Confusing chirping question
Here is my question.
I am going to be in the US. I need to be able to chirp other contractors. Some of them are canadian (thus they have Telus Mike, the canadian nextel counterpart) They will be in the US with me.
Now my question is where there be a service charge for me chirping them, for international charges? even though theyre going to be local?
If you receive a chirp inbound from a telus you will be charged international DC at approx. .10 a minute for your reply and if you initiate the same holds true..
not exactly true. (perhaps i am not understanding lol becuase i am so tired)
if he gets an internatial chirp he wont be paying any moneys besides the 1.50 unless he keeps responding within that 6 second time frame, however, if its mroe then 6 seconds and he responds then he will pay.
If they go back to Canada, or you go to Canada, you will incur the international surcharge since all or a leg of that conversation will be off the US network.
"Now my question is where there be a service charge for me chirping them, for international charges? even though theyre going to be local?"
yes, it is called international direct connect.
