    I went around to all the large phone carriers trying to get a prepaid sim card but all of them require a monthly payment.

    Where do you guys buy sim cards that you can top off like $10, and use forever to PVA your account. Does this even exist?

    Thank you!

    For those simcards, it lasts forever until the amount on the card is 0$ right? I dont have to top off every month?

    Not sure why, but i live in Canada and all phone companies need you to top off your prepaid sim card every month.. you cant just pay 1 time and use until the data or w.e is finished

    I was just searching my self a few days ago about this, although I'm in the US. I just ordered 3 4G LTE Dual SIM Card for $2.97 and a 3G phone Moto E for $9 from Page Plus Cellular www.pagepluscellular.com. However they haven't come yet, so I can't really say if it's good or not.

    I plan to get the $10 pay as you go Standard plan(which is 3G phones only), but the $10 will only last for 120 days, so even if you don't use all $10 you still need to fill up after 120 days. Still only paying $10 every 120 days for each sim as long as you don't use more then the $10 isn't bad and I couldn't really find anything better for here in the US.

    However like I said this is for the US, but I see they do allow roaming in Canada. A normal text sent or received takes out $0.05 and for roaming it is $0.50. But if you live close to the border maybe you can still get normal rates.

    Again I haven't gotten to actually test it out my self yet, not 100% certain how it works in Canada and maybe there is better pay as you go plans in Canada, but still an option to check out.

    NO sim card lasts forever unless you use it at least once in a specific period of time. The terms & conditions vary from 1 carrier to another, however in general for pre-paid cards, in order to keep your card active, you need to at least top up the card (minimum top up amount allowed by the carrier is fine but it's usually no less than 5 $/€/£), make a call or send a message (any of these 3 chargeable actions) once per 180 days (6 months) with some carriers extending it to as much as 270 days. So, no carrier requires that you top up every month. Some special pre-paid cards can last for 1 year tops, however they are non-reusable anymore after 1 year (they are one-time use only), most of the times they are for data/internet use only (however you CAN receive verification messages from FB/IG etc... to verify your accounts) and most importantly cost too damn much (like $30-50 per card) which make them useless for verifying accounts.

    All of the above holds true for European countries only as I have done a lot of research on this topic, because I own more than 500+ sim cards to verify my FB accounts and I live in Europe. For US/CA/AU though, I have no idea. If I were you, I would research if you can use European sim cards in Canada and if you can, buy them for cheap on Ebay. Local shops and Ebay have been my 2 sources for a long time with Ebay being my primary source only very recently.

    However, please keep in mind that you will need to change cards and re-verify accounts every 6 months though, unfortunately there is no way around it. I started using UK cards recently and I am slowly replacing all my old local shop cards (thank god because I was going to 3 different shops every 6 months to buy tons of cards at once) and the minimum top up amount imposed by the UK carriers is too much (£5) to renew the cards every 6 months, when a card costs as little as £0.5 in bulk on Ebay.

    They are not cheaper. The cost per account I had with local sim cards was $3/year before and now with UK cards, I estimate it to be £1/year per account, which is roughly $1.37 (gotta love the exchange rate after Brexit). If you can find me a virtual number service(s) with lower costs than these, I will move everything I have there and buy from your affiliate link in a snap.
