Roaming plan - does my phone # remain the same?


If I get an international roaming plan add on, does my phone # remain the same, or would people calling (either from home, or the country I'm visiting) need to add a long distance 'code'?

Yes. That is one of the advantages of a Roaming package over choosing to use a localSIM. Everyone calls you the same as if you were still home.

Even someone calling me from the country I'm visiting? Do they need to put '1' or '011' (eg) (which they would do if I was at home...if ya know what I mean...)
before the number?

Yes they do, but the trunk prefix will depend on where they're calling from (ex. if in Europe, it's 001+area code+number). Easier for them to dial +1 instead. That's universal.

So, if I understand correctly, I can add on an international text plan, and then take my phone to Spain and people there can text me at my Canada number, without it costing more than the $15 add on?

Yes! But you must pay attention to your usage. You can not use the same amount of data and text as you're using back home
