After reading these responses, I believe that the $9.99 is probably a recharge but I am not sure. Recharge meaning, that you get to exhaust your 1000 free minutes for as long as it takes, 2, 3 or even 12 months.lbmofo wrote:What's "recharge?"anonymouse wrote:I currently use an alternate carrier to recharge my account every few months. With the free 500 minute plan you basically use it or lose it.
Now, is the $9.99 a recurring monthly charge, and you get a 1000 minutes? So, at the end of the month if you don't use these 1000 minutes, you lose them?
Also, at what point does the bulk rate apply?
I currently use "Pingo". You put money in the account and you get their rates. Once you exhaust the prepaid funds, you cannot call until you put some more money in the account. All this time, you get the same single (low!) rate.
This free, bulk and standard rate stuff is confusing
