3G SIM card alternative besides AT&T?

Is AT&T the only provider with a 3G-compatible network for Fona 3G?

I use a sim from Speedtalk Mobile--just ordered it from Amazon, and when it came I was able to sign up online without having to talk to anyone. Have been using it for months with no issues.

Now every time I've sent the "Operator Selection" query (AT+COPS?) to my FONA 3G I get back T-Mobile like shown below:

+COPS: 0,0,"T-Mobile",2

So Speedtalk seems to be using T-Mobile's network, so you may also be able to go straight to T-Mobile and sign up.

I recommend looking into Ting. I've used Ting for years for smartphones, and I've been happy with the pricing and customer service.
