Unfortunately Only a credit/Visa Debit card registered to a Canadian address can be registered to your account. International credit/Visa Debit cards are not accepted.

I believe they can be if they're registered first, but this can take a few business days. They can't be used for the credit check, though.

Jonathan is right. International cards are accepted but need to be registered with customer service. It's always been like this, Dennis

So there's no way to get on a monthly plan as they require a credit check? registering would mean I can get a prepaid?

Anyone, Canadian or not can sign up on prepaid. But for the monthly plans there is a credit check thay requires two pieces of (canadian) govnt issued ID.

How long are you staying for? Will you be able to get any form of Canadian IDs? SIN, drivers license/provincial ID card, or Canadian Credit card + another photo ID like your passport is required to get a monthly plan because they need to do a credit check. You can always do prepaid, though.

Consider using a US phone (unlocked) and a pre-paid Koodo SIM & plan while here. No credit check required. Price of SIM refunded on activation. Any AT&T compatible phone will do.

I guess this Koodo link was confusing me about international credit cards
