Hello Louisa. Depending on what plan you have, there can be different charges. You can get some special add-ons to reduce this cost. Look on this page : https://shop.koodomobile.com/plans/add-ons/index.html You have the option to have 3 or 30 days US minutes. Look for those add-on on the same page. 3-Day U.S. Roaming Unlimited Text and the ones under. And you will find all extra information on that page : http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-long-distance-and-travelling/travelling The zone you will be in is going to be zone 1

Hi Louisa, Robert is right! The rates indicated above apply to every Koodo customers though, but you could add one of our US Roaming feature and avoid an expensive bill! You'll find more info here: http://koo.do/PQ2Kya 🙂 Enjoy your trip!
Hello! If I don't purchase an extra roaming add-on, but turn my phone on periodically to see if I've received any texts/voicemails will there be any extra charges for having my phone on outside of canada if my data is turned off? (This is already taking into consideration the per text/call/voicemail charges that apply, of course.) I'm not planning on doing any calling or texting myself unless its an emergency, so I don't need a ten or twenty dollar add-on. Thank-you!

If you actually call your voicemail it will count as usage too and since the system that posts the icon works through SMS there might be a charge for that too.

OK...I get a plan when traveling to the USA and then pay the roaming rates as listed above? If no plan then I pay more...correct? Also how soon do I need to buy the plan prior to going?
