I will be traveling from the US to Canada.  Can I use my cell phone in Canada without incurring additional charges?

There will be additional charges no matter what. Depending on your plan, the charges can vary. You may want to look into something called TravelPass. This will have a daily charge but allows you to use your phone's plan as if you were domestic, under your existing allowances.

Traveling abroad? Connecting internationally just got simpler

IF you are in the NEW My Verizon plan and have XL (16 GB) or higher, then Canada roaming is included for no additional charges.

Thank you, Weth.  I have the "Verizon Plan Large 6 GB", so I guess there will be additional charges if/when I go to Canada.  Smiley Sad  I would like to have a sense for what those charges would/be.  For example, if I leave my phone on but nobody calls, will I be charged for roaming?  If someone calls and I talk for 1 minute, how much would it cost?  I'll give Verizon a shout tomorrow.  Thank you.

Thank you smith6612!  The TravelPass is an excellent idea.  I'd like to know how the cost of the travel pass compares to the charges I would incur by turning my phone on and potentially using it in Canada.  I'll call Verizon tomorrow for specifics.  Thanks again.
