I just switched to the $45 1GB, 200 local plan. It doesn't really say how much it costs to call another city within Canada. Does anyone know?

I'd say something around "expensive"? Seriously, I have no idea. Doesn't it say in your plan details?

Nitty Gritty doesn't explicitly state how much per minute within Canada. It's very elusive. I may have screwed myself in the quest for that sweet, sweet data.

There are ways around those heavy charges. Skype2go works wondersfor issues like this and ddoesn't use sweet data

I have been using voip.ms to call overseas. It's $0.0052 per minute for Canada. I will also checkout Skype2Go. Cheers!

Actually I use voip.ms also. You could also just setup a local call back number and call whomever you want

o.O

How didn't expect that much. At that price you could use a payphone and it'd be less expensive

Haha, I remember the time I was looking for one when I was in the US to make a call. Ended up going to a hotel instead!

@Dave per Chad the rate is $0.50/min for additional local mins and $0.50/min for Canadian LD.

Hey Dave! The long distance rate to call outside of your local area is $0.50/minute.  
The additional usage rate if you go over your 200 minutes is also $0.50/minute.  This means if you go over your minutes and place a long distance call, it will be $0.50 (additional minute charge) + $0.50 (long distance charge). Hope this clarifies things!

Is this plan include "Unlimited evenings and weekends (5pm)"?
If so, is it also LOCAL minutes or Canada wide?  I assume it's local too... :/

Seems like a safe assumption.
