On prepaid?
No unfortunately.
For monthly customers, Yes you can see them in the add-ons section of the shop page.

Not 100% accurate... only 99.49%. You will not be arrested or your device confiscated. :-);

If you set your preferred network to Koodo only, you can roam FOR FREE, about .75 km into the US :-)).

Or you can use TextFreeUltra to text from/to anywhere over a wifi connection.

There are spots where you can sneak even further in to the USA before ATT discovers you!  ;-)
