Hey @chjerry27

Did you see if the balance was deducted to pay for your plan? 
If your plan isn't deducted yet, you will be billed pay per use.
Let me know!

Hi @FidoAlyson, I did see my balance increased by $100 after refill; thus, I assume the new plan should be in effect.  And after I send a test text message, I still see $0.30 being deducted.

Your plan is deducted from your balance once a year. 

Was the $100 removed from your balance to pay for it yet?

Hmm, this is the re-fill type pre-paid (not one that gets fix amount deducted regardless.)  So, I pay $100 for a year upfront, and the $100 get deducted per usage.  At the end of year, there could still be some residual that I can carry over if I top up the account again.

I'll go ahead a send you a PM to clarify what you have on file Smiley
