    hi i found this one to be the best deal for me, and it only took like 3 days to get hear and i live in darwin (5 mins from the middle of know where)

    and type in TELCO10 which gives you 10 percent off which is better than nothing.
    hope this helps

    it will be cheaper to have a sim card for Canada and one for the USA that way you don’t get charged roaming rates. Sim cards are expensive in Canada & USA $50 just for the sim card with no credit. I found that it was cheaper to buy a pre-paid phone in each country. I found AT&T the Cheapest $15 for the phone and sim card (USA) you can get really great text packages $5 for 200 messages. Hope this helps. I have travelled with an international sim card I got in Australia the problem I found was I could only recharge by credit card and it charged me in US$ and it was really hard to call home on (very complicated). Hope this helps

    i’ve just had the same thoughts going on…
    i decided to go with the one that’s run thru contiki. it’s only 35 cents to send international sms and 15c to receive – which is pretty much all i’ll be using it for
    they have them at www.contiki.ekit.com
    or more specifically www.simplecalling.com
    and these are for USA & Canada, with cheaper rates from bigger cities, like LA, NY, Toronto etc
