Data roaming rates

We recently changed the way our data roaming system works. You'll never get charged pay-per-use rates for data while roaming outside of Canada, even if your data roaming is turned on. To use data while roaming, simply purchase one of our Data Passes directly from your device (ensure Wi-Fi is off and data roaming is turned on).

You will be unable to use data unless you have purchased a Data Pass or are using an available Wi-Fi connection. If you do not want to use data, you can choose not to purchase a Data Pass and your data roaming services will be automatically suspended.

Text messaging rates

No matter which phone you have, receiving a text message is free, whether you are in Manitoba or roaming. The pay-per use cost to send a text message while roaming is $0.85/message (up to a max $85/month). Prices are in Canadian dollars.

Unlock your device

If you are travelling outside of North America (Canada, U.S., and Mexico) and want to take advantage of the local networks in that country, we will unlock your device free of charge. Providing you've had Bell MTS wireless service for 90 days and your account is in good standing.
