EDIT:

Travelling In Canada
When you travel in Canada on the Rogers network you will not incur roaming charges(only airtime and long distance charges as applicable).

When do I get charged long distance?

Outgoing Calling:

If you dial a number that is outside of your outgoing local calling area, then it is a long distance call. Your outgoing local calling area is determined by your physical location - the area you are in at any given moment. Your wireless number is irrelevant! Please visit http://www.rogers.com/longdistance for more information regarding outgoing local calling areas.

If you dial a number that is local to your physical location, then it is a local call.

Scenarios for Outgoing Calling
Type of call Airtime Long Distance
Making a call to a number within your Outgoing Local Calling area
(e.g., in Toronto, calling a Toronto number) √ Not Applicable
Making a call to a number outside your Outgoing Local Calling area
(e.g., in Toronto, calling a Vancouver number) √ √

Incoming Calling:

All calls that you receive while physically outside of your incoming local calling area are long distance. Your incoming local calling area is the area or geographic boundary associated with your wireless number. The number calling you is irrelevant! For more information regarding your incoming local calling area, please go to http://www.rogers.com/longdistance.

**All calls that you receive on your wireless device while you are physically within your incoming local calling area are local.

Scenarios for Incoming Calling
Type of call Airtime Long Distance
Receiving a call while within your Incoming Local Calling area √ Not Applicable
Receiving a call while outside your Incoming Local Calling area √ √

You should not be charged long distance because you are calling a local number.

Depending on your Mom's plan, she may have to pay extra.

DSgamby, your calling a windsor number it would be a local call not a long distance call. it does not matter TO YOU where your mom is located when you call her, because all the phone company sees is your dialing a windsor number from another windsor, so only local call charges will apply. Your mother will be charged IRM for receiving a call outside her LCA
