Purchased this Add-On and the Data doesn't seem to work. Although i am able to make phone calls and send text, but it just won't connect to 3G.

Thanks

Thanks, but I did and it still doesn't work. "Could not activate cellular data network : You are not subscribed to a cellular data service "

Where are you?
Koodo has roaming agreements with most but not all us carriers, in the west desert areas there are smaller regional carriers that may not provide data for roamers

Try searching for networks and choosing t-mobile or at&t

I texted the 3all text to 4545 last night. Got a text confirmation and an email one that the addon is active. As soon as I crossed into the USA I received those standard texts telling me I'm in the USA, that incoming text is free and that I have no addons.

I'm in new York now and can't call koodo support before 9am. I have no text, no data, no minutes. Hanging at the Starbucks. Am I gonna be charged the 30 dollars for nothing?

Yes that's correct
I meant they don't alter the way your phone functions.

And make sure you set this back to automatic when you return to Canada or you won't have service.

Have a similar problem. Texted 10ALL10 days Us roaming add on for voice/text an data) to 4545 on May 1 evening and got a confirmation test. When I landed in the us also got a welcome to US text and that rates are as per my 20 day add on. My iPhone 5 automatically connects to AT&T but I cannot make or receive calls, send texts ( am able to receive texts) or get any data at all. Voice calls to my number are going to voice mail with no notification to me that I have voice mail. Tried manually scanning fur networks and switched to T- mobile but phone don't connect and just reverts back to AT&T and auto network selection. Please help

So the USA is a bit different. Your phone should just work assuming your bill is paid up. Even without any add ons.

The welcome to the USA messages happen even if you have a roaming package.

Have you tried restarting your phone?

Oh and where are you?
