Frequently Asked Questions
When will my Long Distance service be active?
Your Primus Long Distance should become active within 5-7 business days. To confirm your long distance is with Primus you can call 1-700-555-4141. This is a toll-free number maintained by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (or CRTC) that when called will repeat a recorded message informing you of the current long distance carrier for the line called.
Do I need to cancel my long distance with my current provider?
There is no need to cancel your existing long distance. Primus will do that for you.

Why do I need to provide an email address?

How are my services billed?
Fees for most services are billed one month in advance, except for long distance charges which are billed after they are incurred. Your first invoice will contain a partial fee for services incurred from your activation date to the end of your first billing period plus the service fees for your next month.

What details will my invoice include?
Your bills are monthly statements of your account activity. Your bill will show your amount due as well as the payments, refunds, discounts, credits and fees that are applied to your account during the billing period.
How will I receive my bill?
Primus offers electronic billing. If you do not have access to email we can offer paper billing.
When will I receive my next invoice?
Primus will bill you monthly around the same time each month. So, if your current invoice is dated on the 15th of the month, you will get billed next month on the 15th.
What payment options do I have?
You can pay for your Primus services in the following ways:
- At most financial institutions (online, in person or by phone)

My payments are pre authorized. Will I receive a bill?

The invoice will contain details of your services within your billing period and you will have a chance to review charges before your pre authorized payment is processed.
