Calling from a friend's phone or a public phone and having it charged to our Rogers account

Dear Rogers (or any member of the Community),

 

Is it possible to call from a friend's phone or a public phone and have it charged to our Rogers account? I am about to travel and would like to avoid having the long distance charges appear on my friend's phone bill.

 

Thanks.

 

Andre (Toronto)

If you are calling your phone from a payphone or a friends phone you can make a collect call which should bill whom ever you call and not the line that your calling from.

You might also want to look into buying a cheap calling card which you can then call a 1888 or 1800 number and have your call connected for a lower rate charged off the balance on the prepaid calling card.

What you're looking for is a 3rd party billed call.  While that can be done, there needs to be someone at your phone to accept those charges.

You could probably forward calls from your phone to a cell phone, and then use the operator for a 3rd party billed call, and accept the charges wherever you forwarded your line to.

But, as stated above, a calling card would be a better option.  3rd party calls are expensive.
