I have this plan and thought it covered UNLIMITED incoming and outgoing calls in Canada. I'm now being charged for overage. Please help me understand.

This is going to depend on how your rate plan shows up. As far as i know, there never has been a rate plan with (CD/VM) that also included data.

Most of the $50 plans have included unlimited airtime, so you wouldn't be charged any overages for the airtime, unelss you're doing long distance calling outside of canada.

Ah. Unfortunately, you were wrong. There's a $50 Talk and text that is Unlimited calling across Canada, but has only pay-per-use data.

The $50 Canada-wide Data plan has a cap on the # of minutes it has.

When did you get the plan? It changed a few times in the past 2 months. I'll tell you exactly what it covers.

Thank you for your reply. I got the plan in April 2012 but have only been charged for overages in the last couple of months. As I'm of the older generation I don't understand what uses data. I know I don't seem to be charged for in coming calls but now being charged over a certain amount for out going calls. I mostly use texting I believe I pay $10.00 extra for unlimited.
Again thank you for your help in understanding this
