I have Canada-wide calling but does that also mean I can only text people in Canada. I'm wondering if it would cost me if I texted someone in Florida and would it cost them to text me back?

Hi Nicole,

It would not cost you anything as all texting is international texting with Koodo, so as long as you are in Canada you would not be charged. Your friend on the other hand would have to verify with their provider.

Just about every US provider has free incoming texts, no matter what the origin, so your friend should be OK. And only a few charge forĀ  or restrict "foreign" outgoing.
