Thank you for your help. This seems to be good. My only problem now is that my phone is not working in Canada. I have an Alcatel Idol 4 which I did get the okay that it was good. My phone worked fine in Canada but major problems since being in the States.
If you are back in Canada now and no service check your network settings..after your issues in the US its possible you changed something..
I am in the US until April
On Dec. 20th, your plan renewed. Just in time for all the seasonal calls. If people called your number then you would have consumed your 50 minutes probably pretty quickly. I'm not sure of this but even with the $10 plan, you should be able to call them. But they wouldn't be able to call you or your voicemail.
Edit: Sorry for the update/correction. But now with the 200 minute add-on they should be able to call your voicemail. But not having any roaming right now they won't be able to find you.
