    Excuse my ignorance but I need to make some calls all over the country (USA) and was wondering if there are extra charges for calling other states? I have At&T and reside in California.

    Only you know what plan you have. Wouldn't it be easier to look it up on the AT&T site?

    No I can't find it on their website and it's a family plan which I don't pay for.

    I second that and there should be no charge for long distance.

    I don't think there is a US carrier these days that charges for long distance.

    That went away many moons ago. Just don't call a non-USA number and you should be good (or a pay number like 900-sexy-talk)

    It really depends on your plan. While pretty much all today's plans don't have long distance charges, there might be some that do (perhaps some special loyalty/saver type of plans), not to mention that that there are certainly at least some older plans that might charge for long distance, and various people might be on those still.

    Seriously? I didn't know that this was a thing in the US. Yet another way that Canadian telecom companies continue to screw us.

    One day, all phone calls no matter to where in the world will be treated the same, just simple voIP calls to a server on the internet...

    All it takes is one big carrier to start the ball rolling...
