I am Canadian PR and also working on H1B. I moved from Canada to US on H1B. I have Canadian cell phone plan which is really costly when I am using in US. My all Canada bank & Govt. accounts are using Canadian phone number and because of this i am keeping my Canada number since couple of months but it is really costly. I am looking for options, what is best way to have cell phone plan which can reduce the bill as well as I can operate all US and canada bank accounts and Govt. account on one phone number . Please share your experience if anyone are in same situation. Thank you.
Most telecom company's have sweet talking telemarketers who will call and straight off start asking questions about how often you call long distance, how do you call etc...
This is all a scam. At first they will not give you opportunity to ask any question, and then they will offer you some too good to be true scheme (like 4-5 months of a lot of free international call minutes or 4cents a minute) and insist you sign up for it....
Please be careful of such scams. There will be many hidden charges and you will get a big fat bill!
Always, if you are tempted, ask them to mail you some brochures you can read and make up your mind..don't believe their word on the phone.
I was scammed like this by Verizon when I was new to teh country and now MCI tried to pull this same stunt on me but I was wiser after having paid huge sums of money to Verizon!
