Hello @mamie2222 

 

"Hi  I am looking to buy the $100 gophone to use when I am in the US  can I use my canada Fido plan to add the gophone?"

 

No, you will have a separate plan with AT&T, you can see Go Phone plans HERE

 

"Do I need a Data  plan also what is that for? I am just learning about all this"

 

You don't have to have a data plan, but if you do get it, it'll allow you to access the web, check email, use social media and perform other Online activities away from Wi-Fi hotspots. Since you're visiting, it will also allow you to use your phone for navigation and directions.

 

"Can I get the $100 dollar on a smartphone that I will purchasing? Any advise will be appreciated."

 

If the phone is priced at $100, it'll only pay for the phone, you'll need to add some money to buy your plan on top of that, depending on how long you're staying, you might be able to purchase 30 days of service with 500 minutes, unlimited text messaging and 200 MB of data for $40. With any plan that includes unlimited texting, you will have free texting to Canada as well.

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

 

Thanks,

Dmitriy
