prepaid cell plans for Canada and US calls

by JEmlay / March 22, 2006 4:38 AM PST

I would like to purchase a prepaid mobile phone and service for a friend who is moving to Canada. I would like the number to be a local number for Canada, but I would like to be able to call this friend from the US without outrageous rates. Does anyone know which company is the best for this? I've been trying to research this myself, but it's been crazy figuring out all of the rules. Even if the phone number ends up being a US number, that would be fine, if there is an option to call back forth without lots of fees and charges. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Sonni68
