Arriving in the US this summer with an unlocked IPhone.....is there a store inside of PHX that sells SIM cards? Thanks
Terminal 4 has InMotion that has SIM cards. There's also an iStore now that should have them.
What is the cost (roughly) for a SIM card that is good for one week? The only time I have bought SIM cards in the past is while traveling in Asia for a month.
My situation is common: I am from Canada and going to Sedona for a week. I am wondering if I should pay roaming charges or buy a SIM card that is good for 7 days or contact my provider (Bell Canada) and ask about what packages/add-on they might have for travel to USA.Edited: 19 December 2018, 02:06
Clarification: Canadian that needs USA SIM card for 1 week. I expect that I might need it for a few text messages only but not tons of them ... picking someone at the airport 7 hours after I land ... would be nice if we can connect. Wifi might work but not as well so my three options are:
1. Buy a USA card
2. Use my Canadian service provider as is and accept the roaming charges (Bell Canada)
3. Buy a "package" from my service provider
Any thoughts? Any idea of the cost of option #1.Edited: 19 December 2018, 02:23
Call Bell and ask about an international roaming package. I’m with Koodo, but every carrier has their own roaming packages. Usually you can add them on to your plan for a week at minimal cost.
Seem in my case maybe just pay the roaming fee and pop the SIM card out when not using it.
Many many years ago, in the days of flip phones, I went to a 7 day conference in Disneyland and didnt buy any package .. just used when necessary. In the end, I got $1000 phone bill due to roaming charges ... lesson learned hopefully.Edited: 20 December 2018, 02:22
At $8 a day to roam with calling and text from Bell, I'd be adding the package. If not, you run the risk of having what already has happened to you. Peace of mind for $60 or so for the week seems like a no brainer.Edited: 20 December 2018, 02:43
