My current plan is 3GB data with unlimited nation wide minutes and texting.

I will be traveling to southern California for 7 days next month. I see that it will cost $7 for USA roaming per day for me to use my plan there.
-If I make a local call from California to another California resident, would I be charged for long distance or would it count as my local unlimited minutes?
-What if I make a text from California to someone in Canada, would there be a long distance charge?
-Is it basically be my usual monthly plan cost plus $49 ($7 times 7 days) ?
-Has anybody occurred any hidden fees?

Hi Jacob,
For all of the cases you mentioned, you won't be charged extra it would be $7/day. That include your calls to Canada and US numbers. Texting is international as usual.

You could see the detail easyroam here: https://www.koodomobile.com/easyroam
  • The daily Easy Roam fee is valid for 24 hours, and applies when you make or pick up a call and send a text or use data abroad.
  • Phone calls to numbers in Canada and the U.S. are included.
  • If your plan includes Shock-Free® data, you'll continue to receive data notifications while travelling and have the option to top-up at the domestic rate.

There are no hidden fees with using easy Roam either.

My wife and I used it in Cuba a couple weeks ago, we didn't make any local Cuba calls, but her and I called each other a couple times, and used our data.  Because it was Cuba it was $10/day not $7.  We did not incur any additional charges

Update: I was charged $7 per day while I was in the USA. I used my plan like how I would normally at home. I made calls and texts back to Canada from the USA and calls+texts to other USA numbers with no extra charge. Koodo's roaming rate for the USA is awesome.

Just make sure you are subscribed for roaming on your plan before you leave. When you land in the USA, a text message will be sent to you to confirm that you are roaming.
