Hubby is moving to Cananda for 8-12 months for work. What kind of cell phone service is good for US/ Canada calls?

Thanks ladies! :-)

Don't phone companies transfer survive automatically?

No, we need something that is not 5 cents a text, or .99 a minute once you go to another country- that one is Mexico- not sure in Canada.

We use Skype. It's $3 a month for unlimited. I've got unlimited data so it works best for us.

To call my hubby- he would have to be connected to the Internet though right?

Not necessarily. Only the one making the call does.

Good luck. :)

SO and I have been long distance for 5 years. We've tried a lot of things.
