Receiving Call from Canada is there a charge when I'm outside Canada?


I'm from Canada but working in Nigeria right now, i have unlimited incoming calls in my plan. Is there a charge if my wife call me from Canada?

Yes. It doesn't matter if you have unlimited calls on your plan because you're outside of Canada. The calls don't cost minutes but you are roaming and using someone else's network so it's going to cost you either $1.50 or $2.50/minute! I suggest unlocking your phone if you can and using a SIM from a Nigerian provider or buying a cheap phone there in the mean time.

You will have serious roaming charges.

If you are at all talkative, best to investigate getting a local SIM or calling card.

Incoming texts are free, if you do activate roaming,  so you can call back using a cheaper alternative like VoIP. Check out Fongo, do a google search for international voip.

Dear Nigerian Prince,

Note that if you put your phone on seasonal hold, that when you come back you have to choose an current in-market plan, so you may not get your plan back if it is not available anymore.

I completely understand that when I said that I'm going to put my phone in vacation mode, no need to emphasize.

Just so if anyone else had a similar question and they read this they would know too
Thanks, I already downloaded Fongo.
But then, yo guys never satisfactorily answered his question. He wants to know the cost implication of receiving calls on his koodo line in Nigeria, not the cost of using it to make calls to Canada from Nigeria. Thanks

Costs the same either way.
