@atong Yes, you can get the 1GB add-on and it will not expire until you use all 1GB of data.

@atong

Just throwing in there that if you decide not to choose the text function incoming texts are also disabled, not just outgoing. (exept service notices from Public Mobile)

 

And, on a related note (I'm aware that it's not applicable to your scenario right now...): If you'd go for a talk & data combo adding text is often the same price or even cheaper. Play with the plan builder.

How about a text add-on like the data add-on? Would make the $10 talk and text so much more usable and prevent texting being lost after 50 of them.

@Horemansuk, currently not available, but yes, it would enhance the ability of the $10 plan.  I personally don't like the $10 plan, as it's very limited on the number of SMS, and as I use two-factor authentication a lot, I'd be running out.

 

However, as I lost my daily driver for a day a month ago, the $10 is looking like an emergency back-up for me.

I don't think the $10 plan gets nearly the respect it deserves.

You keep your required monthly cost down (thank you again will13am). You can buy add-ons for minutes and data. And with the Rewards here...can you say free cell phone service? I know I can.

I would say that it can serve a couple needs: 1. low phone use, 2. emergency phone. They have subtle differences. I fall into 1.

@stonechucker incoming texts on the $10 plan are unlimited, so you can get as many 2FA messages as you desire.  (Though frankly, Google Authenticator is far better, but SMS 2FA is better than nothing.)

Re: add ons

Still,

I can buy extra minutes, international minutes at thay,

I can buy data, not cheap, but for low usage the $30 for 1GB is fine,

But I can not buy extra texts

 

Any idea why?

 

I can not do that

Can not text past 50

But I can call on an on,

buy extra minutes

And surf for 1GB, again and again

but no you can not text 

only 50 then you can not!

Does anyone know that?
