Twenty dollars per month for 500 minutes is good. That's the only thing good about these jerks. I'm on the auto refill monthly plan, but they send me a text msg anyway to tell me my acct is about to expire. Guess when they send it……MIDNIGHT!!!!

The $50 “UNLIMITED” phone and text service is simply NOT. They put a 2000-minute cap on your 30 days, and if you exceed it, they TERMINATE YOUR ACCOUNT, and tell you to buy more time. Exactly how much more than “unlimited” can you buy? I don't know how they can make an agreement to supply you with unlimited time, take your $50, and then cut you off early because you are – in their opinion – using too much time. This is legal here in the US for them to do this? Rediculous
