Can I purchase and use any of the US Roaming Addons if my plan has no talk, no text and/or no data?

Hi PM Community,

 

I'm traveling to Maui in the next 2 weeks and I wanted to use PM, because it's the cheapest rate for the 2 weeks I will be away. I already purchased a SIM.

 

My question is if I activate it and choose a No Talk, No Text, No Data plan, can I purchase and use any of the US Roaming Addons or do I need, at the minimum, a plan with Talk on it?

 

 

Thanks!

Mayor / Maire

You need some basic plan.  The $10 plan for 50 minutes/50 text would work for your purposes.  If you sign up for autopay, the plan would be $8 ($2 monthly credit).

You will need an active "in Canada" plan for the roaming to work. The $10 50minutes/50texts will be sufficient.

Not sure if you are joking... No talk, no text, no data is not a plan.  It's the base fee, you'll NEED at least one base feature to make it an active plan in good standing.

I am not sure why you would chose a no talk, no text no data for $10 where, if it was possible the US roaming would not work as opposed to choosing the $10 talk, text, data plan that cost.....well the the same thing.... and all add-ons will work.

I'm home. Smiley Sad

 @Vandypants: If you aren't currently using PM then forget about roaming. Go to Target not far from the airport on your way to your destination (if you're renting a car) and get the yellow H2O SIM and real, true, pay-as-you-go service for $11US. $1 for the SIM and $10 to get you going. Works on AT&T. Get it all going online and the fun part is that you would have a local 808 number.

 

As for roaming...the policy here states that you have to have talk in your base plan. But that has been found to be not entirely true in reality.

 

It's also known that you can receive texts in the states without any roaming add-on. Not outgoing.

The funny thing I discovered was that I was also able to receive calls....again without any roaming add-on and again...no outgoing.

No data...although it seems I can't edit the APN in my antique BB OS10 phone.

 

If you haven't been to Maui before, you'll love it.

I know I’ve read that you do not need a talk or sms plan to use any of the US talk, sms, or data roaming addons, but having no base plan is not a plan in Canada.

 

i have no idea if this is possible on a no selection base plan.  For security of service, the $10 50/50 is the same price as no plan, so pick the 50/50 as your base, then get the desired addon(s) for US Roaming.
