Hey guys,

Something very weird is happening. So I switched to koodo only a few days ago with my iphone 4s. It works fine however I only get service when my cellular data is on and the 3g is on. If i turn cellular data off on my iphone 4s, i get no service (No texts, no calls, nothing!). I dont want to keep my cellular data on because it uses my 1GB data and I don't want to do that only to text and call and such. Any help?!?!?

Are you sure you are turning off your cellular data and not your 3G?

Cellular data should not affect your phone service, however Koodo requires 3G as they do not have a 2G network

3G is not the same as cellular data.

Cellular data is 3G as is cellphone call, but when refering to 3G, we're talking about the network
