I live close to the USA. I keep getting easy roam messages that I may be charged. How do I prevent this?

In your phone settings change network selection from automatic to manual. Then select Koodo. That way you will only connect to the Koodo network and wont get the roaming messages. If you ever do want to roam you will have to set it back to automatic.

Try manual network selection mode and select Koodo. That forces your phone to stay on Koodo and that should stop it. Let us know if it doesn't.

You may also find that you can get Koodo service a little further into the US border area without roaming charges. Your phone will lock on to the Koodo tower and ignore the stronger US ones until the signal peters out completely.
