    Canada / Mexico

    I have a tablet with 200mb free for life data. Have had the plan for about a year.

    I'm going to Canada next weekend for a day. Can I use my data there at this point? Do I need to update my plan or will it just work?

    Or do I need to buy a one day or monthly pass?

    Or do I need a postpaid account?

    Thanks!

    The 200 MB data only works on T-Mobile's native network. You can't use it on US or foreign roaming partners.
    SaskTel 306, Rogers 647 data, Rogers 306 flex tablet, Bell 519 flex tablet, Wind 587, PureTalkUSA 406, T-Mobile 716 & 347 prepaid, AT&T iPad SIM 716, T-Mobile postpaid data 619, Toggle Mobile (UK/FR/US), GiffGaff (UK)

    GSM phones: Too many to list.

    Are you sure about that. This page says...

    http://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/prepaid-internet

    "Get free data for the life of your tablet.

    Get 200MB of data FREE every month in the US, Canada, and Mexico for as long as you own and use your tablet at T-Mobile. No annual service contract and no domestic overages. (Roaming not included.)"


    Now I know it says roaming not included but it also clearly says 200MB free every month in US, Canada and Mexico.

    The ad/page doesn't make any sense and is very confusing. How can you get 200MB free every month in US, Canada, and Mexico if roaming is not included. The device will roam in Canada since T-Mobile doesn't have a native network in Canada.
