    Thanks! I figured out the SAF minutes later.

    As for the MVNO, it goes to show how much profit / mark-up over cost there is in the business when you can afford to have extra middle men in the form of 7-Eleven, etc.

    Rogers Pay-Go charges me for incoming text messages (or at least tries to till I call them), yet they provide a service to someone like 7-Eleven where incoming text messages are free. Go figure!

    I have just activated the value plan $20 - 100 Talk Mins + SMS . In addition, it says that it has FREE Canada Long Distance | Unlimited Canada/US Text | Free US Text | FREE Voicemail.
    Free long distance in that case just long distance call from my local area or Canadian roaming as well?
    Thanks!

    Yeah , but Rogers does not own SpeakOut - its owned by Ztar company. Rogers just provides network access for 7 eleven
