The Roaming packages Koodo offers do not ensure the phone will work they just apply discounts for use while roaming. Kopp (like any other carrier) cannot guarantee coverage or even function while roaming since they don't own the other network.

There could be many reasons why your phone didn't fuction. Everything from the wrong settings on your phone to a network coverage issue.

You should check your phone settings first to rule out network settings. Firstly network selection should be on Automatic. If it's on manual then your phone was not set correctly for roaming.
