apparently 10all is no longer available. I have a low data rate plan because I primarily rely on wifi. I use more data when I travel to the US. As I see it, EasyRoam is going to cost me $56, plus $20 in overages for my 8 day trip, when 10all would have cost me $40 and included the 250MB top-up, therefore "easy roam" will cost me an extra $36.   Are there other options I've overlooked? 

(3 months left in my tab, and one month until the Dec1-free unlocking -- I've generally been happy with Koodo, but ready to consider walking over the new "easy" roaming)

Every other carrier except Freedom has it as their main option. Some carriers do have packages as well for the US.

You can always use Roam Mobility or T-Mobile's tourist sim plan as alternate options as well if easy Roam doesn't work for you. They end up being much cheaper than 7 plus tax per day.

TMobile Tourist plan looks very interesting. Unfortunately my phone is (currently) locked and my trip is before Dec 1. I won't pay $50 to have it unlocked earlier. It looks like I'll be eating the "easy roam" charges this trip, and shopping the Xmas plan offerings.

Do you have an old phone lying around or someone else you can borrow something from?

I agree.  Easy Roam unfairly penalizes customers with smaller plans who want to roam.  The Roaming rate should not be the same if your plan is much smaller.

Or maybe try your luck and they will unlock it free of charge? Since we're so close.

Yea, this is nonsense, I travel for business and 10ALL was a decent addon which I could easily expense, now I need to pay 30$ more for 10days AND I need to use my own data...

I used to be a big supporter of Koodo, but this kind of regression really drives me nuts.

It works better if you were a decent user of your own data back in canada

@Brentsmithis:
How much data do you have with your plan?
Although easyroam seems to be a more expensive  route, but it was charged per 24hours of usage. Are you a heavy user or casual one? If you could somehow manage your usage properly, it could get cheaper.

Get a company phone, and expense the whole thing!
