Presumably you can do all this on 611 on the cell phone when you get service again.

Re: No cell service at home. Is there a way to create an account using email?

@armstrong123  You should weigh your options before you choose to purchase the data add ons and what kind of usage you need.

  1. The $15 plan has free incoming calling and 100 outgoing minutes. By call forwarding to your home number you will be using outgoing minutes for incoming calls.
  2. You can purchase the $5/500 min calling add on that will roll over each month until completely used and will ensure you won't miss a call if you use all your outgoing minutes when call forwarding.
  3. How many outgoing minutes have you used already halfway thru your plan? You have used most of your data. Adding both of these would increase your 30 day cost to $30.
  4. Changing to the $25 plan gives you unlimited calling and 1gb of data. You could change now (immediately) and use it for the next 30 days or change on next renewal (in two weeks.)
  5. Changing on next renewal means you will still need the $10/200mb add on making the 30 day plan at least $25.
  6. Changing your plan immediately once you run out of plan data to the $25 is probably the most economical choice as it more than doubles your data and gives you unlimited minutes for the same price as the add on and the $15 plan.

@AE_Collector  suggestions make the most sense and if you really don't need the additional minutes and data and want to save $10 on your service you can schedule it to change on the next renewal back to the $15 plan.

Conditional call forwarding doesn't consume minutes. The call forward all does (at least for the $10 plan). @Nezgar might have something to say about the $15 plan.

@darlicious @z10user4 On the current $15 plan, all types of call forwarding (conditional or unconditional) do not consume minutes. I've personally tested this. It's a great plan while I'm stuck at home with access to other lines for outgoing calls.

 

I can't directly speak for the "older" $10 or $15 plan, but it would make sense for conditional forwards to NOT consume minutes to support sending incoming calls to voicemail. You can work with that by setting conditional call forwards to alternate numbers instead of using unconditional forwarding.

 

Factoid: Lucky mobile does not support modifying any of the call forward settings. +1 for Public Mobile!
