I am planning to visit New York and New Jersey in late Sepetmeber and T mobile tourist plan looks fine as per my mobility requirement. Can you help me to understand the documents required to buy t mobile tourist sim? Also, does cost of $30 includes first time sim cost also or I will have to pay extra for first time sim starter kit

According to this document, the SIM is included in the price of the Tourist plan.
I would assume that your passport would be all the ID you'd need.
What unlocked phone do you plan on using? In the NY-NJ market, it needs to have LTE on band 2 or 4 or UMTS band 4 to work acceptably. In this market, GSM has been depreciated down to a few channels running in the LTE guard-bands and UMTS has been kicked up to an odd 5 MHz block in band 4. GSM will be just about unusable and UMTS will be very slow.
