Why do you need a separate phone tho? Couldn't you just leave your Zoomer sim at home and use your primary device?

Last day for the 3GB plan if they don't extend it.

Get the P10 Lite with $75. Best overall value.

I have a oneplus 5 with zoomer and roam mobility SIM in that phone. I activate RM when I go on U.S. trip, and make all my calls, message and data default with RM

My business phone with BELL roaming actually cost more in minutes messages and data vs RM.

I want to get this plan but want to wait until my prepaid Koodo boosters are used up. I see today is the last day for the 3GB option. Can I call in and request a SIM card, securing 3GB data until I call them back to activate in a month?

I opened a second line with zoomer, waiting for a week to get the SIM to mail over to me from BC. so I don't think they are charging me now. Dunno if they can be hold for a month.

CORRECT me if I'm wrong please.

No, they will set the activation date when they ship the sim card. Usually 1 day after the shipment. You cannot defer the delivery as today is the last day for 3GB.

Thanks...I guess I have to call/message for phone pricing as I see, for example, the P10 Lite is $150 online, but in the OP it says $75 on 2 year term.

Just pair the phone with the $40 plan and you will see it.

Just got back from a trip to US with my Zoomer plan and phone. I got them to switch me to the Canada/US 200min/unlimTXT/500MB plan at the beginning of the trip, then back to the UnlimTALK/TXT/2GB plan when I got back. I should be charged the $60 plan (prorated for the 10 days I had it). I can't confirm that yet, since I just got back. We will see when the bill gets generated tomorrow. The only big risk of doing this is, when you want to switch back to the original plan and for some reason it is unavailable on their system (cancelled, dicontinued etc.), then your stuck with whatever is available.

Very good solution. I think both the plan cost and your usage will be prorated on your next bill.
