I'm a new customer to Koodo and just joined today. I have the $30 a month plan on a 2 year term. Do I have the ability to roam in the USA (no data, phone use only)?

Hey Selena,

No your plan does not include any US roaming except you can receive texts for free. Otherwise, you have to add a US roaming add-on when you travel to the states if you want to avoid high charges: https://www.koodomobile.com/add-ons?I...

He Selena and welcome!


Unless you're on the spending limit program, your phone will indeed roam in the USA, the rates are: calls 1.50$ per minute, incoming texts are free, outgoing texts are 5$ per 100 messages (per billing cycle). Data is $ per mb


Koodo also offers roaming discount add ons which you can find under monthly add ons in self serve. These provide up to unlimited talk or text or both and even some data.


Hope that helps

Great! If you have any other questions come to the community first. Someone is here all the time and we're often way faster than calling in.

I was just in the USA for a week and did not call or text or use data at all and now I see that I have a $5 charge on my account for 0mb. Is that normal?
