Thanks a Smiley Surprisedlot your solutions woke me up to the fact that I didn't check the area codes to closely before entering entering them into my phone.


So, out of curiosity, were you also transposing digits, when calling the intended ON number, like you did with the intended BC number(205 vs. 250)?

Just so everyone is clear, the cross canada calling plans give you calls to all of Canada with a few exceptions so you should not have to have an addon to call . If you are trying to call the US as the op was (in error) it will be a long distance call with added charges

 


Hi what exceptions are there from calling within Canada?

I thought there were a few area codes that were not covered by the cross Canada plans but I am not sure which ones.

Re: Long distance

@woodrow1 , I am on the west coast, and we have so many different area codes, it isn't funny anymore. Besides the standard 604, 250, we also have 778, 236, and 672!

 

Just remember to dial it as 1-604-555-5555.

Granted, Ontario has more than us though!

Not secret. Is on PM website. Apparently these area codes have higher charges to call into them.

Not "Area Codes" but Exchanges within Area Codes. Or NPA-NXX.
