Rogers - Long Distance Data?

Hi all,


I just got my first Data Plan and Blackberry (8900 Curve) from Rogers yesterday. I was wondering if using data outside of my local calling region (i.e. Toronto) will cause "Long Distance Data" charges? Or is there no such thing?

Re: Rogers - Long Distance Data?

With the Canadian providers (including Rogers) Data roaming in Canada is free. So from Victoria to St Johns, there is no "long distance" as you put it for using data, regardless of the fact that you have a Toronto phone #.

When you travel outside of Canada, that's when you start paying Data roaming charges.
