I purchased the Samsung a157 phone and chose the .10 cents a minute, as i dont make many calls. it show it as having no monthly charge. I purchased a $25 card thinking that it would last me quite awile at .10 cents a minute. Once I activated it...it shows it will expire in 90 days. From reading the plans...i thought it would just charge me .10 cent a minute when i used the phone. If the $25 expires in 90 days...it is not the plan i want. I just need a cell phone rarely. I probably dont use a cell phone more than 4 or 5 times in a 90 day span. $25 is more expensive than i had planned. I can go back to Tracfone with cost like that.
Is there a plan for someone that hardly ever uses the phone? If so, which would that be? I dont understand the 10 cent a minute and showing no monthly charge, yet if it expires in 90 days, isnt that like a monthly charge?
I'm not an expert about Prepaid plans but it seems to me the only Prepaid options so as to not have a monthly "plan" would be the 10 cents a minute or $2.00/day option, from what I just read. Here's a little info about them...
You should be able to contact Customer Care by dialing 611 and have them change your Pay As You Go "Plan"to a less costly one if you'd like. It seems, since you added the $25 card, that's why it's telling you that it will expire in 90 days.

Yep, the refill card expiration amounts are the problem. You're on the best plan for your needs. I would recommend adding $100 to your prepaid account. I know It may seem like a lot money, but you wouldn't have to worry about expiration dates for an entire year.
