I think the residency requirements probably are the stop gap here unfortunately. If I'm not mistaken, U.S. post paid plans are only available to citizens or permanent residents/folks here on certain work visas. AFAIK You could do pre-paid though. There's nothing about the handset that's stopping you provided it has the correct frequency bands.
I have a question about purchasing an active dual sim card phone. I currently cross the border on a daily basis and figured it would be time to have a US cell phone plan to save money on my cell phone bill (Rogers is my current phone plan and they currently offer $25 for 500 North America minutes but I'm hoping to add AT&T or another company to get unlimited My5 while I'm in Detroit)
I found the Samsung D880 and D780 as affordable active dual sim card phones and was wondering if they would work with Rogers and another service provider (let's say AT&T).
I currently cross the Windsor (Ontario) border to Detroit (Michigan)
Thank you for your help!
