It's depends on which booster you buy.

$30 Booster - 3¢/MB
$20 Booster - 4¢/MB
$10 Booster - 10¢/MB

I have no booster yet I'm still able to use data? Maybe I'm actually not on prepaid? I'm unable to access my self serve for some reason and unable to tell what my plan is.

You can use WIFI to browse internet.

Also you said you don't know you have prepaid plan or not. How much is your plan? Or do you receive a bill?

You can only use data if you have a data booster, as Mayumi explained, Dylan.

However even without data you'll be able to send picture messages using MMS - a perk that we prepaid users have and postpaid users have not :)

If you are on the prepaid plan, you have to get a "Data booster" to use data.
if you are on the monthly plan, you can use data (either data is included or charged by pay-per use.)

When you signed up with Koodo, were you required to show 2 pieces of ID, and did Koodo do a credit check? If yes, then you're on a plan. If not, you're on prepaid.

Thanks for the help everyone, only thing I managed to find out that was 100% true is that I'm on the TAB with Koodo for my phone. So I must be on a monthly plan? In that case my data is costing me 5$ for every 50mb?

Also, apparently my plan is exactly "30$" per month, don't see any plans for that though.

If you bought your phone on a TAB, you're DEFINITELY on a plan, and yes, if you just signed up (the last few weeks) that means data is indeed costing you $5 for every 50MB. Be cautious how you use it... 50MB is brutal and is less than a floppy disk per day (as one MM said recently, I love that expression too much not to use) :D

OK. you are on the monthly/postpaid plan. There are many type of $30 plan depends on when you get it.
so try to register for Self serve and you will see what is included in your plan
