While travelling Outside Canada and the U.S. Is there a way to check voice messages online? AS I will not be using my Koodo number whilst abroad.

I don't think so, but what you can do is call into your voicemail while abroad.
I'd recommend using Google Voice to call as it doesn't charge long distance to Canada (only uses Data but can be done over Wi-Fi),

Sweet, thanks for the reply. Any idea what number to call using Google voice?

You'll need to setup a Google Voice account Google.com/Voice & then when abroad call into your normal Canadian #.
Not sure if every country is supported but I've used it to call North America from Europe & Asia.

If Koodo could implement “Visual Voice Mail” (VVM) that will let you view, listen, and manage your voice mail messages on your smartphone using an email-like interface it’ll be greate without a need to call your number. I’m not sure if it will work outside Canada or not?

VVM currently isn't available so currently isn't an option.
Thanks though, Badger.

As an alternative you can log into your Gmail mail account and make your call on any pc with a microphone. No Google voice account required.
