    My phone is unlocked...now what?

    I had my phone unlocked a few months ago so I could use it while travelling. I live in Canada and am travelling to Vegas this week. It is a GSM phone with a sim card. Do I just walk into a 7-11 and buy a sim card with x number of minutes on it? Is it that simple? What is the best plan for calling locally and internationally back home to Canada? Does the sim card come with a local phone number?

    Thanks

    You can buy any prepaid or contract SIM card of your choice. The SIM will most likely have a local number from the area where the store or dealer are located. If you're asking about whether it would have a local Canadian number, then the answer for a US SIM is a clear "No".

    If you're looking at prepaid SIM cards, have a look here to get an idea of what is out there:

    I don't know if you can get a SIM at just any 7-11. It might be better to order the US SIM in advance.
