Here's my situation. I live in a city away from my dad, he had heart surgery on Monday and when he's out of the hospital, I'll have to stay with him for a minimum of 2 weeks to take care of him. He doesn't have Internet and there's no open Internet connections around his place :( so I'm going to go over my data by a lot most likely. I have Internet at home and I usually go over every month as it is!

I've been trying to change my current plan, I'm paying more now for my plan then new ones offered. I pay 75 to 85$ a month for the same things I can get for the 65$ plan(I got this plan like 5 years ago or something ) But I can't change it until I pay off my tab, which I can't do right now. I only get something like a Gig of data a month currently :(

My question is, if I call up koodo, can I get them to give me an extra 3G of data or something for next month, and then go back to my normal bill the month after? I know I'll have to pay fornthe extra data., but right now I'm charged 10$ every certain amount I go over, it would be cheaper if I just pay for some beforehand

No the only way is to do what your doing or pay off your tab and switch plans, there are no data add on's you just pay for what you use over and that's the only way to do it other than change plans.

You may want to hold off on changing your plan. If your overage rate is 10$ per gb then hang onto that plan.

Newer plans may charge as upward of 20$ per gb. You may be better off to just pay the overage.

You can check your overage rate In self serve under plan details.

Make sure you compare that with newer plans before you decide to change.
