You need to go into self-serve and enable international pay-per-use long distance, informational voice roaming and international data roaming. They are no cost add-ons. Restart your phone. If that doesn't work reseat your Sim card and Restart again. Make sure you have roaming enabled on your phone and have automatic network selection in settings.

If you need more than the minimum the add-on offers then you can leave it and am for a refund if you don't use it at all and check out s local prepaid Sim forservice : http://prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia.co...

It's more expensive than most European countries but still much cheaper than Koodo roaming options. You'll just need an unlocked phone.

I have many times and when I am out and need to use the internet it does not work. I am frustrated because I was told that this was my best choice

I understand. I saw some very low data usage a few min ago, so I think it should be working now.

I pUrchased the roaming bundle for $40 and was told it should just work. I need a definite answer because I am traveling and need access. I can only use free wifi and this is not always available

Technically it's your only choice for data with Koodo. If it just won't work then I suggest grabbing a local prepaid Sim so you can have all the data you need for 10-30 bucks depending on how much you need as 50MB is effectively nothing in 2017. You can even use VoIP apps to call back in Canada as needed.

This service sucks I got it going and every time I try to use it it adds $25.00 to my bill so far it has added $75.00 and I have not been able to use what I paid for. Who do I complain to regarding this misrepresentation of the plan?
