You don't get charged long distance, but you pay the roaming rate for usage, either $7 a day if you're using easy roam or $1.50/minute if you're not.

Hi Sa,


What plan do you have? If you are using easyroam with a postpaid plan then calling local us number is included. If you are roaming on a prepaid or using payperuse. The rate will be different (for prepaid you need us roaming booster)

On prepaid, there is no per diem charge, but separate boosters are required for roaming minutes, data, and text.
On postpaid using EasyRoam, the minutes and data come from your normal plan allotment.
In either case, once roaming is activated calls to and from US or Canadian numbers are equivalent.
