Hello. I would like to buy a SpeakOut wireless SIM card for my son to use. He is headed to Canada on July 19th. I live in Maryland so it would be ideal if we didn't have to deal with shipping from Canada but that could also work fine - we have enough time. Let me know if you can help me out. Thanks so much.

It might be easier for him to buy a SIM card once he gets here. Just drop by a 7-Eleven.

I would rather acquire it before he departs so I can set up the account. He won't have a computer while at the cottage. Thank you!

If he is going to be at a cottage, then there is a chance that he will be out of cell phone range. Verify with his hosts that you can get a Rogers signal there.

You know, the simplest option would be for him to just text using his American phone.

Thank you - I would like to give SpeakOut a try and have an unlocked blackberry for him to use. He doesn't have a phone normally and I would like to talk to him as his spelling is just terrible [Image Can Not Be Found] Rodgers works at our cottage which is near Bala.

Here is my solution. Have your hosts purchase the sim card for $10 plus a $25 voucher (the minimum) from a 7-Eleven store. It is possible to activate the sim card through Customer Service, so you don't have to have a computer. Just phone 1-866-310-1023 from another phone.

It might even be possible for your host to do this ahead of the boy's arrival. He could then just pop in the sim card.
