I'm in the US for the week, unfortunately discovered my phone service has gone completely dead - so wondering if there is a way to keep in contact with my contacts through some sort of forwarding of calls and/or texts from my prepaid number to a US sim or some other wifi based solution? If so how?

There is plenty of forwarding services that are wifiPC based. Google how to forward calls from canada to the U.S.

You could get an android app that gives you a VOIP text and calling phone number, and leave that number on your voicemail for your contacts to call or text you at. Cant recommend a certain app as there is soo many. Good Luck

Copied from a mobile master post related to the same thing..

When you get to the states visit a walmart and pickup a cheap android prepaid phone.

Download Google voice to it. Get yourself a google voice number.
setup your walmart phone to receive calls from Google voice.
Setup your koodo Voicemail extended absence greeting and set it not to record messages.

Record your outgoing message and give your Google voice number as a number you can be reached at.

Incomming Google voice messages will goto your email

Now leave your Canadian phone on.*** When people call you, you'll see the number do not answer it

Call them back on your walmart phone using google voice.

***Note: koodo prepaid will not function outside of Canada so you'll have to rely on google voice messages if you have Koodo prepaid.
