I see the option to add Data, but nothing for the phone...
@David S. 80352
unfortunately this option is not available for this coverage area, Fizz recommend purchasing a local SIM card. This will give you access to better rates on data. You can also buy a Travel Add-on and use messaging apps (Text-Now, whatsApp, Messenger...) to stay in touch on the road instead of calling and texting.
I just bought a phone through Fizz. Can I assume that is unlocked and will allow for a new SIM card?
Absolutely, since all Canadian service providers are now obliged to make it possible to unlock the devices, according to the law.
You're welcome! : )
Hello @David S. 80352, not all North American devices are 100% compatible with every provider around the world. Chances are it will work, just not on all frequencies. Buying a local SIM is generally a better idea when traveling outside North America. Another option is to use a WIFI calling/texting app if you will have good access to WIFI.
