U$A Links (Last Checked in Summer 2005)

Some links I assembled for my own convenience while working and holidaying in the U$, specifically in California and Hawaii. See also my travel links for more general travel information!


Free Dial-Up Internet Account? No way, but you can generally subscribe for a free "trial" 1-2 month DSL account, e.g. at AOL or EarthLink. Also, SBC Yahoo offsers 20 $/month DSL contracts on a monthly basis (i.e. no year-long commitments!). This at the time of writing, at least...

Virgin Mobile USA : the only "Pay as you go" solution I could find providing a phone, a number and 20 $ of calling credit for as low as 79 $! Ask in Sprint/PCS stores!
