Roam Mobility

For Canadians traveling into the US sometimes the most expensive part of the trip isn't the airfare or the hotel but instead the roaming fees associated with their data plans. Gone are the days of ridiculous roaming fees on your current carrier, or trying to find a pre-paid data plan to use for the short time you are in the US, and here is Roam Mobility. The idea behind Roam Mobility is quite simple -- they want to provide a painless solution for roaming Canadians that gives them access to a fast, reliable network while in the US. 

Roam Mobility offers a basic handset, a Liberty mobile hotspot or a SIM / Micro-SIM card that can be purchased, and they pair them with affordable plans as well. You can choose between data only plans, text & talk, or text, talk and data and with these plans you are given the option to pre-pay for the time you will be here, or pay by day. All you need is an unlocked GSM phone and you are ready to rock. For full details, comparison to Canadian carriers roaming charges, and how to get one for yourself be sure to hit the link below.

Oh, Canadians...they forgot to include the UP of Michigan on their coverage map...

Looks like it's a T-Mobile based network (they say up to 42Mbps)?

I called them. They are partnered with T-Mobile. My first thought was, to use this from time to time, on a 30 day basis. To check out some other carriers hardware, without the commitment to contract (since we can bring our own phone) T-Mobile/AT&T don't cover me very well. Very little in fact. May be good for those thinking along the same lines. I want my 'Note/Journal' And I want to use it Now! : - ) $99.95 a month, for 2,000 MB:

Talk + Text + Data
Savings of up to 99%* on all your roaming charges
Data speeds of up to 42 Mbps on America’s largest 4G network
Unlimited talk and text within the US and back to Canada
Free voicemail and caller ID
No contracts, overage fees, hidden charges, or surprises

I knew it sounded too good to be true. Why spend nearly $100 a month when I can get a Boost Mobile phone with unlimited everything including unlimited calling to Canada and Mexico for $60 a month? The only thing I miss out on is texting to Canada.
