Hi All,

I hope this is a simple question to answer, I have tried to search it on the forums and google but was not able to get the answer.
I will be visiting US day after tomorrow.
I want to buy a Prepaid AT&T Sim Card for the duration of 2 weeks I will be there.
Please let me know where can I Purchase it online.
I tried ATT.com but they want to sell go prepaid only with Phone.
I am buying a Lumia 920 and from the forums I understand go prepaid will work with Lumia 920 without any issues.

3 Questions I have
1. Where Do I Buy The Card From (Preferred Online)
2. How to activate a Plan
3. What Documents I need to provide as I am from India to get a Prepaid SIM in US.

Replies will be appreciated.

It's not ideal, from the sounds of it, but you should just be able to walk into an AT&T store when you get here and buy one. I've bought one for someone visiting from out of the US in the past, might have had to have photo ID, but I imagine a passport would work.
