There used to be a package you could get for i think $20/month so you could use your phone outside of canada. Is that not an option anymore? Im not paying these easy roam rates that are ridiculously expensive!! If im gonna pay that ill just suspend my service for the months ill be in the USA & get a phone there!

Pay per use rates are available:

Keep in mind that suspending your service will require taking a current plan when you reactivate. If you have a good promotional plan that's no longer available, you won't be able to get it back.

EasyRoam maxes out at $100/ billing cycle in the US.  So after 14 Days, Roaming for the rest of your billing cycle is included

Still quite a bit for a month of service, but useful to know there's a cap.

Quite a bit? Thats just stupid! My bill is already 97$ a month sometimes more depending what I do on it...im not gonna have an extra 100$ on my bill...no way am I paying 200-250max a month for a phone! lol cheaper as i said previously to pay 15$ for a hold & hook up with a more versatile company for under 50$ that i can turn off or suspend service WITHOUT consequences.

Yeah the convenience of Roaming is pricey.  But the demand has been for carriers to offer "Roam like Home" type roaming plans.
