not just for texting
but for calls and data
so many instances where people are getting charged for roaming in canada
because thety live in a boader town
usally told to manually select networks, but this is annoying as you maybe on a call and you don't know if your roaming or not, and who thinks to look down at thier phone in a middle of a call to make sure they arent roaming.
so please koodo, can u get a uUS roaming block not just for sms but for everything :)
there will be less disputes for accidental roamaing ;)

I believe this currently works for pre-paid (since pre-paid aren't able to go to the US) ... so theoretically it seems like it's something doable, though other carriers work the same way.
So while I agree it would be good to have, I'm not sure they can unless you're using a non-Smartphone.

Set your phone to Manular network selection. This is not something you do per call, this is a general option in any good phone. The phone will then only connect to the network you have chosen manually.

Haha, that should have read "manual". But "Manular" is a nice creation, too. :-)

this always happens when i'm visiting girlfriends parents, literally other side of the river is the US, i get the txt msgs when i get on AT&T's towers, but if my phone rang, i probably wouldn't see it before i answered :(
