If you can dial it, and it rings, you would pay no LD charges.

David, I can dial an American number (ie-an area code 323 number, which is Los Angeles) from my phone, it rings, but I still pay long distance

You can also dial some 1-800 numbers and it won't connect, because the purchaser did not buy North America Wide Toll Free.

Do you mean whoever owns the 1-800 number, as in they didn't make their number available to be called from outside the US?

No, that's a toll free number.  1-800, 1-855, 1-844, 1-877, 1-866, 1-888 are all toll-free numbers.  Even if the number belongs to a Canadian company, it'll show as being an American number because the toll-free area codes (the 800/877/888 etc part) are registered in the US

You don't pay long distance charge when you use toll free number.
But it still use your airtime minutes if you made calls outside of your unlimited minutes window.
Thank you all!
