    Mostly true, however if you go over you M2M time (in network is usually

    Mostly true, however if you go over you M2M time (in network is usually
    unlimited, but M2M was not), or if the calling or called party is NOT in a
    verizon or extended area (IE either are in roaming areas), it costs.

    Louise,
    Let's look at how much advantage those of you on the east coast have with
    just the time zone. Many of us can call friends and family during our
    'free' night and weekend minutes, and you can can call the west coast as
    early as 5pm Pacific Time, more likely 6pm, and have it fall in your N&W
    time. However, those of us in the west get little advantage of that,
    especially those with a 9pm N&W start time and calling from the Pacific Time
    Zone. I feel fortunate I have an 8pm start time and I'm in the
    MountainTime Zone, but that's still a call at 10pm Eastern Time...not an
    enjoyable time.

    Therefore, WE are 'jealous of how "reasonable" and "fair" things are
    elsewhere - almost wistful.' Enjoy your advantages.

    Just get up early and call the people back East before 6:00 AM your time.

    I used to be able to call Hawaii as early as 3:00PM HST on FN&W. The
    person I knew who lived there would have been calling me at 3:00AM EDT
    if she called me when her FN&W kicked in at 9:00PM HST.
