CLOSED! MEGATech Weekly Giveaway 1 of 4: Win a Roam Mobility SIM Card and a Week of Free Service Michael Kwan June 10, 2013 This contest is closed, but you still have a chance with week 4 of our weekly giveaways with Roam Mobility. Check out the contest post for full details! We like to give away free stuff to our fans and followers. So far this year, we’ve partnered up with Diamond Multimedia and IDAPT for multiple giveaways, as well as with PIVOS for another contest. Are you ready to win more free stuff? Because we’re ready to give more away! What Is Roam Mobility? This time around, we’ve partnered up with a Canadian company called Roam Mobility to help provide “mobility for the traveler.” The main idea behind their service is to make it easy for Canadians to travel to the United States and avoid those nasty roaming charges and long distance fees levied by their current Canadian providers. If you have an unlocked GSM phone (ideally one with AWS), you’re ready to roll with rates that are far better than what you’d get charged for roaming. The plans are prepaid, so you’re never locked into any contracts or monthly fees. Plans start at $3 per day for unlimited talk and text including calls back to Canada, so you don’t pay any long distance fees. Add data to your plan for $1 per day for 100MB per day. You only pay for the service when you need it, even if you only travel once a year. In fact, you can prepay and “time stamp” your service ahead of time, saying that you’ll be in the States between such and such dates, and you can be set the moment you step foot on American soil. Roam Mobility uses T-Mobile’s nationwide network (which is why an unlocked GSM/AWS phone is best), so you can be sure you’ll get great coverage and great wireless data speeds. And because you’re dealing with a Canadian company, there’s no messing around with a US carrier, even if you get a real US phone number. Interestingly, Roam Mobility got started because the founders were hit with a giant roaming bill one time and they declared, “Never again!” What Can You Win? So, what’s up for grabs in this first week of giveaways? 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 Do You Enter? We’re keeping this first week really simple. Using the comment form on this post, answer the following question: Where are you traveling to in the United States this summer and how will Roam Mobility help you save money? Week one of our four week contest series with Roam Mobility closes Sunday, June 16, 2013 at midnight Pacific time. Giveaway number two begins immediately afterwards on Monday, June 17, 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! Share This With The World!
