Re: cell phone rates?
said by Bogtrotter23:I have x number of minutes per month and unlimited evenings and weekends so it will just use up those minutes - the same as any other calls.
On the value route in Canada, callback will cost 0.5 cents per minute for the call from voip to, in this case, your cell phone + 0.5 cents per minute to your call to Canada. Rates differ to other countries. Essentially, you can get long distance calling within Canada on your cell phone for a mere 1 cent per minute. Compare that to the direct-dialing cost of **40 cents** per minute with Bell Mobility right now.
Unless I have things mixed up, and I hope I do, in North America you pay the cell phone rate for incoming calls. So you will pay voip.ms 1 cent per minute for the two-way connection, but you will pay the cell phone company whatever they charge for an incoming call. For my cell phone, for example, it is 25 cents/minute.
I have a prepaid cellphone with telus. It cost $8.33 per month. Then, I added the option unlimitted calls with 1 number for 7$, which is my voip.ms number. So every call I do or receive go to my ATA, and automatically foward to my cellphone. So i have an unlimitted cellphone everytime, every moment of the day for $15 per month, + voip.ms fees, which, in my case, cost $3-$4 at a $0.01 rate per minute.
