I'm coming to Canada from the UK and I'm bringing an old pay-as-you-go handset I've got spare. Does anyone know of any pre-paid simcard deals I could get that once I come over that would give me international texts?
As long as the phone has HSPA 850/1900 bands then it'll work.
If you only need texts, then the $15 base plan will suit you well. It has unlimited texting to anywhere in the world. Base plans are effective for 30 days.
If you want some calling, then add a booster. They don't expire as long as the base plan is maintained. The best value is 500 for $25 but I'm not sure if you use all of that. Check out the plans on the website to see what you like.
