their system doesn't actually check your credit card for billing address, the payment will go thru even if your billing address you entered doesn't match up with your card's billing address.

I’ve read you do not need to activate at Walmart. What check does ATT do to verify that you have bought a phone?

That didn't work for me. It only worked after my credit card zip matched the zip for phone number. I have a US card with my sister's address.

Which zip did you choose? Maybe I should have used Michigan instead.

Also interested in joining a group. Will travel to the states 1st week of July and can get the phone and sim there unless there is already an existing phone/sim that can be sent/activated for me. Thanks

I have fongo

Hit or miss tbh

I have it forwarded to my USA number but ported over my Canadian number for the texting

Overall it works and are one of very few companies that have texting and portability

If you don't care about your phone number look elsewhere

I used an address in Newport, OR to activate my att number that begins with 541. For my CC billing info, all are my Canadian except the zip code, I used the digits associated with the characters followed by 00( I read some other threads saying should be using the number digits in Canadian postcode followed by 00)

I did the same but it didn't work. That sucks.
.
Fyi for others. I'm heading to US. Pm for my cell number if you want me to buy you one and ship.

I have slots available in my group.

Fongo works with SMS texting or only between fongo users?

For SMS, Fongo is free to send SMS to other fongo users. Its also free to receive SMS from ANY number.

If you want to be able to send SMS outside of fongo users, then you need to purchase an Add-on.
