Hello DivD,


  Welcome to the community!


  In addition to what was mentioned below, what phone do you have? Also, you should note some plans (ie Basic Plans) do not allow for roaming.


  It would be important to note that the US has shut-down their '3G' networks (see here). If your phone and plan are not voice-over-LTE (voLTE) capable, you might not be able to use voice or messaging services. As well, since the US has shut-down those networks, they no longer offer US roaming services for pre-paid plans.


  As mentioned below, if you have a plan other than the Basic plans, it would already have Fido Roam included. If you did not wish to use Fido Roam, you would need to opt-out of the feature. In doing so, any usage would be on a pay-per-use basis. You can view those rates here.


Hope this helps 😀




Hello @DivD,


All Fido post-paid plans come with Roam-Like Home meaning you just go and you would be able to use your device as if you were in Canada and makes calls in the US and back to Canada and it will be $12/day or you can opt-out and use the par-per-use rate, you can get more information here.


Your other option is to get a local pre-paid service when you go there.
