Where to purchase/buy SIM card?

You can purchase pre-paid SIM cards in most stores which sell cell phones. Many malls with have Bell, Rogers, Telus, or other stores or stalls selling phone or SIM cards. You'll also find them in many electronic stores sell phones and cards -- London Drugs, the Source, FutureShop, and even Walmart. You may even find a few at airports.


First, your cell phone must be unlocked. Most US carriers sell cell phone which are locked to operate only on their networks. They won't accept other SIM cards. If you are leasing your phone (i.e. have a contract) they typically won't allow it to be unlocked until the contract is up or you pay off your phone.

Second, you may need to check what type of cell phone you have and which types of cards it accepts. You can visit the Canadian carriers' web sites to see if they have SIMs for your phone.

Third, you get a new (Canadian) phone number. Certain phone features may also not work without programming the phone. This make calling, text messages, etc. somewhat limited.

When travelling to other countries, I tend to just turn my phone to airplane mode and use WiFi. Handle communication via email, web-sites,(website hidden) FaceTime/(website hidden), etc. Many places in Canada have free WiFi. If you really need to make voice calls... you can look at international calling plans via your provider. My wife also bought a super-cheap phone in the US and merely puts $5 on it once a year to keep it activated.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I enjoyed my stay.

    Erwin is really nice. hE MAKE his best to satisfied you.

    The place is clean, all furnished and really close to the TTC.

    I definitly recommend the EWIN PLACE

    January 2014
  • It is really a pleasant experience to stay in Erwin's place, comfortable. quiet, and the most important, economical; moreover, Erwin is a helpful and very friendly host.
    Public transportation (just two mins walk to nearest bus stop), banks (TD, RBC, HSBC), and grocery stores nearby, all these make this stay so valuable. Definitely recommend to travelers or people who seek for short stay, thank you so much Erwin!

    October 2013
  • The stay was great, the accommodation proposed by Erwin is very comfortable and pleasant. Erwin is very friendly, and it is very well organized. I recommend Erwin and the economy room for those who want to spend a pleasant stay in Toronto. Thank you.

    July 2013
  • My experience at Erwins place was very good concerning the price. I was lucky to get the room for couples because the one which was reservated for me was on renovation. I spent a week at this quiet spot and had the whole house almost for me alone. Erwin is a very nice guy who will help you with all your needs. From my view the house was clean and safe maybe other persons have a different opinion but for this price you defenitely cant complain! You will need more or less 15 min to walk to the subway and from there about 20 min to drive to the centre. For people who stay just a day or 2 its maybe a little far to downtown but if you are not in a hurry its just perfect. Eglington Street is just around the corner and there are a couple of malls and outlet factory stores so if you want to buy some stuff better get it there because its a lot cheaper than the shops downtown. Restaurants, supermarkets and convinience stores are also not far away. So for me it was just perfect and i only can recommend it if you want to save some money for your stay in toronto.

    June 2013
  • Erwin was a very nice host, and was very accommodating. Very pleased with this host.

    May 2013
  • Thank you to Erwin for excellent gust house.

    December 2012
  • Very good place, very close to many shopping places, resturants, banks and subways (there is a shortcut to the subway about 10 min walking). quite place very very safe and clean, organized with all included (TV, Wi-Fi, hot water, heater)
    The host was very kindly to me, nice to talk to him, respectful open to answer all questions and help.
    Highly Recommended!

    December 2012
  • After a problem during the first night I got a free upgrade to a better room. I thought wow, that's hospitality. Erwin is a very nice guy and good to talk with. The house is in a safe and quiet neighborhood. If you're looking for an affordable accommodation in Toronto that's the right place.

    November 2012
  • Great experience!
    Erwin told me basic rules, I did everything I needed to do...

    Basic room but everything you need for a cheap comfortable stay...

    September 2012
