    HSPA roaming

    I noticed on the PC Mobile website it says: " HSPA devices not capable of roaming outside of Canada at this time. Visit pctelecom.ca/phones to get the latest updates on all phones."

    Can anyone confirm by experience whether this is the case? On PC HSPA does it just refuse to connect to American networks?

    I ask because one device in which I use my SIM, with grandfathered unlimited data, has trouble detecting roaming, and could be liable to eat up my balance if I pick up a USA signal. So actually I'd *prefer* that it refuse to roam :-)

    Even if it works on HSPA phones you would need them to enable on your account before you would be able to roam.

    I just phoned to verify. I was told that all roaming for HSPA phones is disabled for the foreseeable future. So if I am near the border there is no chance of accidental roaming because the US network shouldn't allow me to connect.
