    Hey everyone-

    I am on Verizon. I am planning on traveling to Montreal, Quebec in a few months for a week. I have heard that the data rates up there are ridiculous! Anyone know what the story is for travelers with Verizon going to the great white north?

    Or should I just bite the bullet?

    Thanks guys!

    Are you looking to do international roaming with Verizon or discontinue verizon service and put in a local sim card?

    If Verizon's Global plan is available for Canada, you can opt in for UNlimited data. Your rate would change from $30 to 65/month (bis).

    sadly I have a Curve so thr SIM card is a non-option.

    I was just curious if Verizon will change my plan for a week, or if the roaming phone rates and the data rates will be so astronomical that I should leave the berry at home...

    ...I'm kidding...back away from the ledge...

    I imagine that Verizon will give you some sort of advance data ($xx.xx for xx mb). We have that option for when we roam - ooh, and if you've been with Verizon for a while then they may give you a better rate.

    Just ask lol.

    If it works like our carriers, there is a substantial premium for roaming voice and data.

    Fortunatly, Canada and the USA premium is low, about $6 Mb. International rates, other then Canada, are much higher, around $30 Mb.
