Hi! I am looking for a new provider and am wondering if Koodo's international text & picture messaging includes messages sent and received to the US? I send quite a bit of texts to the states and want to know if this is included. Or if it's just texting to Canadian numbers. Thanks.

Koodo's international texting is worldwide. You will be able to send and receieve messages to the States no problem.

Heres the best way I can explain it.

Koodos texting is free internationally, as long as you are in your local coverage zone. This also applies to incoming calls (as long as the call is made & completed within the local zone). For most Koodo plans, the local zone is considered anywhere in Canada. Any sent or recieved texts in Canada will not charge your account.

Roaming is about the only way to incur charges via koodo's current plans with text messages.
Happy texting!

And since you are looking for a new plan it would be helpful to know that all of our plans currently include unlimited text and picture messaging internationally.

Your data would have to be on and available (ie. no data block, and working) in order to get MMS.
