Most Affordable Temporary Cell Phones (Vancouver)

Anyone know what the most affordable option is for getting a temporary cell phone in Vancouver?

I want to pick up one for the convenience of making/changing plans during an upcoming visit.

Obviously not a montly plan, just a prepaid plan but I'd need the cell phone too, and who offers it locally?

If it could roam in the US that'd be a bonus but not a primary criteria.

Thx a mint for any insights.

Enjoy-la!

Hi I think the cheapest choice is either though 7-11 and their speakoutwireless deal or Buy a phone on sale at London drugs and purchase prepaid minutes for it, also called pay as you go. You could also check with fido as I know they had a good deal when my kids were younger. Just to note, Canadians pay the most in the world for cell phone service. We are being totally ripped off
