**HELP with GSM iPhone 5 and Travelling to Las Vegas NV**I currently have an unlocked GSM iPhone in the UK, im going to be travelling to Las Vegas during next month and would like to keep my iPhone in use. Im reading a lot of contradicting stories about different networks and whats the best solution, If anybody else has any experience of doing this then if you could let me know my best option that would be great,
Also if possible would like to have the sim card to take rather than having to go to a store as im only going for 3-4 days.

1For 3-4 days it's hardly worth getting a local sim if you are not going to need a lot of data (surf the net/map).
Just enable international roaming with your carrier. BUT do note that making and receiving calls WILL be very expensive so I suggest you use SMS/text service where possible. SMS will be more expensive than what you are paying now but it's heaps cheaper than voice calls. DO NOT surf the net when roaming.
One way to cut cost is to see if you can get wifi from the hotel (free or paid service). Then you can surf the net and make calls using Skype or similar which cost next to nothing.
