Do I need to turn on data roaming in the US?


I bought text and voice boosters for the US, do I need to turn on data roaming? I don't have it turned on right now and it tells me that no network is available.

I assume that you are prepaid? For the US you do not need to put in the free roaming add-ons in self-serve. You'll need to turn on data roaming on your phone to use data in the states. So you cannot connect to any network? Do you have your phone set to manually connect to Koodo or to just connect to any network?

Just to clarify: if you do not wish to use data in the US, there is no need to enable data roaming. Voice and text should work just fine with it switched off.

Thanks got it figured out after I posted , the network was set to automatic once I turned that off then the networks came up and I picked AT&T and it's working

Just remember to switch it back once you get to Canada so you can connect to Koodo!
