Does a call to a Canadian Govt 1-800 # use prepaid airtime?

It does. 1-800 only cuts your long distance cost on your cellphone, but still uses regular airtime minutes.

So much for 1-800 #s being "toll free".

Toll is long distance.

In fact. I think whatever number you call, it will use your airtime minutes.

Since airtime is kinda low right now, I made the call from a friends unlimited airtime cell instead.
