Canada SIM cards
Travelgear now offers the AT&T SIM for the USA, Canada and Mexico or the T-Mobile monthly prepaid SIM for the USA and North America. These SIM cards are great options for travellers to the USA, who are also spending some time in Canada or Mexico. Your first use must be in the USA.
We no longer sell Canadian SIM cards for Canada, as you are not able to activate any of the large company Canadian SIM outside of Canada, even online.
We have previously sold Virgin Mobile, Rogers, and Fido SIM cards, all of which offer good value plans and have prepaid SIM suitable for travellers.
If you are only travelling to Canada, your best option is to get one of these SIM when you arrive in Canada.
A good things to know about Canadian SIM cards, is that
1) the call charges are based on tiers of: local area, long distance or national (within Canada), within North America, and International rates.
2) therefore it is best to get a SIM with a number from the local area that you will be spending most of your time.
Be sure to have your phone unlocked before you travel.
