Do I get charged if I answer an international call?
I have a friend living in the United Arab Emirates who wants to call me directly from his cell phone. My AT&T Motorola razor phone is part of a family/business phone plan here in the U.S.A. that is not in my name, so I never see the bill. I hae a large bucket of free minutes per month nationwde. Will it cost me anything beyond those monthly bucket of free nationwide minutes to receive a phone call directly from my friend's cell phone from the United Arab Emirates while I'm still in the U.S. with my U.S. based AT&T phone (without roaming on my part)? Is the answer the same with all AT&T wireless /cell phone plans or just certain ones? I read a post on here back from 2008 that says that all received calls in the U.S. (not roaming out of the U.S.) on AT&T phones based in the U.S. from anywhere are treated the same, but I want to make sure that this is still true in 2010. Should I ask my friend to use a prepaid calling card to avoid extra fees on my end, or would that even made a difference for me on my end? Any advice on this is greatly appreciated.
