Making and receiving calls
Bell has agreements with trusted partners, giving you access to a vast wireless coverage area in the U.S., including extensive 3G coverage.
When roaming, your phone will automatically connect to one of our partner networks. When you return to Canada, your phone will reconnect to the Bell network. In both cases, it can take up to 5 minutes to establish a connection.
Making a call
When you're travelling in the U.S., making a phone call is as simple as dialling from home. Simply dial 1 + area code + the 7-digit number and press SEND to complete your call. You'll be billed the U.S. voice roaming airtime rate.
Receiving a call
You can automatically receive calls when you travel anywhere in the U.S. if you're in an area where wireless coverage is available. When you receive a call, you'll be billed the U.S. airtime rate.
For customer support when travelling in the U.S., call or *611 free from your mobile phone or 1 800 667-ROAM (7626) free from any phone.
