Plan Restart


What is the Plan Restart option?

The Plan Restart option allows you to restart your monthly plan and your plan's recurring add-on services before the end of your current month of service. This option is useful when you have consumed all of your plan’s data allotment. By restarting your plan early, you will be required to pay your total monthly payment amount and you will be assigned a new monthly payment date. Restarting your plan allows you the benefit of resetting any service that has been depleted or throttled prior to the end of your monthly payment date.

Note: A Plan Restart will also cause you to lose any unused service allotments remaining in your current month (i.e., minutes, data, etc.)


Do I have to pay the total monthly payment amount to restart my plan?

Yes, to restart your plan, the total payment amount (cost of plan and add-ons, if any) must be paid in order to reset all of your monthly services and add-ons that are not paid independent of your monthly plan. Restarting your plan will change your payment date.


If I have data or international minutes left from my current month, will they roll over to my next month when I restart my plan?

No. If a plan restart is selected then any remaining allotment of services from the current month will not carry over into the next month.
