No need to bring old & already answered threads alive. Gdkitty already answered the question the same way you just did....
Ya i know.. Just would like to expand on it lol.. i didnt see it was a old thread as it was on the right side on most liked threads..
Make sure roaming is off when you are not using it - data can occur by apps with out being aware... Set email to load manually to advoid it from always searching for new mail. Also make sure all app are closed.
My best advise is Keep Data and Roaming off when not using... even better keep phone off!
Sorry my post didn't make sense. I ment to say
your package would be for sending 100 text FROM CANADA TO THE US ... This package would not include any text sent from outside of canda. When outside of canada an add on is required to cover usage.
If you sent less then 100 text from within canada and still were charged then i would call. I believe once the 100 are exceeded its around 25 cent for each text to the us.
I've been traveling in the US for work over the last couple months. One thing I can definitely say, get on the rewards program for starters! They have a reward you can turn in at 1500 points. If you are already registered for the rewards program, but haven't used it yet, login to see what your balance it at. If you have enough, i1500 reward points for the US Travel pack includes 40 talk minutes and unlimited texts. It does not, however cover any data usage. If you don't have enough points, then see if they have any survey's. I got 1000 or 1500 for my first survey that I took, which covered my first travel pack redemption right off the bat. But... They only had the one survey available at the time and I have not seen any new ones since.
Now, if you are willing to pay for a package, there are 2 plans I know of. The first is a $40 plan which includes 50 talk minutes, unlimited texting (to and from Canada and the US) as well as 200MB of data.
The second plan is for $80 and includes: 100 talk minutes, unlimited texts (US/Canada) and 500mb of data.
To my knowledge, these are the only travel packs currently avaialble. Although, they have a travel pack for $40 that's just talk and text only, no data as well (100 talk minutes, unlimited texts, no data coverage). But if you can get the package with data for the same price, may as well, right?
I hope this helps! Have a safe trip!
