Roaming in LA/LV? Options?

Good Monday to you all,

I will be going to LA/LV during Xmasfor about 10 days

My wife both have unlocked iPhones that don't have roaming on Fido's plan.

I know Rogers/fido has the $5/day roaming package.

We really need it just for data when we are out and not in a wifi area (driving, googleing restaurants etc)

Thanks in advance

Take a look and see if roam mobility covers the area you want to go. If it does, just get a sim from them, it's easy to get up and running and I think has the same price point. $5 a day.

Roam Mobility didn't work for me in Las Vegas. That's was 2 years ago. Maybe it has improved.

The OP just need data. Can$17 for 1 Gb a week is good enough for social media and browsing. You can return call from Canada using hangout dialer.

FreedomPop if you can grab the sim cards before the trip. I hear they sell the sim cards at BestBuy in the US, so it might be a worthy way of getting extremely inexpensive data in the US, especially now that they have LTE (probably not super fast, but better than 3G).
