I changed the plan on my account and re-charged it to top up for the following month. The system is telling me that the account has been charged there is $25 on the account, however I still cannot make any calls. Also, the system is telling me that I will be recharged the same amount ($25) on the 17th which is in two days. Why is that the case? I have already paid for a full month why am I only being given two days for the $25 that has already been paid?
@jgrewal there's two ways to change plans
1= Change now - (It will say top up now if you don't have funds to cover new plan).
2= Change at next renewal. Your new plan you pick will be scheduled to start at your next payment due
What one did you select?
You said your balance shows $25? So maybe you just added the money and did not change the plan?
Also note plans are 30 days monthly.
Are you currently on the $15 plan and are trying to change to the $25?

Hello @jgrewal ,
What does your account status say in you SELF SERVE?
Hit reactivate if it is currently suspended AND you do not have any services.
Try one or more of the below:
*rebooting your phone
*removing your SIM for a few minutes, then reinserting it
*go into airplane mode for a few minutes, then going back to regular mode
*reboot your phone again
@jgrewal You cannot renew your existing plan early by simply adding funds ($25) to your account. If you wish to renew your $25 plan early you need to submit a ticket and ask a moderator if they will do it for you.

@jgrewal changed your plan to which one? you should of topped up your account by going to the "payment" section before you changed plans
"30-days" and "1 month" aren't always the same thing.
Not much difference, but more often than not it will offset the billing date by a day (or two) when the cycle renews. Be aware of shifting payment dates over passing months.
You also don't get Rewards for interrupted billing cycles.
I am not sure about the charging option I chose. I was on a $15 plan, however, I changed to the $25 plan now. The charge of $25 did go through, and my account does reflect the charge. I still cannot call anywhere with my phone though. When I dial *611 I get the message that a charge of $25 will be applied on the 17th. Also, it does say that I do have $25 in my account and the next auto payment will be on the 17th of October.
Hello @jgrewal ,
Have you rebooted your phone?
Did you choose "Change on next renewal"?
Did you add the funds in your account for the $25 amount?
Not good if you cannot make calls right now.
Was your account suspended at one point?
No, the account charge is not applicable. I cannot call anyone from my phone. $25 was charged on my account. The credit card was charged $25. The account does show $25 on my account. However, I have not had the use of my phone since yesterday.
