One of the biggest ripoffs for Canadian cellphone users is using your it to call internationally. Many who use their Canadian-based service in the United States wind up getting dinged roaming charges. Those charges can start at $1.25 per minute, a ridiculous amount for the convenience. If you’re thinking about traveling to the states or overseas, you’re better off leaving your Canadian cellphone at home and purchasing a US-based cellphone service.
One company, Net10 Unlimited, currently has a great deal. You get nationwide coverage and unlimited talk, text, and data, all for $50 a month. There are no contracts, no surprise bills and no credit checks. You get great nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity. Net10 only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung. Full QWERTY keyboard phones, slider phones, and touch screen phones, with all the basics plus great app capabilities, camera and video recorder, web access, etc., available for under $60.00.
Here’s What Rob has to say about Net10.
The “Easy Minutes Plus” plan is an automatic minutes plan that starts at $15.00 for 200 minutes. With Pay-As-You-Go Plans, your minutes carry over with active service. You can switch between plans each month to suit your budget and airtime needs, without penalties or fees. Airtime can be purchased online, at a nearby store, or directly from your phone.
And when it comes to international long distance, service is available to over 75 countries, for only 15 cents per minute on calls originated in the US.
Here’s one testimony from a Real NET10 customer.
Bottom Line, Canadians have a much better alternative when it comes to using cellphone service in the states. Ditch that phone and leave it at home!
