If you have Shaw for TV/Internet you can port it for $20 (the sim fee) and use the free plan for as long as you want?

numberbarn.com is $5 USD one-time + $2 USD a month. It can take some time port it back out (1-2 weeks) as it's a landline number service. Also, 2FA SMS codes won't work.

I currently pay $27 a month with Zoomer for 2GB and Canadawide calling.

If I switch to the $30 plan here I would get the same 2GB. Please can you clarify the PCO points? Do you get 20,000 points every top up? So every month?? Or do you get 20,000 as one-time after 2 months and then every month of $30 top-up you get 3,000 points? If so then this works out to the same cost of $27 as Zoomer for me.

i would use something like Public Mobile to park your number at, take the cheapest plan at $15 a month, top it up at 2 and half months or earlier and it will be good for another 2 and half months, maybe somebody can confirm!! Thats what i did when i went to Mexico for 6 months 2 years ago!! I would still get the sim card at PC mobile and use your PC points to get the sim card, you would just pay the taxes!

No real reason to switch from Zoomer to PC Mobile unless you get poor reception with Rogers Network (Zoomer).

The 20,000 points is one time.

The 5% PC optimum points back is monthly, another 5% if you have PC MC

The big difference is this is prepaid and doesn't require a credit check

I upvoted because it's a good way to port a number out to wait for a winback call while still getting good/reliable services.

Freedom has $99 for the year plan. You can park it or use it. Pretty cheap .

Voip.ms is 0.85usd / month. I think it's $10 to port in. Sms is flaky right now on it but calls are fine.

I had a hell experience porting in to voip,ms, where I had to abandon the port. I am sure they are fine with the big 3 and their flankers, but other voip providers without an invoice, good luck!

Fongo is a good option. You can still use the service when overseas! $25 port in, but other than that, everything else is free. when back on Canada, you can forward the Fongo number to a new provider.

I ported in from italkbb years back. But haven't done it in years. I do remember having to pay back then.

$30 for 2GB is not a hot price. I rather zoomer's $36 plan unlimited everything and then 6GB LTE. It's on Rogers network.

You beat me to it. I 100% agree with this option as being the best. You can use Fongo over WiFi and call back to Canada and still receive calls too. Once again, only while you're connected to WiFi. @bridonca is brilliant!!

As a side option if available, if they have affordable data only SIM's where you're going, you can have your Canadian number with you wherever you go.
