Hi Debbie! I'll run through a few Long Distance examples and you can let me know if this answers your question:
  • When receiving a call on your MTS cell phone anywhere in Manitoba, there is no Long Distance. 
  • You are local to the area you are in when making a call. For example, if you are in Calgary calling a Calgary number, there is no long distance. However if you are in Calgary and receive a call (because you are outside of Manitoba) there would be long distance charges.
  • Making and receiving calls between MTS Cell phones,  anywhere in Manitoba, there is no long distance. 
  • If you have a Winnipeg cell phone number, and travel to Brandon for example, calling a Non-MTS cell phone back in Winnipeg, there would be long distance charges. 
Hope this helps! Feel free to let me know if you have any more questions. Also, if you need some Long Distance coverage, you can always add on our Unlimited Long Distance anywhere in Canada Feature for $15/month.
