Not sure about auto sms from shortcodes, but sms to and from USA are included as part of Canada /international messaging, as long as sent from Canada.

I get my bill today, and I find that $45 is being charged for data roaming fees. $15/day for each of the days that I was there. In total my phone some how used 100kb of data. According to Zoomers roaming chart (zone 3) the charge should of been $3, not $45.

Will call tomorrow to sort this out.

So I called yesterday, and got a 24 hour turn around. It turns out they credited the amount and there was a misprint on the Zoomer Wireless website.

However I am not impressed with the billing of the roaming. Apparently you will be charged $15/MB per DAY even if you only use 1KB of data of roaming - which is what happened with me. Data roaming was turned off. With other carriers such as Bell they know these minuscule amounts are data leakage or perhaps usage mis-calculation so they don't charge.

I may need to find a new carrier. Since they changed the rates to what was agreed and the way it's billed, I may have recourse to break this contract if needed.

I would have been fine if they charged me $15 for the three days that I was there. But that's not what happened - most carriers I've been with have waived these charges automatically, as the amount of data is very, very, very (did I reiterate very?) small. For all I know it could be a counting error on the roaming carriers side.

It's interesting that in Japan I was hit with roaming charges, but the other days in South Korea I was not. Which leads me to suspect the billing for the Japanese carrier is off.



You've said that a couple of times but that doesn't change the fact that I did not use my phone travelling it was just Simply on, and also doesn't help if you are only in a country for say 3 days purchasing a SIM card is not economical if you don't plan to use it.
This was posted in the beginning of December. I was wondering if anyone has traveled outside of Canada with Zoomer phone lately. I will be going to the US for couple days next week and I wouldn't want to get any surprises.
If anyone has any recent Roaming experiences could please share? Thanks.

If you turn off cellular data you will not have to worry about data roaming charges.

I never trusted that turning off data roaming only would do the same thing as the phone is still actively scanning the network, then deciding if it should pass data or not if you are outside your home network/carrier.

Mods: Can we move this thread somewhere other than the hot deals forum? It has devolved into pages of referral requests. ;)

+1

IMHO one of the best options out there - not for everyone of course but certainly is saving a lot of people a lot of money - and the Double Data / Minutes / Texts promotion does not end until Feb 28, therefore, an on-going Hot Deal!!

The fact that people are signing up with Zoomer every day after reading about it in this thread is reason enough for it to be here.

Are these looking for requests strictly reserved for phones?
