There is a lot of talk about calling FROM Cuba to Canada but what about calling TO Cuba from Canada. I have a Koodo phone and so does my girlfriend. We both have the LD Saver on our phones and the other addon that you need for long distance savings.

Scenario 1: I am in Cuba, she is on Canada. She calls my Koodo phone from her Koodo phone. What is the rate per minute?

Scenario 2: I am in Cuba, she is in Canada. I call her Koodo phone from my Koodo phone, what is the rate per minute?

I am asking this because I am finding on the Koodo website two different rates per minute, one is $2.50 and the other is $1.00 per minute.

Thanks

EDIT

1) Local minutes apply since she is calling your local Koodo number and not a Cuban number. Roaming rate for you $2.50/min

2) Local minutes apply for her. Roaming rate for you $2.50/min

Thanks Dennis for the fast response.

So going the next step.

She calls me for 5 minutes. How much will she be billed, how much will I be billed for that call?

Thanks

She'll be billed $5 if she calls you for 5 minutes from canada since the her LD rate is $1/min as Dennis mentioned. Your roaming rate is 2.50/min so you will be billed 12.50 if you receive her call and talk for 5 minutes.

WOW!! So for a 5 minute call she gets billed $5 and I get billed $12.50 for a total of $17.50 for a 5 minute call?

That can't be right?

My bad Juan. I forgot she was calling your local Koodo cell and not a Cuban number. It is all local air time for her. And just the roaming charge for you.

Roaming is expensive.
