Though I can't say for sure, it's very unlikely, being that their Voice service is provided via a flat monthly fee.

There are charges for things like directory assistance. I don't know if I've seen many instances outside of that.

Some people are real testy these days. It was a joke. I thought collect calls went away when all the pay phones disappeared.

I think pay phones disappeared quickly because the powers to be claimed they were a common tool to make drug deals. If someone would like to tell me different I am all ears.
