Windsor ~ US cellphone coverage

Can anyone help? I have nationwide long-distance with AT&T....will I be charged international rates just over the border into Windsor?

I have a pre-paid phone to use in Europe. Should I try to use that? I will be leaving for Milwaukee friday morning, taking the ferry over to Michigan, & driving on to Detroit & Windsor. THANKS!!

I can confirm the post by Scott60600; I am on Bell Mobility and have to keep my phone on 'home' or it will roam to a US network all along the river, and inland as well. Seems to be more of a problem (or solution for SS2teach!!)on weekends.

Maybe it's a Bell thing. I have Rogers and it stays on Rogers even along the river. I have a friend (yes I do) that has Bell and has had problems picking up the "US" carrier that he should be switching to when in the States. Mine automatically picks up AT&T and I get a text message welcoming me to the US when I get to the other side of the bridge. Strange indeed.

Just got back from WIndsor this weekend. My phone stayed on AT&T 3G US network even though I was in Windsor.

It switched to Rogers's AT&T Canada when I went South or West of Erie St. So, all along the lakefront (and in the casino) and in and around Oulette downtown it stayed on the US network.

Yes, the AT&T signal is alive and well in Windsor all along the river and for a few blocks inland.
