I have just joined Koodo and have the US calling add-on. My usage to date shows 22 minutes for a call to US 503 area code as counting against my 100 Canadian base plan minutes. Why?

Because calling will use your local minutes. The only thing is that you won't be paying roaming charges.

Slight correction.

It not roaming charges but international long distance charges you're not paying.

The add on converts your base minutes into international long distance minutes.
