I offer my phone for short USA calls at that grand sum of a cent a minute.

Yes, I have an x large phone plan at the moment.

That new plan sounds great if it will apply to Canada!

They have just come out with a different plan, not sure it applies to Canada however. It is $20 per month with texting and data, phone calls cost $1 per minute.

That is so nice of you. You could see our 21' when we pick up. Oh, wait, you have one!

I stand corrected, the new plan is still $30 and is available in Canada. It also offers something called WiFi Hotspots, which from what I can tell, is pretty lame. Certain cities and airports have free WiFi that allows free data and calling. They are so few as to be almost meaningless.

Called Passport, this maybe the only ATT option for the occasional traveller.

If you have some hybrid plan from AARP, I would call ATT and ask. I found good customer service in my infrequent contact.

Skype should work up there with Internet. I'm kind of looking forward to being off the net for a week. My Virgin Mobile was useless for 9 days on this trip and I kind of enjoyed it!
