Unfortunately, no.  Only 10 day roaming packages.  Once the 10 day runs out, then you can purchase another 10 day package.

@bka1948  to buy the same package right after, I think you have to get help from a CSA from PM to help with that.

no, you cannot. 

 

Make sure you aware that once you bought it, it will start counting 10 days from there.  You have to wait till 10 days later to buy the next 10 days.  but if you used up the data/minutes before the 10 days, you will have to open a ticket for PM t assist buying early.

 

 

if you need quite some data or minutes or need it for long time ,   consider buying prepaid plan from US carriers

 @bka1948 : The roaming add-ons are a bit quirky. Particularly talk. Do not buy more than one talk component whether in a bundle or alone. I might suggest the same with texting just because. You can buy different named buckets of data once you've consumed one bucket. But the first one still needs to wait the 10 - 24 hour periods.

The roaming add-ons are 10 - 24 hour periods with the quirk of a waiting period to re-buy the same one. Or as mentioned you can ask the CSA's to renew it without waiting.

 

If you can wait it out, you could help some regulars to verify exactly when you can re-buy.

1. Immediately after the 10 - 24 hour periods

2. After midnight ET after that 10th 24 hour period or before #3

3. After 24 hours after that 10th 24 hour period

4. After midnight ET after that other 24 hour period

 

We're quite certain it's not #1 but try it anyway if you wish to do any of this. I still wonder if #2 would work. We might be confident that #3 is the one. I doubt it has to go all the way to #4.

Check mintmobile.com who offer longer term roaming options.

@Triguy look good.  All price USD, right?   you tried?  We can activate ahead in Canada and use Canadian Visa?   do they  send SIM to Canada or we have to buy it when in States?

@softech   You can buy mint mobile sim card and plan packages from BH photo.com located in the USA and they will ship it to you in Canada, no problem 👍.  Very convenient 😉

Depending on your phone model, Mint also provides an eSIM. That way you don't need to wait for a physical SIM.
