SIM card for Maine use

I live in Thailand and will be travelling to the Rockland area for a month. I would appreciate some help in finding a location where I can buy the best SIM card for Maine usage. I have a Samsung S4 phone. In advance I thank anyone who might be able to give me advice.

I spend several weeks each year in Africa and used to pick up a SIM card at the Johannesburg airport. I now have an international plan for my phone that is fairly reasonable, especially for texting. I am assuming this is the gist of your question?

Can you provide a few more details of what you are trying to accomplish?

I see that you got advice on the Boston forum to post here asking about reliable providers. I can tell you to cross T-mobile off your list if you will be in the midcoast. AT&T can be spotty, but is better than t-mobile. Verizon is more reliable than either. In some parts of Maine, people swear by US Cellular, but their online assistance is horrendous, so for a short visit I would probably go with Verizon.
