… from his land line and I don’t have mine set up for international roaming, can I still get the call and what is the cost to me? Just minutes or some exorbitant fee?
I am with the Verizon Friends and Family plan.
I called a customer service rep who told me that my uncle would incur his long distance fee billed by his TeleKom and I would be charged 7 cents per minute. That seems like a LOT.
Because he speaks no English, I don’t want to give him my elderly sister in law’s number. THAT would be a hell of a mess: he speaks no English and she is 80 and senile. So if he can call me direct on the cell and it only count against minutes, that would be great.
Additionally, I have an international calling card with 60 minutes left on it which I could use to call him from my cell. Again the customer service rep says it will only count against my minutes when I call the 888 number and put in my pin, but I wanted to run by the Dopers as well, just to make sure.
I HAVE been calling him from the land line belonging to my sister in law and using the phone card, but sometimes I’d like to call him when I am NOT near the land line.
