This works just fine for me ... always good signal strength ... $23 less than what my landline used to cost.
I subscribe to an Internet Access plan from another carrier (for my usage, Koodo's services would cost me $25/month more than this other plan) ... 99% of the time, I access the Internet from my Computer and Tablet.
Very occasionally, I would like to access the internet from my phone ... but not through Koodo's Data Services ... instead, I would like to connect via the Hot Spot device of the Internet Service Provider ... unfortunately, as soon as I change Wi-Fi to 'ON' on my phone (Samsung Ace IIx), and before I can choose my connection, Google Play (and perhaps some other services) start to use the Data Connection provided by Koodo ... and these few seconds of activity add $5/month to my Bill (as per the Pay Per Use Data Saver feature that comes with the plan I subscribe to.
Question 1 ... how can I make sure that I do NOT connect to the Internet from my phone via Koodo's Data Service ?
It has been suggested that I uncheck the Data Enable option on my phone ... but that would also prevent me from connecting to another service as well.
I was told by a Koodo Service representative that I could subscribe to a "Data Saver Light Weight" option ... but I can not find it anywhere on the Koodo website.
Question 2 ... assuming that Question 1 is not possible, can I purchase a Data Booster option with my current plan ? ... or is this only available to subscribers of the 'Pre-Paid Plans' ?
The booster option has the the advantage of not expiring ... which would then end up costing me far less in the long run than the current $5/month charge (for the few seconds of usage).
