International travel


I receive daily telemarketing calls - will I be charged for them while travelling in Europe? I'm assuming there is no charge for calls I don't answer? Also, are there any alternatives to the pay per use fees while travelling in Europe - is there an add-on for Europe like there is for the US?

No charge if you don't answer. Unfortunately there are no European roaming add-ons. The popular recommendation is to unlock your phone and to get a local prepaid sim. I use this site to help when traveling http://prepaidwithdata.wikia.com/wiki/Prepaid_SIM_with_data

Koodo offers roaming add-ons for outside of north america. https://www.koodomobile.com/add-ons If you get a prepaid sim from somewhere else, yes you will need to unlock your phone to use it. Getting an add-on from koodo, no it doesnt need to be unlocked.
Thank you - could you help me out with one more question? If I use the International pay per use ... I just want to be certain: Am I strictly paying for use or are there other charges associated with it? FYI: I have an iPhone Thanks again

Yes just based on what your phone uses. WIth that being said, data can be tricky as they can use data in the background without you knowing it
Ah - but if I keep my data off, would that protect me?

Yes. Make sure you turn data off when you leave the country.
Much appreciated - thanks
