Incoming long distance from USA . I am getting conflicting information. I have the Canada Wide plan with free calling after 5 and weekends. If I receive a call from the USA, will I be charged? My Koodo rep said YES, no matter who is making the call. Please advise. I dont want to accept a long distance call from my friends in the USA if I have to pay .50 cents a minute to talk.
OK so all incoming calls are charged the same. After 5pm you won't get charged for any incoming ca from anywhere so long as you are in Canada. Daytime minutes between 8am an 5pm will b used for incoming minutes as well as outgoing and after that you actually get charged overage rates.
I do not work for Koodo, this is just how I have always known receiving long distance calls to work no matter what provider you are with (the caller incurs the charges). My father calls me in Canada to my Koodo line from the states regularly. I never incur any long distance charges and this is how my home line works also. Regular rates/daytime minutes (unless after 5) etc will apply.
