US Roaming - Unlimited Talk (10-day) - $8.00 clarification please

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

I would like to purchase this add on when I go to US, does this mean it includes unlimited INCOMING and OUTGOING while I am in US? Does "unlimited talk" is me calling out only that I will get charge if I answer a call?

Remember while in US: US roaming Talk cannot be stacked. Next one has to be purchased after initial expire but you have to wait 24 hours.

@Anonymous Yes I guess I could have skipped using the word "technically" - it is indeed officially referenced in the help article.

 @Nezgar If you mean technically that it works somehow then it is indeed officially recognized. If you meant to mean technically as though it might be a bit of a bug or glitch then see above.

@dna4835Another nice thing with the $8 Unlimited U.S. Talk Only roaming plan is that while in the US you can call any number in Canada as well as the US. You will also be able to receive SMS messages, just not be able to send them. But then, you could just call them back. Technically you can receive SMS messages even without a roaming plan. This is great to ensure you can continue to receive bank verification or transaction notification texts for instance.
