http://bit.ly/aM74q5
    Speed is so-so but works great for normal bandwidth reqs. Works with win/mac and linux if you give it some tlc.

    I liked it mainly cuz I can feed it crap info, fake name/address etc... no contract and go to a store pay cash for the refill card. Hope they haven't changed that since I used it last year :)

    Just my 2 cents.
