1TMobile is your best bet, you can buy a SIM card with great coverage overall (Limited in remote national parks for all cell service at times), you can pay monthly, and set up on your Credit Card, then cancel when done. Unlimited Text/Talk and a lot of data for most is $50 month. More data add $10, or pay as you use it.

2yup..T-mobile.... I use them and buy 1000 minutes and text and it's 100 dollars. In some ways this is a bit expensive, but for me, the importance is that the expiration lasts a year. Guess it all depends on how much calling your going to do. This deal was not for data...then like them all, its 50 bucks a in general

3I am a US resident but don't spend so much time there. T-Mobile also has pay-as-you-go plans for $1 or for $2 a day. With the latter you get unlimited talk and text, but the internet speed is not so hot.
T-Mobile does not have the best coverage, but uses sim-card technology. So does ATT, and you may want to compare the two.

6Yes, your unlocked Android should be fine, no need to buy a new phone in the US. Wouldn't AT&T be a better choice if she can get data working? (Which apparently can be difficult sometimes, especially with incompetent, lazy or lying AT&T reps.)
