What are the costs/fees to call from a land line that has only local calling to long distance numbers (within U.S.A.) ??

Do you have already have Google Voice (Y/N)? y
If so, do you have a Google number (Y/N)?y

Post your question or report below (please include specific details and error messages, if applicable):
What are the costs/fees to call from a land line that has only local calling to long distance numbers (within U.S.A.) ?? i.e.- where it says call (the call button from my web browser) ...and where it says: 
"Google will call your phone and connect you for free (in the US)
Call: __________________ enter a number
Phone to ring
drop-down menu of places to call.
connect..."
Another question I have.. Is there a fee/cost from your land line provider (that only can make local calls...our phone only makes local calls...) ...... in order to make a call from a land line (that makes only local calls).....to another state, in otherwords long distance??
========================================================================
If I wanted to make calls from a land line that only makes local calls, to another state, in other words, long distance, how can I do this free??

If you don't pay for INCOMING calls on the landline, and you initiate the call using Google Voice, there's no charge.

Technically, when you 'make a call' using Google Voice, what happens is Google calls you @ the number you specify, then once you answer, Google calls the person whose number you put in. For you and for the person you're calling, it's an incoming call, which -typically- doesn't get charged for landlines.
