Does Tracfone work in Canada? At least short term?

    I know the official word from Tracfone is that their phones don't work in Canada.

    However, since Tracfone purchases services from other cellular providers (T-Moble, AT&T... etc) and re-sell them as prepaid services under the Tracfone brand, their phones are actually activated on their parent providers networks. And as far as I know, AT&T and T-Moble work in Canada with their roaming agreements with Roger or other Canadian providers.

    I know that Tracfone worked in Canada in the past... until Tracfone gets bills from AT&T and T-Moble and find out the phone was used in Canada, and then they shut off the offending phone. I am wondering if this is still the case and if anyone has recent experiences? Specifically in Toronto?

    Thanks
