April 2, 2010, Newsletter Issue #246: Can Prepaid Cell Phone Minutes Expire?

Tip of the Week

Whether you are using a prepaid cell phone card, or a prepaid calling plan, double check the terms of your agreement. Some prepaid minutes don't roll over to the next month or billing period. Instead, they just expire.

Many cell phones have a minute tracker, but the per-minute counts aren't always accurate. Use the tools your prepaid cell phone service offers, whether it is a customer service number or a key code option to dial on your prepaid cellular phone. You may be using additional minutes for text services, voice mail, or even for calls to check on your remaining minutes, so be sure to factor this usage into your estimated time remaining.
