Q: How Text2Talk handles roaming charges?
A: If you are not in the neighborhood of your area code, you will pay for roaming.
It is unavoidable. It is a question of 'how much'. At Text2Talk,
we minimize the roaming charges, as well. For example, if you have a 416 number
and you are in Oakville (905) at the moment, you are in roaming.
In such case, if you place a call through Text2Talk, our system calls you from Oakville, 905.
Not from Toronto, 416. Less roaming, that might be saving of 5 dollars or more,
depending on the length of the conversation.
Q: What should I do when I pick up the call?
A: Text2Talk is sensitive to human voice. In order to connect you, it needs an human interaction.
You should say 'hi' or 'hello' (louder is better) to let the system recognize you.

A: When your account balance gets low you will receive a top up reminder text message.
