  • the avg ld rate is .10/min= $6/hour x 25hr=150. I would have her pay it and then I would get and LD block on my phone

  • Call the phone company. They can tell you.

    I have a Verizon bundle that gives me nationwide long distance for free. Maybe you have something like that?

  • she wouldnt be using the phone for a long time. i know that and gdiamante. your long distance is not free. i used to work for MCI and it absolutely drove me nuts when someone said oh i have free long distance. a normal phone bill with no long distance just basic service is like 25.00 a month your total bill is probably around 60 or 70 a month which means you are paying for long distance it maybe unlimited but you still pay a month to have it.

  • call Cox and check on your service plan...I work for Comcast and we have two different plans for long distance. 1 is unlimited long distance (US, Canada, Puerto Rico) those call are free. The second on is $0.5 a min. I would assume that Cox has a similar plan.

  • DD should be responsible to pay for her own calls on your phone bill. Give her a copy of the bill and tell her she will have to pay it. Hang tough, Mom!

  • call the cable company or get online and check the acct

  • She'd be responsible for the portion of the bill she ran up, and I'd have long-distance removed from my phone features.

    Not only that, she'd be on phone restriction. For a looooonnnnggggg time. All she'd get from me for the next 3 months is two cans and a string.
