If I have the prepaid $15 base plan and I buy a 500 minute talk booster, are those minutes good for anywhere in Canada or am I deducted more for making and receiving calls outside of my local area? If so, at what rate are the minutes deducted for making/receiving a call from an area outside the local calling area.

Hi Danika,

All talk boosters are nation-wide,  so you can call any canadian phone number from anywhere in Canada.

You can also receive calls from anywhere on the planet as long as you are in Canada at no extra charge.

The only uptick in price you can incur is calling a non-Canadian number: US numbers will cost you regular minutes x 2, other non-Cdn numbers regular minutes x 5.
