How does the first payment work?

When you first add credits to your account, some are automatically deduced for the first payment.

Here is how it is calculated:

  • First, there is a $5 setup fee (or $25 for a ported number)
  • Second, we calculate the prorata of the month to apply the monthly fee.
    • For instance, if you are adding credit on April 18th, only the twelve remaining days will be calculated:  $2.50 * 12/30 = $1.00.
    • Idem for the paid options, such as voicemail, SMS and others.

On the first day of the upcoming month, the full monthly fee will be charged. So, if your first payment is at the end of a month, don’t be surprised if you are billed twice in a short period of time.
