True country-phone? Unlimited LD calls from mobile...

Not exactly a new idea, but it seems a new backdoor just opened...

Let's say your mobile is on a plan similar to Rogers MY5 - 5 numbers unlimited in/out. So, you have your access number listed there, when you dial it from anywhere you get a second dial tone - now from your VoIP system. From TELCO perspective you talk with a local number, while in real you can dial other end of the world for a price close to zero. No airtime counted as the access number is in those 5.

This way one can have virtually unlimited calling all over the world from any mobile. The only problem stays - you step out of your local area, and your access number isn't local anymore, and here all this fun ends.

So, I noticed Koodo's version of "5 unlimited numbers" plan allows to call them from anywhere in Canada with no LD charges. If I understood this correctly it makes your mobile a true country-phone - unlimited calling from almost anywhere in Canada to almost anywhere in Canada for about half-a-cent/min, and most other destination world-wide under 2 cents. With no airtime wasted. And yes, toll free numbers are actually free... Kinda unbelievable... I wish Rogers had such a plan for such a price...
