No? I have never been with a provider that did not have the ability to make calls/texts outside of their coverage area. Especially given how lucrative it can be with the usual roaming fees.
In most circumstances, buying a prepaid SIM outside of the US and Canada is the most sensible, cost effective thing to do. When you are expecting important calls from folks that are not immediate friends and family though (e.g. contractors), it is pretty limiting to not have the ability to at least answer the call for a potentially exorbitant cost.mouseontherun wrote: ↑ That's because anywhere outside US/Canada, calls and data are way cheaper, and paying for roaming is not interesting. Just an example (Orange in Romania, but similar schemes are available in all of Europe), for 6 Euros/30 days you can have a prepaid SIM with unlimited calls and text and 100GB of data available for 100 days. Still upset about the high price of roaming outside Canada?
