$10 plan

For the $10 plan which has 50 minutes of talk time, do incoming calls count toward the 50 minutes?

YES, incoming calls use up your 50 minutes of talk time.  When you run out of minutes, there will not be any additional charge (since this is a prepaid service). However, you will no longer be able to receive or make any calls.  That said, If you want to have extra minutes available in case you use up the 50 minutes, you can buy a long distance add-on ($8 for 200minutes).  The add-n minutes will only get used if you run out of your 50 minutes.  Also, the 200 minute add-on does not expire.  Whatever you do not use stays in your account until the next month, and then the next month, etc.

Unless they need US calling (which isn't included in their base plan) the $5 for 500minutes Canada wide would be better value?

@Grahamk Yes. Take a look at the $15 plan it includes unlimited incoming minutes and 100 outgoing minutes and unlimited texting.

I personally prefer the $10 plan with the $5, 500 minute addon.  I think it is better value than the $15 plan with unlimited incoming.

True only if texting is not a requirement. If texting is important then the $15 plan is preferable since a text addon does not exist.

If you essentially don't "do" outgoing texts... ;-)

Re: $10 plan

Hi 

If you go to the plans page, you will see that there isn't an unlimited incoming call row in the $10 plan (compare it against the $15+ plans which has this). So, incomming calls will be deducted from the 50 minutes you get
