Active Dual Sim card with Rogers (Canada) and a US company

by ffffouad / November 28, 2009 12:46 PM PST

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!

residency requirements for post-paid plans
by Pepe7 / November 29, 2009 1:54 AM PST

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.

Thank you Pepe for the help

I was planning on asking a friend of mine to add me to his family plan (just an extra $15 or so to add another person to the line).

Again thanks =)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
