will I use up my minutes if I call an 800 number?

    My friend was saying we do not use up minutes when we are on an outbound 800
    call - is this true? Work asks me to call 800 numbers, but they do not like
    to reimburse for cell phone calls.

    800 calls use minutes.

    Nope, 800 calls are treated as regular calls on a cellphone, so if you call
    during 'peak' time, you'll use up 'peak' minutes, etc.

    untrue. you use minutes calling any number, except other verizon
    users (IN plan) and verizon itself. of course this does not apply,
    depending on your plan, if you call during your free nights and
    weekends.

    submit a reimbursement request to your supervisor based on the number
    of minutes you spend on each call at the per-minute rate after your
    plan minutes have been used up. if denied get the denial in writing.
    if you itemize your taxes you may be able to deduct those costs as an
    unreimbursed employee expense.
