MetroPCS, a no contract plan does offer a weekly rate... plus, you can by a bundle to talk to and from different countries. I am not sure which bundle pack you would get for Canada, but you can check www.metropcs.com to see the rates, plans, and features. Usually the travel packs are around $5/month. The downside? ur phone has to be a MetroPCS (althou they merged recently to t-mobile so if u have that may be worth a try). Since MetroPCS doesn't offer a contract u must pay for a phone. But really if ur looking for just a short thing u may buy an old really cheap one for like $10/$20 bucks and STILL get unlimited everything. Toss when ur done or save it so all u do is reactivate if u go again. No contract, remember? Another thing you can try is buying a phone in Canada that's a cheap throwaway. Canada is a popular destination for those of us in the states, so they may have pay-by-the-minutes phones like we do that cross the country lines. Good luck and have fun up there.

Unfortunately ... no. The Canadian cell phone companies suck.

There are no "disposable" phones like the US has.

You can buy sim card with a canadian number. swap the sim card out in your phone.

There is NO way to jump over. You will incur HUGE charges. Sorry. It stinks.

No... Sorry... But why are you coming to Canada NOW?! It's freezing (here at least. If there is a warm spot...please tell me) Bring good winter clothes, and get some coffee at Tim Hortons.
