How does Rogers define "local call"? Is it within the same area code?
I'm wondering if I can call GTA-wide as far as Burlington, Oshawa, etc.
Any info on this?

If I paid the $120 but used the 50 talk mins and have a zero balance does it affect using the phone on evening and weekends for free?

So for those who have had this plan for a while can you please answer the following:
1. Is voicemail charge, if someone calls and leaves me a 30sec message = 1min off my 50 free??... don't understand why is so..

2. Is calling landline charged during the unlimited night/w-e?
3.is there a 911 or other monthly??
4. What is your yearly cost so far? You've put 120$ to activate and have you had to put another $xx.00 amount because of extra charges ??
5. Is there a charge for a SIM card, is there a way to get it free or credit?
6. Does it cost to port number? Isn't this standing and free?
Thx

Not if you check voicemail during your unlimited hours.

2. Is calling landline charged during the unlimited night/w-e?

Not charged

3.is there a 911 or other monthly??

No (may exist in old grandfathered plans)

4. What is your yearly cost so far? You've put 120$ to activate and have you had to put another $xx.00 amount because of extra charges ??

Depends on person and calling patterns.

5. Is there a charge for a SIM card, is there a way to get it free or credit?

There is a charge.

6. Does it cost to port number? Isn't this standing and free?

It's free

thanks for the answers, however Question 1 is not 100% clear. if someone calls during the day before 6pm, do i get charged for the voicemail? even i dont listen to it.
So just to be clear, if someone calls, leaves a message, will $ or minutes be deducted out of the 50mins a year for that message? even if i dont listen to it???

What is considered "local calls"? We go often up north in the summer and this would be my daughter's plan so I guess she can't call her friends in the evening/weekend?

She's currently on Speakout Unlimited Texting plan so I guess this is still better since includes local calling evenings and weekends?

Trying to find out what the actually local calling area in your area is like pulling teeth. I had to chat with a Rogers CSR to find out what my actual local calling area was. There is certainly no web site to offer as much. In my case, I was looking for the local calling area in Halifax, and it is the areas in the Halifax regional municipality. Was hoping it was the 902 area code, but sadly no.

No nothing gets deducted unless you listen to it during the day

I was cleaning house, and I found an old Rogers Doro prepaid phone I got for $25 at Futureshop. It came with a Rogers SIM card and a $50 activation credit. Someone on Kijiji was selling a $100 card for $60, so I activated this SIM. The $50 card was apparently expired, but was given a $50 goodwill credit, because the card has no expiry date. I got the $100 from Kijiji, so I had $150 to work with, and it cost me $60, not including the phone.

So I got the $120 plan. 2 CSR's inform me that picture messaging is included. Also $120 is all I pay, no other foolish fees. 911 fees are apparently included in the $120 cost. I will see what the bill is next month

So far I have been picture messaging like a mad man, and I still have a $30 balance. I got dinged for a text message before I activated the plan, but since I never even gave anyone my number at that point, the charge got forgiven. I never got any other strange text messages after I activated this plan, which I found interesting. I disable voice mail because I have no control of charges that come from voice mail
