gophone Balance, data option, balance expiration, rollover,
I am one of those gophone users currently outside the Us that wants to keep his gophone account& number active and uses the SIM every few months or so.
Last time I refilled with 100 USD to keep the account active for 1 year (plus 60 days grace period to reactivate the account/number). Current balance about 80 USD and with 2 weeks use in September down to about 50. Expires October 23rd.
a) if I want to book the data option 1 USD/100MB within 24 h will this dollar be subtracted from my gophone balance or be charged separately (so 3 USd per day with datsa instead of 2?)
b) depending on the answer to a) I will have about 50 or 20 USd in my balance by expiration of my original USD100 refill.
When I refill with another 100USD the whatever remaining balance will roll over as well, correct?
c) As i will be in the US in September it is tempting to refill in September (to avoid out of sight out of mind syndrome 😉 ). However, is it correct that e.g. a 100 USD refill on Sep 15 2015 will extend only to Sep 14 2016 i.e. will NOT be added to the latest current expiration date Oct 23. So, if the goal is to stretch as long as possible it is best to refill just in time (before 3 days of refill expiration) in our to roll over any remaining balance and to extend the usage window into the future as far as possible?
