Anybody else noticed that Koodo's come-on ads say "Our Canada-wide plans let you call from anywhere in Canada across the country without paying long distance charges!" After you've signed up up for such a plan, say the CAN Talk & Text 600min Plan with "Canada Wide Calling" you'll notice that your monthly airtime usage summary reminds you that in truth " Your plan includes 600 local (not Canada Wide) anytime minutes." My search for an honest carrier continues...

Begging your pardon? I don't understand a word of what you just said :)

Canada wide plans ARE Canada wide, ask any of the several dozens of regulars here....

Sophia is completely right, I don't know of where your getting your info from Ron but the minutes are Indeed Canada wide. You can call from anywhere in Canada to anywhere in Canada with those minutes and no extra LD charges.

I'm one of the several dozen Sophia is referring to and I concur with her
