    If you need to roam, then "where you can roam" is ALSO an important issue.

    Well, that's silly. If I live in the US and travel up to Canada often,
    are you saying I should go sign up with Telus or Rogers and pay monthly
    for a Canadian phone as well as an American phone?

    Your statement ignores the fact that we are talking about roaming in Canada.
    Getting another phone is, by an large, an impractical proposition.
