I just want to know if I call Barrie Ontario from my office in Newmarket Ontario will I billed long distance charges? if not do i need to just dial the area code plus the phone number or should I put a 1+area code + phone number?
The easiest method to use is to place the call without using 1 when dialing. If you get the warning before the call is place, then you know it's long distance. You can hang up when you hear the message and you won't be charged.
Are you certain you don't have nationwide minutes? Most plans do.
My plan says unlimited Canada-Wide Calling so why am I going to be dinged long distance? I have the unlimited texting and calling package for $53 + the cost of the phone at $15 per month. I made an attempt but was informed that I should stay on the line for my call to be completed and long distance charges may apply. I hung up just in case there is a long distance charge.
If the 'long distance charges' message bothers you simply add 1 as a prefix to the area code+ number and you won't hear it. Just make sure you check your usage occasionally to avoid overages. The after 5 pm and weekends free is a great perk of the plan.
