Minimum Cost

Could someone explain what the minimum cost for Boost pay as you go is? I get the idea that if I buy a $20 Re-Boost card, and don't use it all within 90 days that the unused portion expires. Is that right? So this would work out to $6.66 a month if I get a $20 card every 3 months.

Thanks,
Brent

Hey Brent,
Let me see if I can explain it clearly...the way you use your phone really determines the way your funds are used...
Daytime Cell (7am-9pm)is charged at .20 a minute.
BoostTime Cell (9pm-7am) is charged at .10 a minute.
Weekend Cellular(9pm Friday-7am Monday) is at .10 a minute.
WalkieTalkie is 1.50 a day. The "day" is determined by when you make your first chirp or answer an inbound chirp until Midnight of that day. You can use it unlimited for the 1.50 from 12:01am-Midnight. The 1.50 will be deducted the following day. If you have less than the 1.50 and you use the Walkie Talkie be aware it may take the rest of the funds and not give you the full 24 hour period.
Text messaging is .10 for outbound, free inbound.
If you ha...

Unused minutes do in fact roll-over. You just need to make sure and re-boost every 60 days to keep your acct active but left over minutes will roll-over.

Sorry I was not complete in my posting....Pay-As-You-Go minutes have shelf life of 90 days and if you add another card to your account with minutes already on the balance, they are extended out 90 days along with the new funds...So, yes minutes "roll-over" but only if you add more minutes to the balance, extending all to ninety days from when the current reboost card was added...clear as mud, huh?

The Boost Premium Plan has a standard 200 daytime minutes given with the 49.99 and if you still have any of those 200 left at the end of the month you will lose them and get a fresh 200 with another debit of 49.99 from your Cc or Debit card...any funds left over from your pay-as-you-go plan or that are in the Low Balance Credit will not be lost ...

OK, so then the minimum cost is $6.66 a month, $20.00 every 90 days. If I don't use all my time, I still need to spend $20.00 every 90 days.

Thanks,
Brent
