Hi, I was talking recently about buying a cell phone because we want to travel into the U.S.A. soon from Canada. A person said to me to wait until we got into the States and buy a throwaway phone from stores like Walmart etc and said that they were fairly cheap and you could keep buying extra time for them and when you left the states just throw them into the garbage or take them back the next year and reactivate them. Is this true or is this person just screwing me around. Thanks for any info on this. ( newley retired). Glennis.
