I am in the States and have purchased the Unlimited Talk and Text add-on. A friend back in Canada just said "Be careful you don't get charged for all the emojis in that text!" Hmmm? Am I being charged for sending emojis when I am not in wifi? Or even when I am in wifi? And if I send pictures from a wifi zone am I being charged extra?

No. You're not charged for standard emoji. However sending Photos via text (on Koodo) does require data be on. If you're roaming and don't have data included in your roaming package you will be charged for the data used To send the photo.


To avoid this. Turn off data roaming in your phone settings.

Thanks Chad! I am only sending pictures from wifi areas and have turned data roaming off. Thanks again!
