None of this stuff has been a problem. Granted I don't use a lot of data, but for basic maps and such it' fine.You can keep it in the way @ShivaOm describes, and just hope they let you, or you could use an online service e. g. Google Voice. There's a few hidden minuses you might want to keep in mind, though:
- Because you're roaming, you're at a low priority on the network you're on and your service may suffer
- People without international calling can't call you from their Canadian phones
- It may seem odd to have a US number after being in Canada for so long to employers, acquaintances, etc.
- Weird quirks, like having to dial the +1 before dialing any number
Wouldn't be too confident. We have seen others had their service eventually terminated at a certain point.I've had TMOBILE for 6 years in Canada, and keep it because the rates are so much lower than canada rates and it has worldwide data.
Every six months or so I get a message say most of my data use is outside of the US and that I'm violating my contract, but they still haven't canceled it, and I don't expect them to.
How can i get that sim card inside canada, i tried at & t site, they ship that only to US, is there anywhere else, that i get inside canada?AT&T has a 12 month $300 prepaid plan that offers roaming data in Canada. Are you thinking of keeping it as your sole number or getting Canadian number and keeping the US number?
You can port it to Google Voice (it cost me a one time US $15 8years ago,Hello Everyone,
We moved to Canada this year on PR. Currently, I am looking for the options to keep my US phone number (T-mobile) for some months by porting it to any of the online providers like google voice. Could anyone share their experience?
