Pay-As-You-Go Roaming

I know I can make and receive calls in the US with my Pay-Go plan.


Are there any other countries that I can make and receive calls in or is Pay-Go limited to North America only?

Re: Pay-As-You-Go Roaming

I am pretty sure That you can only use a pay as you go in North America.... If your going out of North America for a period of time you may want to activate a pay as you go in that country... 


 ****Updated Solution****


Your pay as you go phone can be used Internationally as well as in North America. Please take a look at the travel packs availablefor your pay as you go plan

Roaming in Oz


I thought that my Pay As You Go plan only enabled me to roam in the US, but when I arrived in Sydney Australia, I was surprised when my phone chimed with a text "Rogers welcomes you abroad! You are now roaming; roaming rates are $3.50/min...."


Actually I can't confirm that I could actually make or take a call as I wasn't going to find out at that rediculous rate.

Instead I got a $30 Telstra Simplicity pre-paid card at the airport providing me with $30 of talk time. Rates were 15 cents/min within Oz, to Canada, to the US and Germany. Italy was 89 cents/min. Incoming calls and text messages were free. Simply amazing rates.

I missed that ****Updated Solution**** from a couple of posts up. Thanks!


Good to know. It would be nice if that info would come in a table form instead of having to click on individual countries.


Rates are really high, but in an emergency, it is good to know I can roam where ever the service exists.

Stay away from the roaming packages.  Rip off city


I'm in Europe a couple of times a year.  Sent texts are 75 cents with free incoming.


WiFi is everywhere and free.  It's either unlocked or you get an acess code on your receipt (thank you Costa Coffee) that is good for a specified time period.


If you really want to chat, like said up thread, buy a local phone and use it.

Re: Pay-As-You-Go Roaming

Well if you are in Europe often, get an Aldi Talk card if you are in Germany.


I have one and the rates are simply amazing aka non-Canadian.


I'll top up with a mere 20 Euro (not even $30) card the day before I leave and I am good for a whopping...get this...2 years till my card and money expires.


Free incoming calls and free incoming texts and all this with ultra low outgoing calls and texts.


What a concept!

pay as you go phone roaming in US



I have a rogers pay as you go phone, and I intend to bring it to the US for a week. Can I make call with it from within US ? Is the roaming automatic once I am in the US, or do I need to do something to activate it ?   The romaing fee is $2.00/min shown on, doesn it include the normal fee $0.5/min if I use it in the States ?

Good evening @Dan_7,


Thank you for your post!


The regular travale packs are not available to our Prepaid customers.


Wireless Internet use while you are roaming, i.e. in another country and off the Rogers network, will be charged at regular roaming rates.

You can always visit this page, and click on the Roaming tab.

Then, select your destination, in the drop down menu, to see what the current rates are.

Hope this helps!

Re: Pay-As-You-Go Roaming

I'm on the Pay As You Go plan. I'm wondering if I can make a call or text while I'm roaming to China? Thanks.
