    Flying SYD to LAX for a week in California.
    As I live in the country, I run a CDMA phone (of course). So a pre-paid US SIM card isn't on, unless I buy a cheapo 3-band GSM phone before I go.
    Is that reasonable, or should I investigate renting a pre-paid phone when I get there?
    Or is the whole thing just too expensive to be worthwhile?

    yeah, just borrow a standard digital/GSM tri band phone and get a sim card when you are over there.

    if you were near brisbane you could take your pick from any of half a dozen i have lying around my joint :)
