I have been looking at this as I am about to move to the US.
I have heard that StraightTalk(.com) is really good and super cheap. It uses the AT&T network for 3G and T-Mobile for 4G as far as I believe. It's $45/month unlimited talk text data. You can buy from Walmart....

I have a T-mobile pay as you go SIM card that I drop in whenever I'm in the States. For short term stays I pay $2 per day for unlimited text and unlimited web. Connection is at 2G. For Australian iPhone users, the US 4G network is incompatible. T-mobile doesn't have a 3G network.
On my recent trip the fact I was working on a 2G network wasn't really an issue.

For an iPhone – get a Red Pocket sim, it runs on AT&T (the best network for iPhones), you'll get a 3G connection, and the prices are pretty good.
