When can I expect to see my incoming Canadian phonecall on my Canadian phone while I am in the USA on my Koodo self serve.  I've been waiting to see how much it costs for husband and I to talk from landline in Canada to his cell while he is in Seattle.

You're roaming, roaming charges could be delayed up to 90 days.


I will tell you that without a roaming package,


The call costs 1.50$ per minute
Incomming texts are free
Outgoing texts are billed at 5$ per 100 texts sent per billing cycle.

Even if he is at the receiving end of the call.  Does this apply to his texting if he replies to a text?  Thanks

She doesn't have an add on. We're talking standard rates here.

LiardC has a point though, buy the unlimited add on for the roaming phone and you won't have to worry about any of this. Pay one flat rate and talk / text all ya want. No surprises

Roaming packages are not automatic and need to be added.

There is a 3 day add-on too. Look at the link I posted.

Okay he is trying this and AT&T for some reason gives him some kind of stupid message and it just isn't working.

Kathleen I'm trying to help you bit the information you're providing isn't in line with the questions I'm asking you.

Your husband is where right now?
Where are you?
Who is calling who?

What is it that you want AT&T to do that's not working? What is the stupid message?

You told me the plan was automatic but that someone set it up for you. And BAM it worked.
Who set it up?

To buy a roaming package you need to either add it in self serve or text the corresponding code to Koodo.
