Cellular Abroad SIM Card for Canada
A SIM Card for Canada, together with a tri-band or quad-band unlocked GSM cell phone, will allow you to have cellular service in Canada on a pay as you go basis. This SIM Card comes with a phone number native to your local area code in the U.S., so your friends and family will be able to reach you on a local call, rather than a long distance call to Canada. You can purchase talk time directly from the handset toll free, from the US or Canada, 7 days/week via credit card. Call credit is available in $10, $15, $25, $50, $75 and $100 denominations. The service provider is AT&T and roams on the Rogers network in Canada. Rogers is by far the largest Canadian carrier in the country. For your next trip to Canada, make sure to purchase a prepaid SIM card.
WARNING FOR IPHONE 4S AND IPHONE 5 USERS: This SIM Card will currently not work in your phone, unless you purchased your iPhone from AT&T.

From an overseas landline or cell phone, Cellular Abroad can be reached 8am to 4pm PST, 7 days a week with English customer support and recharge services by dialing this phone number: 00-1-310-862-7100. Customers in the U.S. can reach us toll-free at 1-800-287-5072, or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If your trip is longer than 30 days and you need to continue the service, you can purchase additional call and data credit. Please note that you cannot add additional credit to a SIM card within a 30 day period. Example, purchasing a recharge voucher will NOT give you 2000 minutes of call credit and 2GB of data within a 30 day period nor can this be done (Telcel caps the service to 1000 min and 1GB data per 30 day cycle). It will give you an additional 30 day(s) of 1000 minutes and 1GB of data. You may also call Cellular Abroad at +1-310-862-7100 (8am to 4pm PST, Monday through Saturday, English speaking reps), but you can also order online 24/7 through our website, before or during your trip to add additional service to your Mexico SIM card.

While the AT&T SIM card for The U.S. and Canada does roam elsewhere, Cellular Abroad does not offer rates nor customer support for this service. If you will need cellular service in other countries, please consider the Talk Abroad SIM card.

"Mexico is horrible when it comes to telephone service. At the resort we were at, they charge $10 to dial a number, then it was $10 per minute, needless to say, we did the phone card thing, which doesn't make "you" available for folks back home to call! We will be going back soon, God willing, maybe by then, I will be "wise" enough to have your system with me!! " SC
You can also purchase other SIM cards as well for other countries to where you may be traveling. (This option is good for those planning on doing a lot of local calling.) We also offer an international roaming Talk Abroad™ SIM Card that is convenient for travel to multiple countries. (This option is useful for those wanting a single number for use in multiple countries and who will be making more calls back home than locally.)
