"Go to the Plans and Add-ons page and select Add-ons. If you do not already have Pay Per Use Intl Long Distance add-on ($0/month) in your included services or optional add-ons, add this. In addition, you will need to add International Voice Roaming ($0/month) in order to call and text, while travelling outside of Canada and the U.S."

This is directly from the koodo FAQ

For your next trip, you should consider unlocking your iphone and getting a prepaid sim from the place you travel to. It's usually quite a lot more cost effective than roaming. :)

Keep in mind you also cannot be on SLP if you want to roam internationally.

Also keep in mind that if you're a prepaid customer you cannot roam either (not saying you're a prepaid customer, but it applies to them as well).

Just my two cents :)

Thanks Daniel adding that addon did the trick. I now have service

I agree I should get my phone unlocked because the charges are INSANE!

If you get your phone unlocked Lebara offers some fantastic prices on prepaid. Vodafone is probably the best major carrier there.
