Hello, I am travelling from Canada for 2 months in Mexico. I have a monthly mobile plan with Koodo and Easy International Roaming is enabled. I have been charged $64 already for 4 days for answering phone calls. I can’t afford to be charged $16 a day every time I use some data to connect to the Internet when I am outside of a WiFi zone. For example, when I order an Uber, I have to be connected to WiFi, and this isn’t always possible without using data.
I am considering buying a Mexican SIM card (Telcel) with an Internet connection and 300 GB of data and free unlimited phone calls within Mexico and North America. What I need most is to be able to order Ubers and make local calls without incurring extra charges.
My question is what happens to my Koodo plan/service if I do this? Is it simply inactive when the Canadian SIM card is removed? When I return to Canada and replace that SIM card, does my service continue seamlessly? Are there any risks/downfalls to getting the Mexican SIM card and plan? I would greatly appreciate some help understanding how this works.
