Yes. The add-on is exactly what it says - an add-on. It's not a standalone feature. Your primary network is Koodo in Canada. When you add a US roaming add-on, you're using someone else's network down there.

Hello Patricia! If you don't need your canadian plan anymore, why not unlock the phone and us it in the US with an US plan? It's going to be less expensive!

do I have to wait until I am in the us to unlock the phone? Does that mean that I use a carrier other than koodoo in the us?

No, you do not have to wait to unlock.

Koodo has no presence in the USA. You roam on carriers Koodo has made agreements with to send billing information about your use on the foreign network so Koodo can bill you. It is often cheaper, especially if you need data, to purchase a local SIM.

No, you would need to call Koodo in order to unlock your phone BEFORE leaving to the US.
