My plan is for all of Canada. It works everywhere but in Manitoba. What's the problem?

Have you tried pulling the battery and SIM card and rebooting the phone?

If it's an iPhone: try holding the lock button and home button simultaneously until it goes black and once it shows the apple logo then release the buttons.

It all depends on where you are. Koodo's plans will cover you where ever you are in Canada that has network coverage. Currently the coverage in Manitoba is limited to the greater Winnipeg area, with coverage going out to places like Brandon, Selkirk, Steinbach and that area. If you select Manitoba from the dropdown in this coverage map link I have attached you will see where you have coverage. It has gotten a lot better in the past few years, but still has a ways to go.

Further to Mark's comments - the plan means there are no long distance charges for any calls you make to phone numbers in Canada, or receive in Canada, while on the Koodo network. This is not the same as being able to make a call anywhere in Canada, as you are subject to network availability.
