re: anytime minutes and US texting

I'm considering signing up for the $45 Light weight canada wide plan. It says there are 500 anytime minutes- does this include my outgoing calls only? Or do incoming calls count for the 500 as well?

Also, it says I can get US roaming text messages for $5/100- is this an extra that I sign up for, or does it simply count how many texts I send from Canada to the US which then get added to my monthly bill (meaning I could pay $0-$5 according to how many texts I send)? Thanks!

Hi Sarah,

Incoming calls count against your 500 minutes as well.

The $5 US text addon is only needed when you travel to the US and send messages from there :) The addon is not needed to send messages from Canada to the US, that is included in your plan and you can send as many as you like :D
