    I'll be in the US next week and will need to text Canada, what is a reasonable pay as you go deal for a cheap phone in the US right now? My bank account will get raped on roaming charges if I use my Canadian cell :(

    If you just want a cheap phone for texting, go to shop, then phones and put in the zip code of where you're going. They have all different phones from nice Androids to reconditioned flip phones for free. Then buy the $45 card for unlimited text/talk/data.

    It was looking good there for a min till I see you can't text on it. I hate talking on the phone and require my family to text for my attention :eek:

    In the US, with each pre-paid phone that you buy, you are allowed to murder someone and then dramatically throw the phone into the nearest large body of water.

    I have been practicing my throwing specifically for this trip and this reason. :killa:


    Thanks Pi - I will check them too - getting info online about the internation text on the pre paid phones is a pain in the ass.
