Unfortunately, there are no stores at O'Hare that sell pre-paid sim cards, which really puzzles me as well. I've traveled all over the world to places like South Africa, Australia, Hong Kong, etc, and each time the minute we land at the airport, we can conveniently purchase a pre-paid sim card and load it into our phones so we are connected instantly before we leave the airport.

But in the US, we hardly see stores selling pre-paid sim cards for the convenience of tourists. I think this also has got to do with the fact that majority of the phones in the US are locked, so buying pre-paid sim cards may not be as common among Americans but this is not to say that international travelers won't need them when they visit and arrive at the airport! You can definitely still purchase pre-paid sim cards but just not at the airport since it doesnt' look like any vendors sell them there.

You have to go to the nearest service provider's store that is convenient for you. Thanks for clearing that up terinay. I guess there is no harm searching in Minneapolis my next destination from Chicago. I dont think the Minneapolis airport has a cellular provider as well, so my best bet would be to search downtown for one. All of your saved places can be found here in My Trips.

It sends texts over data so you don't have a per text charge. Only a data charge, and texts use almost no data so you can send a lot. Not sure if that's cheaper or easier than two pre-paid phones. Ready Sim looks like it has pretty good coverage in the US. Certainly covers the Chicago area. They also have competitors if you google usa pre paid sim cards.
