Local Calls

How can I find out what are local calls for my area?

Re: Local Calls

If you have Comcast Digital Voice, then all of the USA and Canada are "local calls."

Re: Local Calls

They also have a level where you pay $24.95 a month and then $.05 a minute for long distance. Thus I need to know what calls are local from my home phone.

Re: Local Calls

Then you'll need to call your local Comcast office.  You may have to look it up in the phone book.  I looked on my bill and they have the local office address and hours of operation, but not the phone number.

Re: Local Calls

Calls within the U.S will be domestic and calls to Canada and U.S properties will be billed at .05/min

Re: Local Calls

as well as all long distance calls. But the question is, how do I find out what is considered long distance from my home phone.

Re: Local Calls

Then try calling 1-800-COMCAST.  It is only a guess for me since I have the full CDV package (and all calls to Canada and the US are included), but you will probably pay $0.05 per minute for any call outside your area code.

Re: Local Calls

Long distance is calling outside of the US. (IE: Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, USVI) and being billed at .05/min.
 
Local calls are within the US.

Re: Local Calls

The OP has the "Local with More" calling plan.  See the FAQ here.

* 5 cents/minute for in-state and out of state long distance

It is $15 cheaper than the regular CDV plan, which is worth it if you make less than 5 hours of long distance calls a month.  And voicemail is an additional $4 per month with this plan.  If you need voicemail, then the breakeven point is about 3.7 hours of long distance calls per month 

The only problem is the OP is having difficulty finding out what is "in-state and out of state long distance."

I doubt it: "Local calling information is valid for incumbent carriers only unless otherwise stated." Comcast is not an incumbent carrier.

Re: Local Calls

Is it correct to say local calls is defined as all calls iwithin the United States?
