Hi, will I be charged for getting my credit card activated? I have to dial this 1-888 number in order to have this credit card activated. I do have unlimited nation wide Canadian calling but don’t have Calling to US, and don’t want to be charged. Will I be charged for a outbound call? When I look up the number on Hiya, it does say that it is toll free, but shows USA as the location.

It will use your allotted minutes if you are on a limited plan - other than that it is a free call.

Since you have unlimited nationwide minutes you will not be charged for calling toll free numbers. Otherwise if you have for example a 500 minute plan, calling during the day before 5pm would use up your minute.

Gotcha, thank you. I call Amex customer service which is also toll me and located in USA... never been charged. What surprised is when I had a talk with TD on social media and they told me that they might charge me for a outbound call eventhough I told them that it displays a toll free number and I have unlimited, nationwide Canadian minutes.
