When I use my iphone in the USA for the $7/day roam do I have to switch the cellular setting in my Iphone under cellular data options to "roaming on"?  I recently used my phone in the usa for texting with the $7/day plan but was uncertain as to what implicationschanging my cellular data setting to roaming while in the USA would do in terms of charges.  Somewhere I read that Koodo says use your phone just like in Canada when roaming however I do not have my cellular data option for roaming turned on when I am in Canada.  I am confused can someone enlighten me? thanks

If you want to use data then roaming data should be on but if you want to use just talk and text then there's no need to turn it on.
