Concerning the BUNDLE30 deal- In the info sheet, Koodo says it will automatically purchase another $15 for whatever type of usage exceeds the initial bundle (ex: another $15 will be charged if/when you exceed the initial 40MB data). However(!), it should be understood that you will NOT see a service text message to let you know when that happens, which essentially means, you will not have any idea as to what your usage is. I assumed that I would know when an additional add-on would be charged to my account- that way I would have some idea of my usage. The service I just spoke with on the phone said that it can take up to 3 months(!) for Koodo to know your usage for roaming in the US- is this really true? And yet the usage was clearly in time for my bill? Hmmm, interesting...I feel like this would be a grand service improvement. Is it not possible to send a service text message to alert the customer when an additional roaming add-on is being charged? And if it's really not possible to have accurate real-time or near real-time usage updates, this is should be a disclaimer for the BUNDLE30 deal or any other roaming add-on so that customers, like myself, aren't greatly surprised and dismayed to see additional charges, fair as they are, on the account bill.

Hey Kolavak,

On the Add-On page, it's now clear that customers won't be a text message when a new bucket is added.

Thanks for the idea! CEO badge on the way :)
