Roam Mobility deflates roaming charges, teams up with T-Mobile to spare Canadian wallets


Roaming charges are the big, bad wolf of the wireless industry. And if you happen to be a Canadian with a predilection for crossing the US border, you've likely incurred the wrath of those fees. Enter Roam Mobility, a partnership with T-Mobile that aims to offer Canucks a flat, no strings attached fee when visiting the states. The plans range from a $15 offering for three days worth of unlimited voice and text to $20 for a 500MB allotment of data. If you want to take part, you'll need an unlocked GSM handset or you can always opt for one of the company's own featurephones. The service goes live on the 16th of this month, so mark your calendar and adjust those travel plans accordingly.
