I've been reading Jalopnik on and off since 2008? But it didn't occur to me to create an account until a few weeks ago so a short introduction is probably in order.
I'm (nearly) 17, and Indian but living in Singapore which many of you may know as the country with ridiculously expensive cars and exorbitant fines for littering and stuff. Well it's not all that bad (at least it's safe, heh) but of course it means that although I'd consider myself an enthusiast I've never really had the chance to drive anything beyond a go-kart. Anyhow I'll probably be getting my license the moment I turn 18 next December, after which I should be able to drive my dad's 2006 Corolla.
I have a question for you oppos- I'll be visiting the US for a month between mid November and December. As an IB student I have a shit ton of work to do despite being on "vacation" so I'm considering picking up a prepaid SIM card I can insert into my iPotato for connectivity when I'm going to be on the road and stuff. Can't be Verizon/Sprint because it's the GSM version. I'll need lots of data and hotspot functionality to tether to my laptop and I've heard that carriers block it or something so I figured this would be the best place to check haha. Thanks!
