If I get an android, do I have to get a data with it in order to use the apps? I am aware that the apps can be used through WiFi, but say my WiFi wasn't connected because I was on the bus and I decided to use the Facebook app, would I see additional charges on my bill?

Facebook & other apps use data so if your not connected to wifi then it will use your koodo data connection. If your plan doesn't include data then you would pay per mb on top of your plan cost. If you have a plan with a certain amount of data included then it will count towards that amount of data. If you go over that amount of data then it will be charged accordingly depending on which type of plan you have.

All of koodo's current plans, though, do include at least the pay per use data saver plan, which is a flex rate plan that charges nothing if no data is used, but kicks in automatically if it is.

That's definitely the best way to go for new smartphone users who don't know how much data they will use, at least till they figure out their average use.

Welcome to the smartphone club.

I must point out that what you're asking about applies not only to Android devices, but all mobile phones.
