Im off to America for a few weeks at the end of the month.
Im just wondering what networks will my UK (Soon to be unlocked) 920 work on?
From what i can tell it will only work on AT&T 3g/4g but was hoping to use Tmobile as it looks cheaper. (Not bothered about 4g as long as it picks up 3g.
Or could someone from across the pond let me know the best Pay and go plans... i only wanna make a few calls but manly for data, as my EE network want 50 for 200mb.

Don't T-Mobile and AT&T both use most of the same bands as UK? I think they both use the same for their HSPA+, anyways. I don't think you'll have LTE, but HSPA+ should work. I think.

Looks like im heading to AT&T when im over there.... Wheres the best place the get a sim and credit? When i went years ago i remember being stung in the butt for a AT&T sim and credit on a NYC store.
This looked a good deal at walmart.. would the data plan be ok on the 920? As i read somewhere you only get unlimited data if you are on a old phone, so you would need a smart phone plan.

When you come to the states, there are two types of AT&T stores. An official AT&T store and there is also an AT&T Reseller. You want to make sure you go to an official AT&T store, not one that says Reseller under their AT&T banner. Here are the rates for AT&T Pay As Go I use an AT&T Pay As You Go SIM card in my work phone:
$25.00 for 250 monthly minutes and unlimited SMS & MMS (add $10.00 for international calling)
$5.00 for 50MB of Data
$15.00 for 200MB of Data
$25.00 for 1GB of Data
The Walmart link with Straight Talk will also work for you. It's an AT&T MVNO . I think there data is still unlimited as far as I know. Some people say you can't stream with their data, others say they can stream fine with their data.
You'll get 3.5G HSPA+ on either.
