    So i will be leaving for Los Angeles in about a month, and BELL does not offer any half decent roaming packages, so i need a good pre-paid option for my BlackBerry Bold that allows me unlimited everything. The T-Mobile $50 monthly 4G looks great and i can order off of Ebay before i leave. What needs to be done once the SIM card arrives?

    The T-Mobile operator said id need to pay a $3 or $20 activation fee, but did not really elaborate on the difference.

    Any further information and things to watch out for would be greatly appreciated.

    watch out for your activtion, they dont process canadian credit cards.

    I had this issue initially.
    and TMO will only give you EDGE and not 3g/4g with your Bell 9900.

    Yes, i heard something like this, therefore i would have to use a pre-paid credit card. Also i heard something of a $10 add-on? Is it necessary, as i do not want family, co-workers and friends back in Canada incurring any extra charges.
