As you may recall, Roam Mobility is a Canadian company dedicated to providing Canadians with a better way to travel through the United States without having to pay expensive roaming and long distance charges to their home Canadian carriers. What you get instead is a real US number and real US service without having to deal with any contracts or service agreements with a US carrier. It’s all pay as you go — $3/day gets you unlimited talk and text and $1/day gets you 100MB of data per day — and it’s there when you need it, even if you only travel to the States once a year.
If you already have an unlocked GSM phone, all you need is a Roam SIM card. Alternatively, Roam also sells its unlocked Breeze dual-SIM phone for $49.95 and its Liberty mobile hotspot for $129.95. Roam utilizes the T-Mobile network, so an AWS phone is best.
As with the first two weeks, the travel prize pack for week three remains the same.
- Roam Mobility USA Travel SIM Card ($19.95 value)
- One week of talk + text + data service ($27.95 value)
The SIM card is available as a standard SIM for most mobile phones, as well as in micro-SIM form for iPhone 4/4S, iPad and iPad mini, and in nano-SIM size for the iPhone 5. The seven continuous days of service includes unlimited talk and text within the US and back to Canada, free voicemail and caller ID, and 700MB of data on the nationwide 4G network with data speeds of up to 21Mbps.
How to Enter Week Three
Tell us about your worst roaming horror story ever. How much did they charge you? What would you have done differently?
Week three of our four week contest series with Roam Mobility closes Sunday, June 30, 2013 at midnight Pacific time. Giveaway number four begins immediately afterwards on Monday, July 1 (Canada Day!), so make sure you come back to see how you can enter that giveaway. We’ll announce the winners of all four contests at the conclusion of the four weeks.
Winners will be contacted via e-mail and have 48 hours to respond with their preferred shipping address. Due to the nature of Roam Mobility’s service, this contest is open only to Canadians with a Canadian mailing address. If you’re not in Canada, but we can ship to somewhere in Canada, that’s okay too. We reserve the right to alter or adjust this contest in any way at any time and all decisions are final. Good luck!
