Which SIMcard to buy in Poland for two week usage

I will be visiting Poland for two weeks and I need to buy a SIMcard for my phone.
This will primarily be used for data/internet and needs to be prepaid - obviously.

Can anyone recommend which service provider I should use? For best price.
Seeing as I will only use it for two weeks and probably never again.

I can't see myself using more than 500MB in total.

And also. I will probably be arriving at Katowice International Airport.
Will there be a shop on the airport that that I can buy from, or somewhere close by?
I have never been to Poland.

Thank you

Just pay a PLAY 5zl prepaid sim card, and then Charge it with 10ektra zl, and then you will be good.

You can buy it in many stores, just ask some people around you once you arrive.
Just know that there are no mini simcards (like those you use in the new iphones etc.) which can be bought as prepaid.

Yes. Every kiosk including at the airport. Ask for one specifically for the internet.

As long as you're sticking to the cities, Play is certainly the network to go for.

True, play is horrible if you just move a litte bit outside of cities.

You can just set your phone to default domestic roam to the Plus network, that fixes your network connection issues for voice calls and text messages. However, it does mean you need to switch back to Play every time you want to use mobile data, which is a bit of a pain in the arse.

I recommend play too... providing you have the right type of SIM card Play fresh you can buy data packages in Poland.

Can anyone tell me if you have to change your settings in your phone to access the internet with Play? I have an Android Nexus One.

On an iPad or Windows Phone, in the settings menu you should input an APN. For Play, it is just 'Internet'. No username or password. Perhaps android is the same, however when I had one I used Play and don't remember needing to change anything.
