If you go over your "daytime minutes", do your calls to the U.S. (with the international long distance saver plan) go from .05 to .35 per minute?

You will still be charged $0.05/minute if you go over your airtime minutes with the LDsaver.

Good question Tammy! Myke, I was wondering, is the LD saver separate from the "normal" minute allowance? Say you have 200 minutes with a plan and you call to the US for 50 minutes, do you still have 200 minutes or does it go down to 150? What happens with the 201th minute, is that $0.05 or $0.55?

Just being curious :)

You will be charged airtime plus applicable long distance charges.

Hey Tammy, Just to confirm, you'll be charged airtime ($0.05/mins for the Ld Saver) and long distance ($0.35 or $0.50 depending on your rate plan).

Hi Laura,

Bassically it gives you a more favorable rate when calling internationally. So if you call the united states without the add-on, you will pay 0.50$ per minute. If you have the add-on, your rate will be 0.05$ per minute. It's great if you call occasionally, and don't need the unlimited calling. You would need to call to the US for more than 233 minutes to make the 10$ unlimited add-on worth-it.

Does the long distance saver count for calls that you receive or only for calls that you send?

International long distance charges do not apply to incoming calls.
