Hey so I recently ventured closer to the USA border for the day and once I got back in my car I noticed I had an email from Koodo about a roaming alert. The email essentially says that my phone connected to a US network and goes on to tell me the charges for EasyRoam and other add ons. I don’t want to get charged for this as I never left Canada so does anyone have any experience with this situation or advice?

You can set your network settings to manual and select Koodo to force it to only connect to Koodo.

A Rep has stated on here prior any calls made in such a scenario would not be charged but if you do end up getting charged, you would need to speak with a Rep

You should disable Roaming, in addition to disabling ‘Automatic selection of network’ (and manually selecting  the koodo network) to prevent future occurrences.
