I have the North America long distance calling plan for my home phone. Is there a way to tell where my calls (going or receiving) are going to / coming from WITHIN the US? Will it be somewhere on my bill for me to be able to look up later? Is there some place to look at each individual call and analyze where the calls went to or came from within the US?
Any insight on this issue would be greatly apprecaited.
What if the phone is coming from / going to a cell phone that is based in California but they're traveling to Nevada or some nearby state. Will it change the cell phone's location on my home phone bill accordingly?
Yes, if you travel with your cellphone they know what location your phone is in, if its in texis and you make calls, you will be billed according to the roaming rates. if you are in california, same thing, rogers knows, and bills you accordingly.
Ahh, thanks but that wasn't what I was asking.
I stay in Canada no matter what. I'm saying, if someone calls my home (landline) from the US with their cellphone, and their cellphone is based in California but they're traveling... will it show up on my bill later what state they made the call from or will it just stay saying "California, US."
I have the North America unlimited calling plan for my landline.
it does not matter where the person who calls you is located. he can be in china town down the street from you or he can be calliing from beijing china, you will not always know this nor should you care. your billed exactly the same no matter where. its only important to know where you are located when you receive calls.
oh and if you have detailed billing, it will just show up as incoming, and what area you were answering it, so if ur toronto, it will sayincoming toronto, or if u were montreal, it would say irm. which stands for incoming roaming minutes, and will display the calling area u receivd it from.
I will not be leaving my home; this is not the issue. I just want to know if the other person who calls / I call, if it will show their new location within the US from where they are traveling. My question has nothing to do with how much I am billed and any roaming concerns as I have the North America UNLIMITED plan, so it does not matter.
If anyone else has some insight on this, feel free to post. =]
When someone is calling from lets say New york city & they are talking to you on the phone while they driving to New Jersey ( yes lets say that far). It will show New york seeing as they started the call from New york. Rogers & other carriers will ONLY show you which location the call was MADE from which means the call was started from. They will not show how many citys they phone call has passed & all.
So all in all Yes it will show you which location the other person was in while the made the call.
it will show u their phone number as meow mix explained, but there is no way to know their location if they are travelling, if the guy ended up in new jersey and called u, it will still show his new york telephone number. this is information you are not entitled to know. you just need to know his telephone number.
Right, this is a bit closer to what I was looking for but here's what i wanted to know. In your example, assume the person from the US calling you is FROM New York, but they are now visiting New Jersey. They call you from New Jersey or you call them while they're in New Jersey. (But they have a New York phone number, of course) Does it show up later as having been a call from New York or New Jersey? Remember, their cell phone number would be a New York number but they're calling while they're in the state of New Jersey.
