Traveling to France and Italy next month. I have a Samsung S5 neo, locked I think. What plan or add-on would I need to have someone in France call me while I am in France? Is it a long distance call with charges for the caller? Should 011 precede my phone number? And if I wanted to call a number in France or in Canada from France, what add-on would I need? I hope this is clear .Thanks

Hello Mary,

What plan or add-on would I need to have someone in France call me while I am in France? 
You can tall any travel plan offered by Koodo (see here: http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-long-distance-and-travelling/Travelling).

Is it a long distance call with charges for the caller? 
Yes it will be a long distance for the caller because he will be calling a Canadian number even if it's located in France.
Should 011 precede my phone number?
He would be dealing the number the same as if he was calling in Canada

And if I wanted to call a number in France or in Canada from France, what add-on would I need?
The add-on I suggested above will work. Make sure you add the free intl roaming add-ons as well

Your best option would be to unlock your phone and buy a prepaid SIM card over there.
