i live in montreal and i chose the canada coverage plan, and i have unlimited minutes. when i call to saguenay lac st-jean (which is in quebec, i also checked on fizz and the coverage covers that area), it tells me "you've dialed a long distance number"

does it mean that I'll need to pay for that call even if it's under the plan? or it's just informing me that i'm calling outside of where i reside?

    Hello @hellomiche, I hear the same message often, I suspect it is because the 'system' is expecting a '1' in front of the other numbers. It is annoying but the call still goes through and there will not be any additional charges.
