    Are there any AT&T or T-Mobile or Verizon stores at LAX where you could buy a sim card for an unlocked phone?

    Thanks very much in advance,

    From memory, you can purchase a sim card at LAX but not sure. What you could do, if you have time and staying in the area for a while, is purchase a sim card from one of the larger stores such as Walmart. Here is an example Electronics: Cell Phones: Phone Cards

    I was just there last week and looked around for something, all in vain. In the end I went to Santa Monica (I was staying near there anyway) and went to the AT&T store there.

    Also -- if you've got an unlocked iPhone, and you want data access, make sure you get the 100mb package and 'enable' it by visiting Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone and adding the profile to the iPhone. Otherwise it won't work. (Obviously the AT&T people won't tell you about this, either, given they disabled data on pre-paid SIMs back in June. Took me a good half a day to figure it all out.)

    Of course there are companies that sell them outside of the USA too if you want one before you go (like the company I work for). There are many options on pre-paid SIM cards in the USA, and some (like ours) offers you AT&T and T-Mobile coverage for around the same (or less) than you pay each carrier there. You also get the card before you go so it works on landing:)

    Do a google search for them (I won't advertise here). If you want info, PM me.

    How annoying... I am transiting through LAX (TBIT-T4) and would like to pick up a sim or cheap phone... So to confirm, no one has found a place that sell cells :) in LAX T4?
