Cannot make local calls with long distance add-on

On my prepaid account, my Canada-wide booster minutes happened to run out, but I still had long distance booster (US/Canada) minutes left on my account. However, I was not able to make or receive any calls in Canada (including checking voicemail). Is this to be expected? I would have thought that the long-distance minutes would be used in a pinch?

(I cannot test anything since I needed to make calls and just bought minutes.)

The long distance calls are only for long distance, the same way that the canada wide are only for calling within canada.

You'll have to purchase a canada wide booster in order to make those calls.
