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, FB, FaceTime/Skype, 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.
