    Call Telus and see what US data plan they can give you, my experience in the US is I use 1MB-4MB per day with text email and BBM, if you limit yourself to just BBM and don't send/receive many pics ( BBM does compress them a lot even if you do) you should be fine.

    if you try and send SMS you will be charged through the nose!

    I pay $1/MB when traveling in the US with my plan with Rogers, you may have to Prebuy data with Telus, so use a 2MB/day assumption.

    exact same plan $10 monthly $1/mb of use, txting would be an add of for me, I don't SMS except for with the 2 people of whom I txt before I go to the US and tell them not to txt me.

    Nope

    Nationwide will state "Originating in Canada"
    I have North American Wide Calling on my Plan, but again North American wide Calling as long as the call Originated in Canada, once I am roaming in the US I pay fees for voice and text no matter who they are
