Calling Canadian numbers while in Canada?

I'm a Canadian who's going to the UK for uni and I was confused as to how the roaming works. I saw a plan that said data, calls, and texting are free in Canada (among many other locations). I know that mean I can text make calls to the UK for free, but does it also mean I can call Canadian numbers while I'm there for free as well? Or does that count as international calling? The plan expires in 2 days so I'd appreciate if you guys could help me out. Thank you so much!

Hi @abhamm_ and welcome to the community.

 

You would get calls when in Canada free of charge to Canadian numbers, you would not get calls free to Canada when in UK.

 

Many thanks,

 

Lee

Re: Calling Canadian numbers while in Canada?

Thanks! I have another question. Would my Canadian friends be charged for international calling if they called my number while I was roaming in Canada? Or would it count as a local call

Hi @abhamm_

 

it would class as an international call as they would be ringing a UK number.

 

Many thanks,

Calls & texts from UK to Canada from a UK no. are International calls, not roaming, & are chargeable. You can get cheaper-than-standard International calls & texts from UK by texting CALL ABROAD to 150.
