    Question Canadian Needs Data Access Using Foreign (TMo) SIM Card

    Advertisement



    Newbie question pre-purchase.

    My "home" carrier is Rogers. Because the Rogers roaming voice plan is expensive, when I travel to the US, I have a TMo Pay As You Go SIM card for my sucky Treo (soon to be on eBay). But the TMo card does not work for data, only voice. I have to switch back to the Rogers SIM to collect emails.

    When I start using a BB, is there any way around the swap?

    Thanks.

    Matt

    Don't think so, but does Rogers have an international Data Roaming feature?

    Rogers charges $.05 per K when roaming in the US. It's less with a voice/data bundle, but their bundles do not include long distance calls to the US

    Just Curious, AT&T has an International Data Roaming Plan for the BB. It costs $20.00 per Month and can be added and removed at any time. Without it it is really expensive. Just wondering if Rogers might have a similar plan.

    Canada is still way behind in plan options. It's plain data at various chunks (e.g., $15 for 1.5MB, $25 for 3MB etc), and an unavoidable roaming charge outside Canada.

    Or a data/voice bundle (2 or 3 year commitment) with roaming charges on top:
