Just in case anyone is wondering, my trip to the U.S. cost $49 instead of the $40 it would have with the old package. Too bad someone said that they were gone before others figured out you could add it on by calling.

Calling isnt a guaranteed option and i believe is only available with the 30 day pacakages. Its very foggy what yiu can and cant get.

Just Glassin' but there's little comparison because the new options allow greater freedom compared to the tiny data buckets which were previously available. We burned through the roaming package we got last time in under a week. If we took the same trip yes it would have cost us a little more but we'd have our entire plan data bucket available (8gb).

So if I understand this correctly this roaming feature is $100 a month if I am in the USA for three months (7.99p/day, $100 cap)

That is ($100 easyroam + your rateplan)/1billing cycle. If you go over you rateplan minutes/data, you are still be charged overage.

If you are going for 3 months, cheaper to put your Koodo account on vacation for $15 a month and use a US prepaid plan like Tracfone.com

There are any number of prepaid US plans if you root around a bit, but Tracfone includes calling to Canada without charging any penalty or long distance. As of December 1st, unlocking your Koodo phone will be free of charge.
