I purchased a MyFi Jetpack on a pre-pay plan to use on my boat during summers. I do not plan to use it again until next May or June.
Question #1: Is it true that Verizon can close my account (unilaterally) and confiscate my unused account balance (without warning) after a period of no usage (like 3 months)? An agent in a corporation store told me that.
Question #2: What is the link to the web page that describes the terms and conditions for a pre-pay, data device?

Thanks for he response.
I currently am near the end of a $90 month. I have $20.10 in the escrow account which is not yet applied to buy data. Later this year, I may apply $15 to the device for a one week package if I need connectivity for a particular church meeting.
Otherwise, I will add another $100 to my account next May while I still have access to a land line. (It is very difficult to move money from my credit card to the escrow account from a Verizon cell phone.) I then would apply a $90 package to the device the day before I leave for vacation.
My questions: If I do nothing until next May, will my $20.10 still be there? Is there a policy for terminating inactive accounts?
Adding a payment of $100+ will allow your account to remain active for exactly 1 year from the day the payment was made. If you don't make another payment before the 1 year is up, the account would expire and any remaining balance would be lost. Making another payment will keep it active. $15.00 - $29.99 = 1 month $30.00 - $74.99 = 3 months $75.00 - 99.99 = 6 months and $100+ = 1 year. Hope that helps
Thanks for the info. Does that apply to a pre-pay jetpack? I know what you said is true for phones.
Also, I am unclear if you mean applying the $100 to the escrow account or to the device. I can only add a maximum of $90 to the device. I also know that applying $90 to the device expires in 30 days not 6 months as you suggested. Try the link in the Verizon tech support reply above.
By "expire off the account" do you mean that I have 180 days to use the 10 Gig or do you mean that the account will be closed in 180 days?
