Queations on 100M Canada wide talk, unlimited incoming calls. Intl talk time & data add-on packs

Hi everyone,

 

Request assistance on talk time on basic plan of $15 (100 min Canada-wide talk, UL intl text & picture messaging, UL incoming calls, 250MB data with auto pay, VM and call display)

 

- Does 100 min Canada-wide talk includes calls made and received between 5pm to 7am on weekdays & 5pm on Friday to 7am on Monday on weekends?  

 

- UL incoming call means all calls received 24/7 from anywhere in the World?

 

- Does the talk time not used from 400min Intl talk time add-on get rolled over to next bill cycle? If "Y", how long I have to use all of the talk minutes.

- Does the data not used 1GB add-on get rolled over to next billing cycle. If "Y", how long I have to use all of the data.

 

Thanks in advance for all your time folks.

 

Regards,

@Punya Your 100 mins are good anytime day/night 24/7.

 

Incoming minutes from everywhere are free.

 

Your add on long distance mins last until you use them, no expiry date. Same for 1GB data add on.

It's all 24/7. You have 100 minutes outgoing Canada-wide and unlimited incoming from anywhere.

Add-ons stay on your account until consumed.

Suggested add-ons for $15 monthly plan.

 

Suggested add-ons to bullet proof the $15 plan. Both my wife and I are low users of our $15 mobile plans but the one time cost of $25 makes our plans as good as any. And of course, once set up, one will have to manage these add-ons to keep the “GOOD COMBINATION” in place and maintenance cost should be minimal.

 

The add-on combinations below do NOT expire until minutes are used up.

 

GOOD COMBINATION. More flexibility, less overall cost.

2 x $5 add-on (1 cent/min.) 500 Canada-wide Long Distance minutes

1 x $15 add-on (3.75 cent/min.) 400 International Long Distance minutes add-on this gives you full calling LD including USA, Canada and International for less cost per minute than using the $8 add-on. 

=======

$25

 

NOT SO GOOD COMBINATION.

2 x $5 add-on (1 cent/min.) 500 Canada-wide Long Distance minutes

1 x $8 add-on (4 cent/min.) 200 U.S. & Canada Long Distance minutes**

1 x $15 (3.75 cent/min.) 400 International Long Distance minutes add-on.

=======

$33 Total                   **The lesser value of the group

 

 Note the $5, $8, and $15 add-on would all kick in for Local/Canada Wide calls if your allotted minutes were all used up. This applies to the $15 monthly plan only.

 

The reason for 2 x $5 add-ons, assuming most of your calls are Canada Wide, is......once 1 x $5 is used up and you are now using the second $5 add-on ......buy another $5 add-on.

 

The $15 add-on is less cost per minute than the $8 add-on. The $15 add-on has INTERNATIONAL, USA and Canada  so, in a way, the $8 add-on is pointless to buy for USA only calls.

 

Note 1: The add ons above I have mentioned do NOT expire until all the minutes have been used. The unused minutes roll over month to month until all exhausted.

 

In certain conditions DATA can be very helpful and now the add on 1GB Data that does not expire until used up, has been permanently reduced to $15 (originally $30)

 

If you have the option to call 2 different numbers choose the 800 number, those 800 number calls do NOT deduct from your allotted outbound minutes.

 

Note 2: Rewards programs and freebies.

 

Keep in mind the value of “Rewards that’ll lower your bill”.

Freebies that may be offered as in pre Christmas 2019 for 1GB of Data and 400 International Long Distance minutes. And August 2020 some of us were offered 5GB if add on Data while others were offered 1GB of add on Data AND 1000 minutes of Canada wide calling. They treat us very well.

 

Note 3: Other ways to save money.

 

Use Wi-Fi  Zoom, FaceTime Video or Audio only, iMessage or a phone APP.

 

Use Wi-Fi based APP for outbound calls “if” it will allow you to use your PM number as the caller ID. Google Hangouts apparently does. Cost is free.

 

Zoiper used with VoIP.ms works too over Wifi but does cost your “outbound” VoIP.ms price per minute. And you can set up the caller ID as either your VoIP or PM number.

 

Forward your home or business calls to you PM phone number.

Re: Queations on 100M Canada wide talk, unlimited incoming calls. Intl talk time & data add-on p

Anything in your plan expires at the end of the month have your plan. You're 100 outgoing minutes are counted by the minute not by the second so a 5 second call or at 50 second call counts as one minute. So do calls to voicemail but you can call your own number from a different phone and press star before your message and enter your PIN number to check your messages. I just learned how to do that. Anything that's an add-on will roll over every month until you use the whole thing up. I have that $5/ 500 minutes add on and it took me eight months to use up the first one. Then it took two months to use up the second one because I had a few too many and phoned my friend in Ottowa and talked for almost 3 hours. LOL! So try not to do that and you should do okay!

@carlaspapa 

 

Canada use add ons, unused portions roll over and expire when exhausted. 

 

USA use add ons, expire as described.
