FAQs

Question

Answer

Will I keep the same plan forever? Will my plan change?

Please refer to our Terms of Service for more information about our plans.

I already purchased one of these plans. Will my plan’s price automatically change?

No, the plan price will not update automatically. To take advantage of the new price, you will need to follow the instructions outlined above in “How to get this offer” and read the “Current customer” section.

 

I chose to switch to one of these plans on my next renewal date. Will my plan’s price automatically change?

If you had requested to change your plan to one of these plans before this new pricing was announced, you will continue to pay $55 per 30 days /$165 per 90 days. The plan price will not update automatically. To take advantage of the new price, you will need to follow the instructions outlined above in “How to get this offer” and read the “Current customer” section.

I am an existing customer. What is the difference between changing my plan immediately and changing my plan on the next renewal date?

When changing your plan, you have 2 options: (1) change your plan immediately or (2) change on your next renewal date. We recommend changing your plan on your next renewal date because it allows you to use the services you have already paid for, making your money go further.

Wow, nice @Alan_K.  very rare to see providers lower their prices.  Awesome PM is looking to remain competitive in the marketplace.  Always have to make the necessary adjustments to prices and plans to increase subscriber base.  Great job.

Re: Updated pricing on select 6 GB plans

@Alan_K  Awesome news.  That might attract more of my friends to migrate over.  Another possiblity for future plans is maybe a cheaper plan to compete with the Freedoom Mobile $15 plan for unlimited text, 100 minutes and 250 MB plan (an excellent budget plan for teenagers). That plan seems be getting a lot of attention on RFD these days.

Hey I like the creative spelling, Freedoom.  A matching offer would be lava hot.  Realistically, there is a premium to be paid to be on a real network.  That said, lowering the price of the $30 talk/text/data package a bit would be a good counter measure.

Nice! 

Now I'm torn between $40/4.5GB vs $50/6.5GB....decision decision.

Re: Updated pricing on select 6 GB plans

Curious... I'm on the 6GB+500MB plan already and am already getting it for $50. Is this lowering to $45 or just staying at $50?

Great to see PM get more competitive for higher data plans on 3G. I know several people who will consider switching to PM with these lower prices.

The one you have was probably a limited time promo where as the new one seems to be a regular price from now on. There is really no changes require on your part because both plans are exactly the same. The 90 days option will give you flexibility on your data usage compare to data on 30 days.

Re: Updated pricing on select 6 GB plans

This is fantastic! Great way to attract more new customers! One comment I have on this is that I think there should be a mini incentive to sign a 90 day plan over a 30 day plan. The 90 day vs 30 day plan are technically the same price.
