    If one goes to the SprintPCS website it looks like the world ends at the
    49th parallel woth zero information about Canada. I tried entering a
    Canadian postal code for Montreal H1Y 2G9 where it asks for a Zip code,
    but it didn't like that either.

    I would suggest going to your closest SprintPCS company store and
    getting an answer in writing. Alternatively, ask your travel agent.

    I was there just over 1 year ago.

    Digital roaming, $0.69/minute. Another quarter for long
    distance. Good service. No problems or hassles.

    Same is true of Ottawa. Totally seemless.

    94 cents a minute is hardly seemless to call home. Must be a cheaper way.

    You are confusing convenience with value. You power up your phone and make
    a call, seamless. No access codes to dial, no fuss. It hasn't always been
    this way.

    You can always use calling cards and a land line. For me, $.94 a minute is
    no big deal because, for the amount I used it while in Canada for a few
    days on business, it is far cheaper than renting a cell phone.

    Also, couldn't you just purchase the 50 roaming minutes bundle? If I
    remember correctly, you can roam in Canada with it, but you will have to pay
    the .25 for long distance.

    Re: Montreal visit

    I do have roaming minutes.
    So I will just have to pay for long distance?

    My wife was in British Columbia in July, 2003. The Airtime Charges
    column of the bill shows 50 cents per minute. The LD/Additional Charges
    column of the bill was zero. All her calls were incoming from the US or
    outgoing to the US. Our 2000 minute plan has the $10
    roaming-included-up-to-50% option (a predecessor to F&CA).

    The roaming bundles are only for domestic roaming. Roaming in Canada is
    considered International Roaming, it is not included in the roaming
    bundle. From the information I have at this time, roaming in Montreal
    Quebec, CA is available and is $.50 per minute plus applicable long
    distance charges.

    I agree with all the posts saying that the service in Canada (I've
    only experience on this in Montreal) was seamless and rock solid.

    I'd add that although I haven't done this in Canada, I've used
    phone cards for international dialing with my cell phone, and that was very
    reasonable. It's just an 800 number after all, so all you use is minutes.
    No need, I'd think, for a land line.
