I received a text from Koodo, welcoming me to the USA. I am not in the USA, but live in Welland, ON. Please advise?

Your phone simply connected to a tower of a US carrier for a short time. Radio waves do not respect international boundaries.
If you do not want this to happen in the future, you can change the carrier settings in your phone from Automatic, to Koodo.

Changing your provider to Koodo will also prevent accidental bogus roaming charges if your handset temporarily falls under the influence of a stronger US tower.
