How can I buy 60 minutes to call from Canada to Mexico?

If someone calls me from Mexico does it charge me long distance and how much per minute?

I only have a plan that is unlimited calling in Canada.

If you are receiving a call from Mexico, it is treated the same as receiving any regular call from Canada.

Calling Mexico using the pay per use rate is $0.50/min
If you get the International Long Distance Saver add-on for $3/month then it gets lowered to $0.05/min

As long as you are in Canada incoming calls are free from anywhere.

Check out the rates calling to Mexico on this page.

Buy the long distance saver add-on for $3 a month. Mexico is 50 cents a minute using pay per use rates. It is 5 cents a minute if you have the add-on.

yeah it's better to add the long distance saver $3/month than paying the pay per use. it's a big savings especially if you call mexico for long minutes or hours.

if he doesnt need it anymore, he can cancel it anytime right?

Yes you can remove the add-on when you no longer need it

Correct. If you're making more than a 7min call every month though it's worth it to keep around.

Dennis hit it out of the park.

Basically you need to add this option on your account: Long Distance Saver (3$/month).

With that setting whenever you call Mexico it cost you 5¢ per min:
- 60 mins end up costing you $6.00+ taxes
