Yep, unlimited international texts (as long as you send them while you are in Canada)
For the list of countries and carriers Koodo has partnerships with, see:

yep. Just type +63 for the country code and it should work. I don't use the +011. You don't generally need it.

Can you elaborate on the charge please? What does it say on your bill for the 7.50 charge? While text messages anywhere to the world are free, some premium text services and such are not as well. Can you doublecheck that the number you used is correct and that the format was done properly as well? Make sure that you do not use the "0" prefix before the area/provider code like if you were in the Phillipines. The number the person gave you might not have left that out.

Hey Grace! The charge was not for SMS messages, as International SMS is included at no extra cost. We suggest taking a look at your usage details through your self-serve http://koo.do/1TlXgoX account to better understand what you were charged for.
