I added "30TNT" by texting 4545 while I was still in Canada and it has worked great.   But, I am still in the USA (Virginia) at day 29, so I want to extend for another 30 days.  I texted "30TNT" but the response from Koodo was "not activated as it is already active....You can try activating once the current one expires".  The problem is once the current add on expires I will not be able to text "30TNT".  How do I solve this probelm?

Hello Joseph,

Why won't you be able to text the number?

Because I am in the USA, and my plan to allow texting while in the USA will have expired????  Am I missing something?

The roaming add-on just allows you to text, call, etc. at cheaper rates.

Well, usually when I go to the Sand don'T buy an add-on I can still text. It's just more expensive, but your phone will keep working!

I believe texting the short code is a free text but if it does charge you, you can contact Koodo and see if they can remove the charge for you.

And if it doesn't work, I'd contact Koodo via FB or Twitter for them to add it for you.

The reason to order "30TNT" and spend $45 for 30 days of unlimited texting is so that I do not have to spend even more money for sending a single text.  That is why I want to renew my "30TNT" today, before my current "30TNT" expires (at midnight).  But Koodo is refusing my request, and telling me I have to wait until my plan expires.  If I understand your chart above, it looks like Koodo will charge me an extra $5 to send the text asking Koodo to charge me $45.  Is this correct?  Is Koodo going to charge me an extra $5 when I am texting Koodo?
