Living in Canada is a beautiful experience, but the winters can be fairly brutal and so for years, those retired folks that can afford it, become “snowbirds” – a rare species that we also find in the northern U.S. states. These “snowbirds” – both Canadian and in the U.S. – flock to the southern parts of the U.S…most to sunny Florida where they perform strange rituals, such as, golfing, shuffle boarding, boating, go to early bird specials and even sun bathing. One characteristic all of the “snowbirds” have in common – they want to use their mobile phones to keep in touch with their family and friends…somebody has to remind those of us that stay back in the cold just how warm it is in sunny Florida.
One of the problems the Canadians are faced with are those dreaded roaming charges while they are in the States – Roam Mobility is helping to solve that very problem by offering a $19.95 per month ‘Snowbird Plan’ with unlimited U.S. Talk and Text. Emir Aboulhosn, founder and CEO of Roam Mobility said, “Our goal has always been to make roaming an afterthought, so we’re pleased to provide Canadians living part-time in the U.S. with the lowest priced Tier 1 service in North America. For less than $1 a day, Canadians can stay connected with their American friends as well as call family and friends back home in Canada; at a price that would make any American jealous and wondering why they can’t get the same deal.”
For those “snowbirds” that would like some data to go along with that unlimited talk and texting, they have a ‘Snowbird Talk + Text + Data Plan’ and for an extra $20 a month, you can have 2GB of data thrown in for a total monthly plan of $39.95 a month. It is simple and easy to use with no contracts, no eligibility requirements and it is open to all Canadians traveling to the U.S. You simply purchase a Roam Mobility SIM for your existing unlocked phone and activate it when you want to start your three-month period. If you are traveling to the U.S. for a shorter period of time, Roam Mobility has unlimited daily plans that cost $1.95, $2.95 or $3.95 a day, depending on the service you need while in the U.S.
