Appreciate if anybody can buy at a 7/11 store and ship to an address in Michigan. I'd like to activate and use it on my Nexus 4. Will be using for data only. Will pay through PayPal.

Questions :

1. Can I activate it while in US (thru the website)?
2. May I just take the $10 data plan only.

Thanks. Please send a PM or email kalyan dot bhaumik at gmail

I think you are better off to just go to a Petro Canada or 7 Eleven when you are in Canada, and pay $10 for the SIM. You also need air time, of which $25 is the lowest amount you can buy. So you are in it for $35 plus tax.

You can just get unlimited browsing which normally would be good for 2 months with a $25 credit. Not all that useful in your situation, I know. You can make 55 minutes of local calls in addition to browsing with that credit.

You also have to cut the SIM to size, because it won't fit in your nexus otherwise. There is an APN setting that have to be entered also. You can set up the APN profile anytime, even when in the US, and activate them when you have the SIM

I do not believe you can activate using a US address. You can activate in the US, and I believe you can use a US credit card, but you need a Canadian address.

And another thing, it is unlimited mobile browsing offered, not data. So streaming, VOIP, messaging will either not work, or be extremely restricted. Just want to make sure you know what you are getting.

I think if you are only going to be here for 4 days, it would be less hassle to just use the wifi here. There is a MacDonald's or Tim Horton's everywhere, and both offer free wifi. There are other sources of free wifi also.
