There are two lines(accounts) under my name. For some reason, my data always going out faster than my wife's. I just wonder can we combine the data together and share it? Two lines both have 10G data each. Thanks

Hi David,
Koodo plans are not sharing plans, so you could not do it. Those sharing plans normally are available at Tier 1 carriers (Rogers/Bell/Telus).

When your together you could set up the one with more data as a wifi hotspot and connect the other to it to try and even it out so when your apart there's more day for the person using more. Not ideal but could help

Unfortunately I just can't do it now. Two lines are same: 10g data, unlimited call in Canada, unlimited international msg, bonus of 2000 mins of international calls. If I use my wife phone as hot spot, I will pay $12 + $12 for international roaming per day. That's expensive, so I disable her data, and I am hotspot now.

If I use text msg only and use my wife phone data, I will not be charged $12 per day?

So, you both are traveling now?

If you turn off your easy roam, then there is no $12 per day charge. But there will be pay-per use charge if you use outgoing text($0.60 per), and or data($5/MB).

And $12/day when your wife use data/easy roam.

I don’t know which country you are traveling, but is there any free WIFI spot in the city?( Like hotel or public place).
If you can access/use it, then you don’t have to use your wife’s data.
Incoming text is always free. So, you can reply people only it necessary , or through app when you can access to WIFI to cost down?

Even if they did, you are referring to roaming right now.  With roaming, things are not that simple
