I'm going to be in the US for a few days soon, I will get a roaming add on while I am there, but I am trying to figure out if people with US numbers will be charged long distance for calling my Canadian number. It seems like I will be able to make and receive calls to both US and Canadian numbers, but I'm not sure if it will be treated as long distance for the people calling my number. Thanks

US callers will pay long distance to call your Canadian number. Folks back home in Canada will pay regular rates as if your were still home. All of your minutes or data while you are in the US will come out of your roaming package, not your regular plan, regardless of who does the calling.
