free talk from U.S. to Canada

I snowbird in florida.  I have signed up to change to the $60 plan on my next billing cycle Sept. 19.  

I remain confused about the plan details.  It mentions Canada-U.S. talk is included, but it does not say U.S.-Canada or 'vice-versa'.

Is U.S. to Canada talk included in the $60 plan?

Simply put, with the $60 plan, does it include the following?

1.  when in the U.S.,  can I receive calls for free from canada?

2. when in the u.s., can I phone from u.s. to canada for free?

3.  or, do I need to buy u.s. add-ons to do 1 and 2 above?

how do I ask questions of a moderator?  I appreciate other customers sharing insights, but I need a definitive answer from a moderator regarding the $60 plan details.

How do I connect with a public mobile employee?

@longder1   you can call from anywhere in Canada and the US to anywhere in Canada and the US.  You can also receive calls anywhere in Canada and the US. The text will send and receive in Canada and the US. The data you will have 2gb I think it is fot use while in the US

1. Yes

2. Yes

3. No

It's not free per se...you pay for it in the total plan cost...but not extra.

In the original announcement of this plan there is lots of good info (25 pages worth and growing) including at least one response from someone who switched to it and tried it out.

Have you thought about using Whatsapp? We use this for all our US/Can calling to family and friends and the only challenge is if you need to call businesses.
