Hi,

Does anyone know if the MetroPCS will make and receive calls in Alberta and British Columbia? I.E. will it work on Ma Bell and/or Telus towers?

i have NO idea if it will roam, if it does, it will cost a lot for the roaming fees

if you mean BUY a metro PCS phone and activate it on telus, I am real sure the answer is NO


Options, always have options, and the journey goes much smoother

Metro PCS does not roam and has a very limited coverage area.

Hi,

The phone belongs to a friend who will be visiting the Banff, Lake Louis, Radium Hot Springs and Invermere areas. I hoped someone here might know who their roaming partner(s) in Canada are.

Cost is apparently $5.00 for 30 minutes of talk time--but if there is zero coverage....that is not too useful.
