Unlimited calling using your unlimited incoming plan

Some of you might know this, but here goes. If you have any calling plan with unlimited incoming calls(including prepaid), then you can have unlimited outgoing calls using any call back service. There are several, but the cheapest I found for Toronto are for $10 a month including tax. So if you have a prepaid plan for $1+tax a day unlimited incoming + $10 unlimited outgoing, then you're paying $33.90+$10=$43.90 for unlimited local calling!!

Vbuzzer http://www.vbuzzer.com/callback/ $5 500 minutes $10 1000 minutes
Mobile Miser http://www.mobilemiser.com/ 1.9 cents for calls to Canada/US
MobiliMax http://www.novoticplus.com/mobilimax_en.html#mmcallback $10 unlimited
Smart Unlimited http://www.ontariophonecards.ca/cardinfo?card_id=709 $10 unlimited
Evoiphone http://www.evoiphone.com/mod.php?mod=siteinfo&id=2 $10 unlimited

GVR

NuTalk http://www.nutalk.ca/eng/products_callbackcard.htm $5 unlimited GVR
Yo-Ho Communications http://en.yohocanada.com/index.php?opt ... &Itemid=28 $10 1000 mins

It would be cheaper if you have a basic contract including unlimited incoming calls. Please feel free to post any different ones out there for Toronto and nationwide.

To clarify how it works, you call the number they give you. Then you will get a busy signal. In a couple of seconds you will receive a call from them and then you'll be able to dial out. So technically its an incoming call. The only thing is you can't call toll free numbers(my experience) but if anybody knows a card that can, please share with us. Thanks

That's pretty nifty.
1) Speed dial calling card
2) Dial phone number
3) Profit

The only problem I see with this is that if you want to call from your address book, you wont be able to? I'm assuming you'd have to dial manually.

Either way, neat! I won't be using this, but I'm sure there are RFDers out there that will find this post very useful!

That works out to $45 + $10 + ~$15 (base plan) = $70. For $75 you can get a Fido 2000 minute plan with unlimited after 5pm and unlimited texts.

Plus you don't have to deal with calling some number, memorizing/writing down the number you want to call, putting in your PIN, then putting the phone number, and waiting for a callback. Also the person you're calling won't know it was you who called.

Unless you make a lot of Canadian long-distance calls it's not worth it. Even then you could just pay $20 more for unlimited long distance and avoid the headache above. Good idea in theory.

I'm pretty sure the general idea is to use it with a cheap ($15-$20) plan with unlimited incoming, as opposed to regular $45 range plans.

You do have to know what number to dial, but hey if people play Sudoku for memory, why not try to remember some numbers to save $$$$$$. Plus your cell phone bill would be a flat rate(unless you text and stuff) so its good for piece of mind instead of dreading next month's bill or waiting for evening and weekends to kick in. Basically you free yourself of feeling guilty for using your cell phone whenever you want for an unlimited amount of time.

It's $45 for this unlimited calling shenanigans alone. Add in $15 for your base cellphone plan and $10 for unlimited incoming.

You only put the pin in once a month and your number always shows up on their caller id. Your number will be saved in their system for 30 days. Also this works when you get a no frills plan with unlimited incoming not an expensive plan.

Not true. My first post says that you can get a pay as you go account for $1 a day for unlimited incoming. So thats $30+tax=$33.90. Add an additional $10 then its $43.90. Remember, with prepaid accounts, there's no monthly access fees and all those stupid fees. Its only pst and gst. I know there's cheap contracts for unlimited incoming, but haven't been on a contract for years.

you can still use your address book
depends on how smart you are and how smart your phone is.

my v3c will "send tones" when I select an address book contact after receiving a call from Yak Incoming which I use for long distance.

How is Yak incoming? Is it unlimited? I found another company Mobile Miser http://www.mobilemiser.com/ but its not unlimited incoming but 1.9 cents to anywhere in the world.
