  • We No Longer Need a Big Carrier's Wireless Plan. Discount Ones Are the Way
    Not OP, and they said what they use (Red Pocket) but I also pay $5/mo for service from Tello ( ). 500MB/mo, data only, calls through Google Voice via data. (100 minutes of voice $1/mo extra.) Lots of choice in building your own plan. - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago
  • T-Mobile switching users to more expensive plans unless they call to opt out

  • Can i recharge/pay again to stay with the same number?
    Https:// Unlimited on tello is 25gb of data. Source: 12 months ago
  • Best provider for 30 days
    I'm on Mint and happy with it, live in Arlington VA and work in Downtown DC. As of last year you could sign up for Visible for a month and cancel. If you don't need fully unlimited data, i.e. Where you are staying will provide internet, a provider like might be good where you can customize your minutes and data (US Mobile has similar).

  • A country where US calling can legally be charged at $1/minute is a broken country.
    For US calling, if you have a supported phone, you can also sign up for a cheap US provider like Tello and pay $8/month for unlimited US calls and texts on a secondary SIM. Turn on wi-fi calling on the US SIM and make calls using your Canadian data. When you go to the US, add a gig of data for the cost of 2 Rogers US minutes. That's one of many similar US providers discussed in depth here. Source: about 1 year ago
