@Metal1967   your statement applies to unlimited plans only, though. If you are on the $10/50min/50texts plan all incoming calls will count against your 50 minutes of included airtime.

As Metal1967 said, any plan will do.

 

For some reason people seem to think that it matters where a call comes from.  It never does, on any carrier, on any plan.   There are even some people who incorrectly swear by this and refuse to answer a call from someone calling from a different city. 

 

This is unwarranted and there's no truth to this costing the receiving person anything extra. When someone calls you, it is all the same, whether the call is from your next door neighbor, from someone on the other side of the country, or a call from the other side of an ocean.

Yes, of course that's true.  I think he was just trying to point out that that the person calling from the UK isn't a factor.

Which, essentially, equals to a charge. Not because of the location of the original caller, but because you are still using your airtime on an incoming call.
