Re: international calls

basically, if ur in toronto and u answer your phone in hamilton, your outside your calling area. if your in toronto and someone calls u from china or china town in toronto, its the same. it does not matter where the person calling you is located. this information is not used by the carriers nor are you charged more for where the caller is located.

Re: international calls

Whether you'll be charged for them depends on where you are when you receive them.  If you're within your local calling area, defined by the area code of your cell number, then it'll just count towards your monthly minutes consumption.  The only time you'll incur charges is when you're roaming outside of your local calling area.

 

 

I hope that helps you.  🙂

Re: international calls

@suedar : I assume you're talking about Rogers Home Phone?  I assume you don't have an international plan of any kind?  From the following link, it looks like $0.10/minute to Germany?

Click Long Distance Tab, click the appropriate International Rates button?

 

Someone else here may be able to confirm.
