If you have kids in the city, can you have a teen line added to your residential line in the country (Morden area) that has a Winnipeg number so the kid can call the local while in the city and the parents can pay the long distance from the teen line on their phone bill long distance plan?
No one seems to know anything about this. If you can get a virtual number now, why can't that virtual number be applied to a teen line? We're still paying the long distance fees..... How would it be any different than the parent having to call all the time????

Unfortunately Teen ring numbers must be the same exchange as the primary number, so if a Teen ring is added to the Morden area phone service, it would have a Morden phone number. 
there are other ways we could set this up for you, however they would be more expensive, such as by using Call Forwarding Fix, however this requires a Winnipeg Phone service to be setup, plus the calling feature, with a long distance plan.

Another option could be having the kids get a Cell phone and the billing can be sent to the Morden address, we can put the Cell in your name, and Bundle it to possibly save even more (as Teen rings and additional Home phone lines don't increase the Bundle).
