@Chalupa_Batman I used to get that on my Telus Can/US plan as well. And my work phone with Rogers sends a text saying Roam Like Home is enabled, but we have US roaming built into that plan as well. I wonder if it's not possible to customize those texts? In any case, I agree it's misleading. This is a cut and dry case that would warrant a refund without question though.
That sir is a serious flaw in the system and needs to be reported. It can't be a text that everyone get's regardless because that causes more problems like the case in point. It's a misleading and incorrect text as proven here which caused the customer to needlessly purchase an addon they did not need nor required. Now forcing them to waste time making the purchase, then wasting time coming here asking for help, which in turn waste more time contacting a CS Agent for assistance wasting more time waiting for a response. Then the customer doesn't get their money back they get a credit. That is called a scam!! It's completely asinine!!
I say very good. This really is a technical error on their part. They need to accept responsibility for their system errors. Please let us know if they refund you or not. They MAY just put the credit on your account instead of a refund and the credit will just come off your next bill.
hi @Prairieboy the text will come for all customers, even you have the Canada-US plan.
To ask for refund since you don't need, please submit ticket

They really should make it so it’s not possible to purchase US roaming add-ons if on a Canada-US plan
@Prairieboy Please submit ticket with support and see if they can reverse that add on for you

You do not need to purchase a roaming add-on if you are on a Canada-US plan. If you are in the states and don’t have service go to your cellular settings, network selection, turn off automatic and manually connect to either T-Mobile or AT&T and then reboot your device. More success has been had with T-Mobile but try them both.
