A relative is now in Australia and is texting me, does this cost me to receive and return her texts? Also is there a way I can upgrade me plan to receive collect calls from her or for me to call her direct and if so how much is it? Thank you

If you are in Canada and are on one of the plans which includes text, it won't cost you anything to receive and send text from/to Australia (sorry! edited), Michael.

As far as I know there is no way to receive collect calls, but maybe (hopefully) someone can prove me wrong :)
To call her you need to add the $2 LD Saver add-on to your plan and you'll be able to call her for 5 cents per minute. See: http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-...

No, there is no charge for sending or receiving international text messages. In order to make international phone calls you must add the international dialing and long distance saver to your plan it will cost you $2 per month plus applicable long distance rates.
It is not possible to receive collect calls on koodo cellphones.
