I changed from my once a year, pay as you go payment to an automatic monthly payment and lost my grandfathered rate. (.15 per min went to .50 per min)

I was not told this would happen but simply received a message after the fact, saying it was done .

How can I fix this?

I did not know the $0.15 per minute was offered with the $100 /  365 day renewal top up. It is available with just about any plan or add-on to your pre-paid plan, however, to my knowledge, the per minute rate for a pre-paid phone account without a plan or add-on is $0.50 / minute.

 

Did you have an add-on with your previous set-up?

Grandfathered rates end upon choosing a new plan. This is one of the decisions folks on some of the older post-paid plans have to wrestle with in deciding to upgrade a phone - is the benefit of the deal for the phone better than paying full price and keeping their old plan.

Depending on how many minutes you use, I'd say look through the available pre-paid plans and see if any would work. They're all $0.15/min.

My original number was at 20/mo

I got a call saying I'd be better off with pay as you go as it would be at .15

I went for it on the $100/ year and then added another number on the same account.

The second number/phone had to be at .50/$100/year. Ok, no problem.

This year I decided to go for the $10/ month on my number.(not the .15 number).

I then got a message I'd lost my .15 rate due to the change.

I also cannot see both numbers on my account now.

I'd be delighted but don't see that avail.

Best to call customer service and get it sorted out.

He was quite patient.

Glenn,

   If I recall, you need a separate email address for each pre-paid phone line. Was that your experience?
