Okay, this "international" texting has me confused.
Koodo website says:
All base plans include:
•Voicemail(5)
•Call Display
•Call Waiting
•Conference Calling
•International text messages sent and received anywhere in Canada(2)

From dictionary dot com:
in·ter·na·tion·al
[in-ter-nash-uh-nl]
adjective
1. between or among nations; involving two or more nations: international trade.
2. of or pertaining to two or more nations or their citizens: a matter of international concern.
3. pertaining to the relations between nations: international law.
4. having members or activities in several nations: an international organization.
5. transcending national boundaries or viewpoints: an international benefit; an international reputation.

So, it sounds to me, by reading on Koodos website, that I can send and receive texts to and from the U.S., as long as I am in Canada.
I know that's wrong, but, that is what it is worded as, to me.

As long as your phone is in Canada, you can send texts to anywhere around the world. If your phone is in Canada, you can receive texts from anywhere around the world. No additional costs.

Haha it's true: international texting means: international, as in, every country in the world (though Koodo does not guarantee that all providers in the world are able to receive them) :)

Why do people always assume things mean something other than they appear to?

I always assume things mean some thing different than they appear, because, usually they are.

Okay, that may explain it. I just canceled from another provider :-)
