Hi Gladys

Depending non which plan you are on, you should be able to call anywhere in Canada as long as you yourself are located within Canada.

This is one of the great things that make koodo so awesome: all of their current tab plans include Canada wide calling!

If you're unsure which plan you're on, I would recommend calling into koodo and double checkong , but again, if you're on any recent plan, you're likely in good shape and ready to call Toronto while in Vancouver. Have a fun trip!

You can check your Self Serve account and go to Plan to see if you have Canada-wide minutes included in your plan. All the recent plans and the plans before that did have Canada-wide but you may want to double check.

You shouldn't be charged anything extra (not including overage fees for texting/minutes if you don't have unlimited texting/minutes/long distance) While in Vancouver if you are not on a Canada wide plan any calls you make to Toronto would be charged as Long Distance at the LDM rate. Placing calls to any place local to where you are in Vancouver should still be fine.

Texting is always Canada wide
