Mobile Share Value 2GB when travelling to Canada
Soon, I'll be travelling to Canada for a week. I have a dual-sim (Microsoft Lumia 950XL) phone.
While in Canada, I would like to continue to text and make/receive calls on my US phone number. Additionally, I would like access to cellular data while in Canada.
and it says:
For voice, data and messaging options in Mexico and Canada for customers who do not have an AT&T Unlimited, Mobile Share or Mobile Share Value plan, view AT&T Passport feature options.
However, I cannot find anything on the page that's specific for people with Mobile Share Value plans (with less than 15GB of data).
If I log into my account and select "I want to..." and then "Manage my plan" and then "View International Options" and then "Travel Outside the U.S." I'm brought to a window that is titled "Mexico Travel". Is Mexico the only place for travel outside the U.S.?
I viewed the AT&T Passport feature options even if I wasn't supposed to. They appear to discount rates for talk, text and data when travelling outside the U.S. with an initial outlay of $30, $60 or $120.
I'm very new to AT&T. My old cellular network gives me the option of charging $2/day when I'm in Canada to make my current US plan limits portable to Canada.
I looked at the phone settings I have for SIMs, and I have a "Use this SIM for cellular data", as well as selecting data roaming options of "don't roam", "roam" for each SIM.
The overarching question is: what should someone in my situation do? I think this breaks down into the following sub-questions:
1. Does my Mobile Share Value 2GB plan include ANYTHING Canada-specific (ie, talk, text, data)
2. Is a Mobile Share Value Plan with 2GB eligible for AT&T Passport?
3. Is AT&T Passport the only option (besides exorbinant "pay as you go $2/MB)?
4. Can I get a second SIM with a data package from a Canadian cellular provider?
5. If I get a second SIM, and I set the AT&T SIM to not access data while roaming, what would I pay for talk & text (expecting 15 minutes talk, and 30 text msgs).
