Hello, I'm a newcomer in Canada and I got a plan last week. The seller explained me they had a promotion for newcomers, so I have 30 minutes for international calls free of charge per month. My question is: Can I use these 30 minutes to call to Cuba for free, even before the first bill ? Or should I divided 30 minutes between the days remaining for the billing date ?? Thanks a lot.

You have 30 minutes per bill cycle of 30 days, so if you want you can use the full 30min in one day! Its entirely up to you :) 
Thank you. Yes, I know I can use the 30 min in a day, but my doubt is about the first time. I have the sim card since the last week and my billing date is in the next week. So I can use these 30 min before my first payment ?? The seller told me I have to wait until the next month to use these minutes.

Hi there Addiel...

To play safe, I would divide those 30 mins until the new billing cycle starts, then you know for sure it is 30 minutes for the full cycle...

Welcome to Canada!!!!

Oh yes you would have to wait until your first bill cycle starts, check on your contract, it will tell you what your billing date is.

I was given the 30 mins free international call from Koodo but my issue is how do I keep track of using the 30 mins? Is there an app or somewhere in my self-service that I can track how many of the 30 mins I have used?
