Hi Sandra,

If someone is calling you and they do not have nationwide calling like you do, then they will get charge long distance but not you.

Ok so if Comox is calling your Vancouver number while you are in Comox then it is Canadian long distance for both you and the caller.
Now if you are on a Canada Wide plan then you wont be charged long distance fees. However if you dont, then you will incur long distance charges.

If the caller does not have canada wide calling, then they will be charged long distance for calling a Vancouver number

Now if the Vancouver number is calling a local Comox number while you are in Comox, then it is considered a local call for you. And as long as he is in Comox too, it will be a local call for him as well
