I got the $15 Pre-paid plan with 500 minutes. What about Data limits/cost/cap? Do I need a Data booster too? If so, how much does Data cost per how much if I do not?

I have it so my phone will download all updates and auto-sync only to Wifi spots, but I want to know anything relating to Pre-paid plans and Data, do I have a specific amount of Data with my plan? None? Does it do the whole $7.50 pay-per-use for 50MB thing?

No data is included. You will need a data booster for data to work.

În order for data to function you would need to buy a data booster as well. So no, there isn't a pay per use option in prepaid.

Which are available at this site http://koodomobile.com/en/on/plansand...

So if I don't get a Data booster pack. What does this mean I can't do? I can make phonecalls or send texts still - just can't download things unless it's Wifi?

You can't browse the Internet but you can make phone calls and revive text messages for sure!

Well, that's probably perfect for me then. I can browse the net simply on my wifi as I did buy internet for myself in my new apartment, so, it'd only be useful to buy Data plans if internet perhaps wasn't had at all.

So, I shouldn't get any 'hidden fees' due to not having a data plan? Even for the miniscule amount of kb's that are sent via mobile in the background and foreground?

Because you are on prepaid, the fact that you don't have any data booster will result in you no having data access at all. So no hidden fees! What a nice thing. Isn't it. Also, you could buy a data booster and keep it for as long as you like. You know, just in case you want to look something up really fast. For 30$ for example, you could keep that 1gb of data for the whole year if you want. You never know when data can become useful (looking through a map, an important email, etc).

I'm an extremely indoors kind of person, and with Wifi hotspots being a thing that will only grow, then I suspect the only time this will be useful for people like me is if I go in the buttf**** of nowhere, or a very rural town, or camping.

But, great to know. Thanks for the help to all who helped.
