I have a pay as you go phone. i pay $100 for the year and I get free evenings and weekends. Do holiday days such as Remembrance day count as a free weekend day?

As far as I know they don't consider holidays as a free day.  When I had a pay as you go plan weekends were defined as 8pm Friday evening through 8am Monday morning.

At that time I also thought that a Long Weekend  Friday or Monday  should have been included as a weekend but was told the software was not set up for doing that.

As of this time, the system is not set up to recognize the holiday days such as Remembrance Day, Christmas Day, Easter etc as a weekend day or different rate period. Regular calling periods do apply based on the calling plan that you've selected.
