Yep, and as original poster, I'll be trusting Piranha for trip to UK Wed (though also going to try out the TMob US global roaming network).
As I've posted before, Piranha has some issues texting and switching from US to UK primary numbers. But best rates out there.

More Aggressive data pricing, just received this message.

still some reliability issues, and texting doesn't work on UK number. Needs a cleaner way for user to decide which number is primary - I'm mostly using in Europe where people want to call and text to an EU number.

I just ordered another one. My husband is now using one as his "regular phone" (he only makes calls in semi emergencies anyway) and one for me when I'm travelling, also it will be useful on our Alaska cruise to check the occasional email when we're in ports. Hope they'll stay in business for a long, long time as I have abandoned the Truphone SIM by now....

How well does Piranha compare to Canadian prepaid options? Same rates from Canada to Canada and the United States.
Better expiration, I imagine.
Certainly beats AT&T and T-Mobile PAYGO rates. Callinng to the USA from Canada:: AT&T's rate of 39¢ per minute and T-Mobile's rate of $0.59 / min.

Prepaid rates in Canada are around $0.25/min and $10 per 100MB on most plans. But he is such a terribly light user, that this is overkill for him... Telus is the only provider to offer pay per use data at $2 per MB and local calls are $0.30, LD $0.70.

This means that Piranha is actually cheaper considering the nationwide fee and per MB usage... and yes the no top up requirement (Telus has $100 per year or $10 per month as an absolute minimum) made it an easy choice He can now check the very occasional email or make the odd call which is all he needs!

Does he have a Canadian number with Piranha or just does not need one?
Do you happen to know what Piranha charges for a Canadian number?
