I've recently set up the wireless home phone, with the promotional $5 a month plan. I regularly call the US and Uruguay so I purchased the $3/mth international long distance saver to make calls at $.05/min and $.15/min respectively. Before I start making long distance calls, my question is this: will I get these LD rates with the $5 plan, or do I need to change my plan to one that has anytime minutes or else I will get dinged $.50/min for these calls? If the answer is yes, I need a different plan...I'm confused since all the plans have data and texting which I won't need/use on the home phone. Any info/ideas would be much appreciated! Justin

It is the only wireless home phone plan. It includes unlimited nationwide minutes. The 5 dollars a month is a promotion of the one plan; not another. You put in the add-on for reduced per minute charges for international calls and that's what you will be charged. That's all.

All wireless home phone minutes are 'anytime minutes', so you should not need to change your plan.
