  • Jesse

    I would love to have a roam mobility SIM card to use with my iPhone 5! Reason being is because I’m usually in the states every 2 months or so especially in Vegas and I currently use t mobile I hate how they don’t have a long distance/ text plan to Canada for the pre pay by the day plans… And with roams unlimited calls and texts to Canada plan it would be so ideal for me!

  • Dan

    i’d LOVE a roam mobility nano SIM!!! Travel to the states monthly (drive from NB through Maine, NH and Mass almost bi-weekly) and would love to be able to use google maps and data without crazy expensive roaming charges and fees!

  • Perfect timing – I was just searching Roam’s website looking for a Nano SIM for an upcoming trip to California! I saw they didn’t have it so I decided to stick with purchasing a T-Mobile SIM – but that’s such a waste of time and I would love to have a Roam Nano SIM. Thanks!

  • John Wells

    I live on the boarder of the US and Canada in Northern Ontario. I am in the US at least twice a week. There are even spots in Canada where you can get an AT&T signal and no Bell signal. I need this card. Goodbye roaming!

  • Andre

    I want one of these because I hate Bell and Rogers and their ridiculous roaming charges. Bell charged me $3 per call for two calls I didn’t even answer once when roaming.

  • Eric B

    I’m a physician who frequently travels to the US for conferences and research meetings. I need to stay in touch with the hospital for patient issues, which I frequently do with data (e-mail and imessage, Citrix, etc). Roam Mobility would save me the head-aches of travel packages and roaming charges!

  • Who doesn’t want to pay cheaper rates when in the US. I love to travel and this will be a great way to save money

  • My fiancee has a cabin in Washington State and we go there often. We’ve considered buying a pay as you go throw away phone in the US, just for when we are there, this would solve the problem and allow me to keep my iPhone 5 which I love.
