My son is traveling to U.S. I can purchase a talk and text bundle for his phone. I have a koodo phone too . Do i need to purchase a plan to be able to call or text him while he is in U.S. For my phone.
You can international text him for free while he is in the US
Now as for calling him you have a few options:
You can use the pay-per-use rate of $0.50/min
Or you could add the international long distance saver add on for $3/month and be able to call him for $0.05/min
Or get the US unlimited add-on for $10/month and call him unlimitedly
Keep in mind anytime minutes still apply for each of these add-ons. Also these add-ons are for calls that originate in Canada.
Keep in mind texts and calls that he receives counts toward his bucket of minutes/ texts as well.
