I have a pay-as-you-go phone plan with automatic billing ($15/per month billed) and I hardly use my phone at all. I have unlimited voice minutes and 2cent text messages and I currently have accrued an account credit of nearly $100. I've read the FAQs and it clearly states that I cannot get that credit back. So my question is: what can I do with my credit? Am I able to apply that credit towards a new, applicable phone (one that wont require ANY change to my plan) or am I just stuck with it? I would hate to have to waste it downloading music or apps that I dont want. The FAQs say I can apply it towards my next month's usage but I am not sure if that applies to pay-as-you-go. Any help would be appreciated.
As long as you keep renewing your account every 30 days by adding the $15.00 your account will stay active and the money will be carried over up to $1,000.00 dollars. If you have had the cell for more than 6 months you can get a contract or monthly plan and you will be given credit for the money on your phone. I use the extra money for long distance calls since I do not have a long distance carrier on my landline, also if you text you can use it that way. If you put in a $30.00 prepaid card it will be good for 90 days so that would save you $15.00 every 90 days by not buying the $15.00 card every 30 days also you can buy a $100.00 card and it would be good for one year.
