I live in Canada but need temporary cell phone service in the US.

So you’re coming to the land of the United States but not sure how to stay connected you’re your cell phone. Don’t worry, there’s some good news. Getting a cell phone plan in the US isn’t very difficult as there’s dozens of carriers you can switch to for you visit.

The most important thing you’ll first need to have is an unlocked smartphone. Once you have an unlocked phone, you’ll want to select a carrier that supports the phone you own. If you have an unlocked GSM phone, you can switch to any of the carriers by following this link here. Those carriers would all likely support your phone as they run off of a GSM network. Sprint and Verizon will likely not be a feasible option as they run off of network technology called CDMA. Canadian networks stopped supporting CDMA phones in May 2016 which makes switching to one of these carriers seemingly impossible.
