What are the short-term and long term wireless roaming options for travel into the US?

When I travel to the US for a 2-week trip what options do I have for data and/or voice coverage when travelling so I can avoid a large roaming bill?

My parents snowbird in the US during the winter for 5-6 months at a time. What options would they have aside from getting a US-based carrier phone?

Hi Tom! 

When you travel to the US for a 2 week period you would have the option to add voice and/or data packs. These packs must be kept for a minimum of one billing cycle (one month). 
The add ons are outlined here: 

For your Snowbird parents I would suggest one of the Freedom North America calling plans:

The Freedom North America plans must be kept for a minimum of two months at a time. 

Thanks for the questions. :)
