If I'm in the States, I should still be able to send and receive texts right? I added-on the 10$ 3 day messaging add-on, but in the past my phone hasn't worked at all when I cross over the border. Is that normal?? The only option on my phone is the "Data roaming" which is on.

Yes it should work.

Go to your settings and networks and select automatic. This should enable the phone to connect to a roaming US network that Koodo is partnered with

This is the only page relating to mobile networks..not sure where I'd check off automatic lol unless you were refering to the network mode that says auto connect

Okay..so I should do that when I cross over? If I go to it now it wants me to disconnect from my data service so I'll do that before I cross..thank you for your help.

If you do it while in canada it should automatically select koodo.

Is it not automatic now?

I would assume so, I've never changed it. If I click on Network Operators..this is what it asks me.
