I'm going to England next month. I want to be able to txt from England to family in Canada and also family in England. So, regardless of cost, is this possible with Koodo Prepaid plan? I see US txt booster but it is not clear if it works internationally. Otherwise, why would they just not call it International Txt.

Because it is specifically for use while in the US. Koodo differentiates international roaming into 2 zones: US; and out of US. You can still text any number.

Hi, thx for the reply but I'm not sure that specifically answers my question. Will US txt booster work while I am in England to send txts from England to Canada and from England to England? If not, is there a booster that will? If so, which one. thx.

No. I might not have explained well. There's bascially two primary zones. For postpaid, it's just different rates whether you're roaming in the US or outside of US. As for prepaid, which is your situation, it's only usable while you are in the US. The texts will work internationally while you are in the US and only in the US. Koodo prepaid will not work outside of Canada and the US. Hence it being US roaming packages.

Unlocking is free, so you got nothing to lose! Plans are way cheaper in EU
