    It is not Corporate plan, I found it out through Kijiji
    Cheapest Cell Phone Plans Canada / Lowest Rate, Cheap, Best Mobile Phone Plans
    It cost me $200 one time fee

    Best part of the plan is Roaming
    It will get you any available network in area. Mostly is AT&T, T mobile. In remote area Union Wireless. 99% USA covered

    That's apparently because TBayTel has the only tower in the area and doesn't like to share.

    $70 includes your data? Data may be used in either country? How much data? Us-can or us-us calling/text included? Any of that b.s. $5/day for USA?

    Wonder if that plan is only available for Manitoba residents..

    You can add the data on. The 44.00 is for 15g of shareable data between our two phones. Have never gotten close to using it all. Should be available nation wide. 25,000 of us got forced over to Telus when bell bought mts mobility. Best #### thing that ever happened!

    I'm with T-mobile for 3 years, so are a dozen of buddies running Canada -Usa, we all switched to this Canada-Usa-mexico plan.
    I never turned off data when get to Canada, and i used the phone, data in Europe also; T-Mobile is owned by Deutsche Telecom .But they merged with Sprint few weeks ago and for first time i received a text this week not to abuse data limit in Canada. Good coverage, they have a map below, Talk text data unlimited in USA, / unlimited text talk but limit 5Gigs in Canada,2 phones separate lines # for 110usd/month tax included.

    This here is the right answer. Cricket is the best option for a single device for use in both Canada and the US. Use it with an unlocked non cricket android phone and tethering also works. It will Roam on Rogers/Telus/Bell so it works well anywhere in Canada. Its rare to be in areas in the US where it doesn't work. (Does happen but rare.) Its always a bit slow and high ping but overall good. And you have access to US content even when in Canada. (US netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, not just the amazons 1st party tv shows.)

    If you need to have a Canadian Cell number consider saying you live in Manitoba. They seem to have the cheapest cell plans. Pay the extra $10 for the Canada + US plan. $90 for 15GB.
