Unlimited Data Plan= Free Data Roaming In Canada?

I am going to Canada next month and was looking for info on the data rates there should I want to use my Compass. This is what I found on the Sprint site:

The North American Unlimited Connection Card Plan allows you unlimited usage in the US, Canada, and Mexico. You can stay connected while visiting our neighbors to the north or south of the border. You will have access to your email, internet, and the ability to view company applications on your laptop with a PCS High Speed Data Connection Card or via a data roaming-capable PCS device.

Does this mean if you have an Unlimited Data plan or Unlimited PowerVision plan you don't have to worry about extra charges when using data in Canada or Mexico? Sounds too good to be true.....

Here is the page I found it on.

From the way it reads to me, you have to have a data card and this special plan to include all of this. It is NOT for regular vision or p.vision phones.

Again, this is from how i interpreted the paragraph

Add TEP and monthly bill + taxes = $41.99

I do have a data card (usb modem actually, see sig) and the Unlimited plan. I guess I'll have to email Ecare and see if they can clarify.

It is a special plan that you have to be on. The normal unlimited data card and powervision plans will be charged for data roaming when in Canada or Mexico.

It's not suppose to be that way but I have heard of some people not getting charged when they are in Canada. I have even heard of some people not getting charged for calls made in Canada. I wouldn't say anything about it. I'm not sure how much the official plan is for North America Unlimited data or if it is available to consumers or for business only. I remember hearing about it a long time ago and I don't remember it being much more then. Best way would be to call CS and ask them about it. I would try to get data support as they would be the best to talk to about it.

What I know is when you are in the US and are roaming.. IF you have unlimited america roaming, your data also is not charged any roaming data. Similar way, if you take an unlimited Canada Roaming (I dont know now, but they had one a couple yrs ago) you should not be charged anything extra for roaming or voicecalls as you already hv the unlimited canada roaming option. (was $20 2 yrs ago)

I have the Canada Roaming plan but I don't think it includes data.
