International toll free number

If I call an international toll free number does that mean that I'm already using the 500 one-time Int'l LD bonus?

If it's a toll free number then no. But on the other hand some international toll free numbers called from Canada aren't free so you'll be using those international calling minutes that were given to you for free as a bonus 🙂

it's not a one time call No until you use them all, 

 

for Example long distance in canada or from USA,, Add (+1 or 1 ) in front of the any area code,
1416xxxxxxx,
or
+1416xxxxxxx,
both is will going through your call...

 

International call from Canada, dial: 011 Digit Mobile Number.

Technically yes, but customers have reported that toll free numbers do not deduct from Plan/addon minutes.

 

Test it and see. The Overview counter is very immediate. So call a toll free number, as soon as it starts ringing that is when the timing starts. Stay on for a 1 or 2 minutes then disconnect.

Do you see a reduction in the addon?

Have you tried calling that international toll free number yet?  If you have, let us know how you made out, if you don't mind.  Were any add on minutes from your account used?

That way we'll know what to tell others with the same question, with certainty.

1. Then why......would it be called an international toll free number? If it does not work?

2. If you say call a toll free number that is toll free in province or country like Australia....what happens if we from Canada calls it. 

a. Does it go though as an LD call against our add on?

b. Is it rejected?

c. Would we have to find an alternate number to call against our LD add on?

3. Are some toll free numbers assigned to a region or world wide...and how do you know the difference?

Why is instant pudding called instant pudding when it's not really instant?  And it's a sorry excuse for pudding in the first place.

Some international toll free numbers only work if the call is made from a particular country or region. The company paying for the toll free number determines which calls they'll pay for ( accept ) and from where.

Kinda like not wanting to accept a collect call.
