I know that Telus cell phones can be used on the ship I will be travelling on. Knowing that Koodo uses the same network, does that mean that I will be able to use my Koodo cell phone too?

You should be able to use it as long as there is a signal.

Make sure you have roaming enabled if this ship travels outside of Canada and that you are familiar with the roaming charges.

Hey Lisa, once you are outside of North America, your phone won't pick up a signal of another country(if you are close to one) unless you have International Voice Roaming add-on. This add-on allows the carrier of that country to be used with our phones.

Generally speaking, if you're out at sea you wouldn't be in range of any towers, so chances are you won't be able to get a signal. If you do get a signal, you will need the above add-on to be able to call and text :).

Thanks. I knew that I needed the International Voice Roaming add-on, and according to the information I found, Telus phones can pick up a signal while on the ship (Carnival) at sea, so I was just wondering if that also meant that Koodo phones would also be able to get a signal.
