so i was recently charged heavy by koodo for long distance call, anyways i saw they are offering the $3 long distance call saver addon thing, is it just $3 a month extra to make calls interationally? i need to call my gf in the states sometimes. and is that thier only long distance plan?

Hi Jdm,
There are 2 types of add-on https://www.koodomobile.com/add-ons

The $3 is a "long distance saver"  can give you better rates compared to the normal rate. For calling US, with that add-on you would have to pay $0.05/min (vs normal $0.5/min)

There is another $10 add-on "1000minutes US long distance". That one is like a bucket of 1000 minutes to US for you to use.

Depending on your need, you could pick either of those.

hmm that $3 isnt a bad deal but i dont call her often to be using that, even then when we do talk its like 2-3 hours, sometimes 4 lol. but i mean for $3 and 0.05/min isnt too bad. okay i will have to see and decide, thanks

You could always use a calling card or talk via voip means such as whatsapp or skype or Fongo etc.

its cause she doesnt have much data and her wifi isnt that great thats why we dont use those apps, and theyre all glitchy and arent too clear for us like the calls drop and gets interrupted. I just want to be able to call directly from my phone, cause shes able to call me for without being charged, i she has unlimited calls to canada in her plan. i was thinking of looking for an app that allows me to call her with my number without me being charged or even charged a little and without her having that app

If she calls you then you dont get charged any long distance.  Why dont you text her to call you instead of you calling her?
