I believe that you need a tri-band phone for use in the states, the Nokia 6310i is one, but cheap it isn't and I don't think that there are many others around. You may be better off buying a cheapy over there.

Two other options are to have an existing mobile upgraded to tri-band or to hire a tri-band mobile for the time you are in the states.
This link will give you some examples.

No mate, I think it is only the i version, but as Jimbo says, it is not that difficult to rent one over there.
