Living near U.S. border

We live very near the U.S. border.   Will we occasionally be paying roaming charges while still within Canada?   This happened when we were with Fido for many years and they cancelled roaming on our phone, which solved the problem.

@zunga1940 No roaming charges to worry about. PM is prepaid there are no extra charges.

Public Mobile is a purely prepaid carrier - if you don't pay for a feature beforehand you are not able to use it. No surprise bills after the fact.

 

So if you don't pay for US roaming your phone will not connect to US cell phone towers.

@zunga1940 You will not get any roaming charges, but you may have reception problems if your phone is trying to connect to US towers instead of Canadian ones.

I would try and manually search and  set it  to the public mobile network. 

 

This will stop you from connecting to the US networks. If you connect to USA networks, you will not get charged roaming but you will also not receive or make calls nor send smses

With Public Mobile & Bell's Lucky Mobile there are no Pay per Use, Roaming, Accidental & or overages or any made up  Charges what so ever.  If something is not part of your Plan or an add on you have purchased it Simply just doesn't work.
