Is it Possible to Buy Data Boosters on a Prepaid Phone?


I have an iPhone 4S, I have a monthly plan of $15 for Unlimited Canada- US Wide Texting, I also occasionally add on a $10 Talk Booster, is it possible, to add a Data Booster, using a bought prepaid card, or, simpler, can I go to a store, buy a $10 koodo card, and put it on my phone, to buy a certain ammount of Data. Please respond quickly, as I'm leaving the place I'm at with internet, and I won't be able to check again after tomorrow

Yes, just add the funds and then add the data Booster.

I suggest if possible to buy the biggest booster packs. They don't expire so if you don use a lot it won go away. You said that you occasionally add a 10 dollar talk booster. That's 10 cents a minute whereas the 25 dollar one costs 5 cents a minute.

Prepaid International data boosters work only in the USA. Your regular data booster works only in Canada.

You can't roam outside the USA on prepaid. No voice/text/data available on prepaid in Mexico... only available on post-paid accounts.

If you will be there for a while, consider unlocking and check this out:
