Newton For Work - Data Sim Card Needed

Hi

I will be flying into Logan (via NYC) for work and staying in Residence Inn by Marriott in Needham for a week. Does anyone know if I can get a data Sim from Logan airport or Needham Street?

I do have 3 hours of transit in NYC but I guess there is only sufficient time for me to clear immigration and get onto my Boston flight.

Chris

There is a Radio Shack on Needham Street (next to a Marshall's and CVS) that is on the closer end of Needham Street towards the office park where your hotel is.

Say hi to TA HQ while you're there!

All Radio Shacks closed some time ago.

Sorry, Alan, but Radio Shack definitely still exists. I think they may have gone through bankruptcy but they still have stores and an online presence.

Radio Shack is an excellent suggestion for OP's needs.

Thanks Suza. I've been in that Radio Shack in the past 3 months. I didn't find what I wanted but it definitely was open and the sign was still up when I drove by a couple weeks ago.

Learned something new. All the ones in Boston are gone.

Still one on Mass Ave, across from the Mapparium, and at least one still in Cambridge. Etc, etc

There is also a Verizon store and an ATT store on Needham St. if the Radio Shack doesn't have what you need.

Thank you all! While doing my research I found out T mobile has a service that they can send the data sim to the hotel for tourist - it's call tourist plan or something. The only thing is it has to be charged to a US credit card and send to a local address or hotel. I will try and reach out to my colleague for help or if not I will check out the stores you have suggest :)

If you have t-mobile do you need a data SIM card at all? I am in Italy right now and international data roaming is free, but this may just be for American customers.
