Re: "cutting the cord" on a postpaid wireless carrier
said by SCADAGeo:No, 365 days.
That's a better value than T-Mobile's $100 for 1,000 minutes per year.
Do unused minutes roll over to the next year?
There's also a trivial service fee of 50 cents a month, so for the year it's actually $ 86 for the 2000 minutes.
PagePlus has lower value cards which are (such as $ 10 or $20) which cost more per minute, and which are good for 120 days.
They [do] also have data plans at pretty good rates. Again, it is advantageous to use a Page Plus dealer like Kitty, they often have options not offered by the company itself. And again, it's riding on the Verizon Wireless network.
As an additional data point for PagePlus, I use a smartphone (Palm Pixi +) with data disabled on my account to eliminate data charges. I have all the goodies for free when Wi-Fi is available.
As an additional data point for no paid carrier, I use an Optimus T (I think an Optimus V or S would also work) without an account (911 still works). When Wi-Fi is available I have full internet connectivity along with Google Voice via GrooVe IP.
