You can buy it wherever. You may have more chance of getting a better version of the phone depending on where you are or she is.

Hi Chris,

You can but the phone and get it activated in Alberta under a Quebec phone number and plan. You can do it whichever way you want.

If you want her to get a phone that she likes then I would suggest setting up an account but make sure that she is listed as an authorized user.

Ultimately you are responsible for the bill but she can makes changes on the account as well as getting a new phone.

Keep in mind that if she wants to cancel then that will HAVE to go through you....also, she will have to remember the PIN in case she wants help from customer service/tech support - otherwise they will have to talk to you to verify the account.
