I understand the costs for making a call or sending a text while in the USA. But I'm wondering about the cost if friends and family in Canada call us or send a text.
We have a Prepaid plan, and as near as I can tell, we cannot use the Koodo roaming add-ons.

The bad news is David: you can't use your prepaid plan at all in the USA or any other country, only in Canada.

The good news is that it won't cost you anything either that way :) You could unlock your phone ($35 if you ask Koodo to do so) if it is not unlocked yet, and buy a local SIM in the US :)
