    I've added another Truphone SIM to our family's fold. I successfully had it mailed to Canada and activated it in Canada before leaving for the US. It took about 10 days or maybe even more, having...

    Ya sorry that is confusing. The $15 for unlimited texting lasts 30 days and is straight forward for someone who is not interrupting service. The way the texting cost would vary is for a visitor...

    Okay here goes in case anyone is interested. There is more to Koodo prepaid than what I'll explain here but this is the gist of how it can work for travelers to Canada. Their prepaid sims need a...
  4. Roam Mobility vs. Lycamobile vs. H2O Wireless for Canadians Travelling in the US

    I have an older Lyca SIM that is still working well. I haven't topped it up for a while and it sounds like that won't be possible. I had a second Lyca SIM that stopped receiving calls though...

    This sounds interesting. What is the expiry on the $10?

    Thank you for clarifying re the default network. I wasn't aware of that change.
    And good to know about the usage requirements. This makes it even easier to maintain. Though I'd be fine with...

    Truphone vs Roam Mobility

    For my limited talk/text/data use while in the US, neither Roam Mobility nor Rogers Roam Like Home is cost-effective. My new recommendation is Truphone. Previously, Lycamobile had my vote but their...
  9. Roam Mobility vs. Lycamobile vs. H2O Wireless for Canadians Travelling in the US

    I would recommend Truphone if you're going to be in areas where TMobile coverage is spotty. Truphone defaults to the TMobile network but will connect to AT&T if there is no TMobile network. In fact,...
  10. Thank you for confirming.

    Thank you for confirming.

    On a recent day trip to the US I didn't end up needing to use my Lycamobile SIM but it was certainly nice to have service just in case. I was sure to make a $0.02 phone call to extend the expiry of...

    Just wanted to update those interested with some trouble I had recently and the solution I found. I tried to access my Lycamobile.us account on my iPhone and immediately noticed that it now appears...

    All good advice here.
    #2 seems especially scary to me.
    I wouldn't want to be worrying about that cellular data switch getting switched on by Jr. when it's supposed to stay off.
    Nice thing about...
  14. Also keep in mind that you can spend even less...

    Also keep in mind that you can spend even less than $25 for H2O's (AT&T) service. $10 can be purchased. It will last 90 days at which time your remaining balance can be maintained by adding more...
  15. Roam Mobility vs. Lycamobile vs. H2O Wireless for Canadians Travelling in the US

    I've seen no sign of progress wrt Lycamobile in Canada (though their US service works in Canada on Rogers, at least talk and text does, great for maintaining balance if US trips are infrequent). I'm...
  16. Lycamobile is a much less expensive alternative to Roam Mobility for many

    On a recent 10 day trip my wife and I spent under $5.00 total on our 2 lycamobile accounts. We texted and called US and Canadian numbers. We called a Europe number. We used data to check and send...
  17. Yes for someone who needs a lot of data,...

    Yes for someone who needs a lot of data, Lycamobile could get expensive. However many Canadians travelling in the US don't need much data and would rather not pay the expensive rates that Roam...
  18. using an iPhone to add funds to Lycamobile account

    I should also point out that I've had good success with using the iPhone to purchase top-up funds for Lycamobile by going to callingmart.com, choosing a Lycamobile top-up, paying via payal, and...
  19. Lycamobile is a much less expensive alternative to Roam Mobility for many

    If you're thinking about using Roam Mobility, you should give serious consideration to Lycamobile since they both use the exact same T-Mobile network. For many Canadians, a lot of money can be saved...

    On a recent trip I didn't end up needing my phone much other than to look a few things up but I was sure to make a 2 cent call to extend my Lycamobile expiry another 120 days.

    IMO, they don't want to compete with each other because they make much more money by being in cahoots. The concensus is that they collude and agree on minimums that they'll charge for services. ...

    If I had to guess I'd say you're likely in for a long wait if Lyca even comes to Canada at all. They obviously have a relationship with Rogers already since they roam on Rogers here in Canada. I...

    Oh, that's really too bad. I've read enough on forums to know how valuable it is to have information updated in the original post. Are there advantages to having the ability to edit disappear after...

    Anphone idroid,
    As far as I know, any pay-as-you-go options here in Canada require some sort of base plan. I wonder if 7-11 Speakout Wireless might work for you? It's a Rogers MVNO. Their new...

    Thanks for the information about Roam SIM card expiry, abundantc. I'd like to edit my original post with this detail so all the information is together. Unfortunately, I can't seem to figure out...
