Did you activate pay per use international long distance and international voice roaming in your self-serve? They are in ad-ons and are zero dollars. They enable roaming.

How long have you been with Koodo? Did you port your number from another carrier before right before you left?

Have you tried restarting you device?

Scroll to settings..
About and make sure you have the correct number provisioned.

Try this.  Turn your phone on airplane mode then turn airplane mode off.  See if that works

Buying any of the Travel Add-ons only nets you a savings on your roaming fees, it does not change anything about the ability of the phone to roam. Without the Voice / Text / Data Add-on, you can still roam at pay-per-use prices. If Cameron Jones' suggestion does not work, let the community know, and we'll review other options with you.
I don't need roaming I need texting only and I was told in December that  I would not need roaming..  I am paying 20 dollars a month for unlimited texting US to Canada  and it still is not working.

It's true you don't need a roaming package to text from the USA because Koodo charges you 5$ per 100 outgoing texts.

What plan are you on and what add ons do you have?
