Ive been calling 1 of my family memebrs who lives in Niagara Falls and i called 2 times but no answer.. But later on they did answer.. but anyways I looked at my Long Distance usage and it shows i used 2 mins when they never answered the phone.. Does that still count? As it did go to voicemail both times is that why?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I agree with pauly here.
IF it did go to the answering machine (weither a LOCAL answering machine on a phone at the house, or a 'service' like rogers answering machine), it considers the call CONNECTED and will start charging you LD.
If you dont plan on leaving a message, or want to avoid those charges, always make sure to hang up usualy before the end of the 4th ring, where it normaly will go to the answering machine after that.
I thought for a LD phone call there's a "grace period" of say the first 30 seconds or so, so if the call is picked up by an answering machine then it isn't charged as long distance. I suppose it's different now because it's classified as "voice mail"!
Ok.. Yes i let it go to Voicemail Lol... But hung up before it said after the beep... So i guess i got charged..
I know alot about roaming but not long distance... Funny Eh? Lol
