The international roaming charges have been crazy, for both countries. About 3 years back a friend traveled to the Reno Air Show from BC. Had his cell phone turned on but never made a call , for 6 days in the USA got a bill for over $800. about $2.40 for every cell tower he passed.
I hear it's not as bad now , friends from CA were here visiting, for 3 weeks , and added 400, international minutes to their regular Verizon package for $20. but I didn't ask how much their regular package was.
I carry both , Canadian & US cell phones , switch over when crossing the border.
