You don't have to do anything special to make your phone work in the USA. However, you can't use your actual plan there as you would in Canada. Once in the US, you are on PPU (pay per use). $1.50/minute, $0.60 per text sent AND receive and I believe it was $3/MB for data. Koodo does have some USA roaming packages (here: https://shop.koodomobile.com/plans/ad...) but that's the best you can get from Koodo.

Most of us suggest to unlock your phone and get a prepaid SIM card with a US carrier. It would be much cheaper. If not, just follow what Ahmad said.

Change provider from koodo to wind and you are all set. for $39 unlimited Canada and USA. Do not pay 1.50/minute or 0.60 tex to koodo. That is ridiculous.

Except that Canada is unlimited only when you are in a 'wind zone'.
