Confused and really couldn't find an answer for this. I just need this explained so I know which plans/add-ons I should look into.

If I make a call (Canada) to the US, does it use my anytime minutes or do I get charged for the call separately? Or do I only get charged if I go over my anytime minutes? The "US Unlimited" add-on isn't available in my province so I'm unsure what's the best option/plan to have for making regular calls to the US. I plan on upgrading to whatever works with my situation.

I have currently have 300 monthly anytime minutes and unlimited weekends/evenings + regular plan benefits and Canadian LD.

It's a double edged sword

Your anytime minutes are deducted and you're charged a per minute long distance rate

If yourgoing to be making a lot of calls to the US i highly recommend Skype2go

For 2.99 a month u can convert us numbers to Canadian. Doesn't use data at all for the call
