Re: Prepaid for about 1 month now

100 minutes/month.. don't worry.. Each minute over the 100/(30 days), costs only 10 cents/minute.

Just keep a little surplus in your prepaid account.. When you go over the monthly limit the appropriate amount will be automatically deducted. I usually keep 10 to 20 dollars surplus in my prepaid account.

Simple, easy.. no hassles.. It sure beats paying XXX$ a month extra for a plan with more minutes..

Suggestion, send more text messages(unlimited), instead if calling each time.

Oh, so that's the trick. I did go over my 100 minutes and it said I would be charged 10c per minute, but I could never make any calls. It's because my account balance was $0.00. I'm still getting used to prepaid systems. I assumed I'd just get a bill for how many minutes I went over 100 minutes, but it sounds like there MUST be a positive balance in the account.

If you were to get billed for it, then that would be postpaid.

Prepaid means exactly what the word says. You pay for the service before using it. This is why there are no credit checks for prepaid service -- they aren't extending you any credit at all, not even for one month.
