Can we text back and forth if we take our phones to the United States?

Sure, but you will be paying for roaming charges. Here are the details: http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-long-distance-and-travelling/travelling

you can text to other countries from within canada, as that is koodos service territory, anything you do outside of canada will be extra charges as you are no longer using koodo but another company such as AT&T
Thank you. I appreciate your help. Not the answer I was hoping for, but.... 🙂

If you're on postpaid, you can also add roaming passes that enable you to call or text at discounted rates so if you intend to use it somewhat frequently down there you can add those. Check them out here: http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-long-distance-and-travelling/travelling If you're on prepaid, then unfortunately there's no roaming possible and below is your only option. Or, you can get your phones unlocked (if they aren't already) and then get prepaid US SIMs from T Mobile, AT&T, or their flanker brands that will likely give better value at the expense of having to swap out a SIM and take a different phone #. It's up to you.
