Can I buy a local SIM and data plan for my iPhone when I visit New York?

Episode 971 (32:14)

James from British Columbia, Canada

James is traveling to New York and wants to know if he can buy a local sim and have a cell number and data plan. Leo says that getting a GoPhone is probably the best option and go directly to the carrier when he gets to the US. He can't set it up ahead of time. RedPocket and even Walmart are options as well.

Mike in the chatroom says that James can pay $60 for unlimited talk, text and 2GB of data through H20 wireless.
