I was just about to get a phone and sign up for a new package but see that all levels charge .25 cents per outgoing text. Are there any packages where the outgoing are included or at least not so expensive?

All of the canada wide normal and promotional plans include unlimited messaging. Where are you seeing the 25 cents thing?

She's probably looking at the overages (applicable for customers on previous plans w/o unlimited messaging). Robert, that's because some people may choose to use it on a pay-per-use service instead of paying $15 for unlimited messaging on prepaid

In the details of the plan -unlimiited incoming. .25 outgoing. There is an unlimited option for an extra 5.00 per month, which I would gladly buy into however it is not available to new canada wide plans.

That's because all the plans currently offered already offer Unlimited messaging included so you don't need to add it. So any plan you pick on the website right now, WILL give you unlimited messaging and you won't be charged any extra to text while in Canada. Do you understand now?

Then I am daft. As this is not how I interpret the plan. However, I thank everyone for the quick responses and will follow through tomorrow in the hopes that you are right and I am wrong

Perhaps I am daft, but it seems pretty clear

What you see is the overage rate OVERAGE RATE for those who DON'T HAVE UNLIMITED MESSAGING included in their plan.

EVERY PLAN you see right now on the website includes unlimited messaging. You will NOT be charged extra for sending text messages as long as you are on a plan thats currently advertised on the website. And as long as it says it includes unlimited mesaging, you won't be charged any extra.

I am one of Koodo's Mobile Masters and that is how it works.

Well Ahmad
Forgive me for clarifying what I was interpreting.
Do you yell at everyone like this? Initially I was impressed by the quick responses to my question.
Goodnight

No, I don't actually. I actually posted 2 times before that telling you the same thing, but you just kept saying "but.." and "but.." and it seemed to me that you didn't understand what I was saying when I said that it applies to plans without unlimited messaging only. I capitalized the important parts so that you could understand, just like how companies bold or underline important words when describing products. It's not yelling at all. Have a good night, Margaret. Remember, we're always here to answer your questions :)
