Hi J.Z.,

US roaming add-on are for when you travel to the united states. With them you can make and receive calls from the US, text from the US and use data from the us (if you get one with data). These are not your usual limits tho! Each add-on has it's own allowance and it is not what is part of your monthly plan. With you calling minutes, you can place calls to any US number and any Canadian Number, from the US. This does not include calls to the US while in Canada.

Thats right, you need to turn on roaming in order to use your phone in the states

If you want to use data while in the states, you have to also make sure data roaming is enabled

They're two different settings so make sure both are on to have full service (calling, texting, and data)
