Travelling to the US with a UK BB - What Are My Cost Effective Data Options!?

Hi All,


I'm visiting SXSW in Austin TX in March for buisness / plesure and I'm wondering what the most costeffective way of using my current BB is while i'm there! As I will be spending most of my days away from WIFI I will need a reasonable data plan, but o2 want to charge me £6/mb!


I found this - http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2011/02/best-prepaid-data-carriers-and-plans.html - and have had a look at the top options but "Boost Mobile" only seem to allow their own handsets on their network. The AT&T GoPhone® Plans look promicing but it doesnt mention anything about BB service! 


Any idea what the best option for me is? (As far as receiving calles go, I'm looking to forward all my UK mobile calls through Skype as I have unlimeted UK-USA calls)


Thanks In advance!
