Are incoming calls "free"?

Hello,

 

I paid for the $15 plan, 100 canada-wide anytime minutes and unlimited texting, what I'm curious about and I suppose it probably applies to any of the plans PM offers is if incoming calls are free and it's only outgoing calls that count towards your minutes?

 

Thanks.

Incoming calls are counted towards the 100 minutes you are allocated each month. Therefore you are going to use up your minutes if you either receive a call or get a voicemail.

Both incoming and outgoing will use your minutes. Some texting plans are only counting outgoing, and incoming are unlimited. But for calls both count against your minutes.

Oh okay, thanks for the info.

 

I got very little minutes as I mostly just intend to use the number for texts.

Yes, incoming calls count as part as part of your 100 minutes.  Public Mobile does have plan options that include unlimited phone calls.

How about incoming calls from International ? I have an unlimited Canada-wide call plan.

It makes no difference for you where the other person calls from, as long as you are in Canada when you answer.

You can receive calls from anywhere and because you have unlimited call plan it doesn't count . Public mobile it's prepaid so any more charges.

Thanks for the info ! In other worlds, with the unlimited canada wide calling plan, I don't have to worry about incoming calls to my PM number no matter where they are originated from and outgoing calls to anywhere in Canada from my PM number. Great !
