I'll soon be snowbirding in the US and am looking for an affordable plan in the USA so that I can call and text to Canada and the USA. I would need about 400/500 minutes call time for a month. Would also like to have a large data plan. I've a Samsung Galaxy s3 which can be unlocked. Any thoughts or recommendations

Koodo does not offer plans such as that for USA travel. Might be best to go with a USA provider.

Unlock your Samsung S3 at $50 with koodo (if your eligible). Account must be in good standing and you'd have to have a Koodo account for 90 days. At which point you can activate a prepaid service with a Us cell phone carrier and use the same phone.

Given your requirements, if you unlock your phone, you can consider Roam Mobility:

Unlimited US nationwide talk
Unlimited international text
Free long distance calls to Canada
Tethering to multiple devices

Roam mobility is good, T-Mobile is good as well. Last I checked on prepaid they offered unlimited calling and data for $60 a month.
