Three phones, one plan, and how to tell which has activated Easy Roam.

Upon travelling to Portugal yesterday, one of the three phones on my plan somehow activated Easy Roam. I got an email confirming. I have no idea which phone activated the EasyRoam plan, because the last four digits of all of the phones on the plan is the same. I don't want to be charged $12 per phone per day!  I wish there was an option for a plan for a month, and not just the Easy Roam option.  I don't want to buy an international SIM card b/c I don't want to negate the rest of the data on my phone for the time I'm here.

You can select each line individually in self-serve. You see the full number. You would select view rate plan, then manage add-ons. Also it won't activate if you don't use your phone for calls, outgoing SMS, or cellular data.

I'm not sure I follow with your comment about how buying a local prepaid sim in Portugal would negate your data

Using a local SIM means the minutes and data already paid for on the normal Koodo plan are effectively of no use to the subscriber.

Well so is roaming and not intending to use easy roam. Pay extra for an add-on to give you extra data while your regular plan data you wouldn't be using, pay 12 dollars a day for easy roam to use your data allotment, or go with the cheapest and most data available for use route and just get a local sim.

100% correct. Just making the point that pay-per-use and the older x days/x roaming data/x roaming minutes actually could cost more than advertised because of subscriber being locked out of normal plan for the duration.
