Roam's prices used to be better yes. Pricing is still better than Telus, Koodo, and Zoomer.

Had no issues in NOLA earlier this month and had similar performance in Anaheim as my friend with a Telus phone last year.

I bought one of their SIM card for 5 dollars last year, but I did not had the chance to use it since we decided this year to visit locally. I received a message that the SIM will be permanently deactivated if I don't buy credit which I didn't, so they disabled the card afterwards. Oh well, if you get it free, get it, but know that you are required to add credit every year to keep it active.
Did you open the package? I bought a pack of two 2 years ago, never opened the package. I hope they're still good. If this free one will also expire I won't bother getting it. I just got back from the US and probably won't go again until next year.

Darn it, I didn't think to try entering a fake phone number. Anyone try?

For what purpose?
So they won't have your real number in case they want to spam. They probably won't, but I see no reason for them to ask for a phone number.

Did any of you get an email notification that you have ordered one after submitting the form?
Not me.

You can't copy/paste the hyperlink. It doesn't work because RFD adds their referral garbage to it. OP should edit the original post and check "Do not automatically parse URLs".

That's what I thought too, I have 2 of their sims, non-activated.
I thought it only expires after a year after your first use.

It must be the registration that started counting. In that case I still have hope for my other two sims. Keeping fingers crossed.

I ordered a sim 3 weeks ago directly from the roam mobility site and it still hasn't arrived. I sent a support ticket a week ago and I still haven't received a response. Is this normal?

Ordered on the 24th and just got an email from Roam Mobility saying the SIM card has shipped.

Update: SIM card received in the mail yesterday (Aug. 29th).

Ordered on Sunday and was hoping it would arrive before next Tuesday when I fly out. Haven’t received any email so I guess not.
