ReBoost - How do I add airtime to my Boost Mobile Prepaid Phone?

Adding airtime (Reboost) to your Boost Prepaid Wireless Phone is easy, first you need to purchase a refill pin number - you can order online at https://www.prepaidonline.com/product_wireless.cfm?type_id=17. Within a few minutes you will receive your airtime pin number by email - once received, simply dial 611 from your Boost phone and press send then follow the voice prompts - OR - you can call 1-888-BOOST-4U (1-888-266-7848) from any phone and follow the simple voice prompts.

How Does Pin Free Dialing work on Phone Cards?

Using long distance phone cards for making international and domestic (USA) calls have for a long time proven to be much cheaper than traditional long distance plans. When you buy a calling card you are issued a pin number and an access number to place your calls. In recent years, pin free dialing has become very popular and made use of phone cards much easier because you don't have to remember those long pin numbers. There are some limitations, complete details can be found at http://www.prepaidonline.com/library/pinskip_limitations.cfm .

The way they work is simple - you can setup your phone card to work with your home phone, your office, even your cell phone and have those numbers programmed to work with your pin so that when you call FROM one of those numbers the "system" recognizes the phone number you are calling in from and matches that up with your pin number and you can then "skip" entering your pin. At Prepaidonline.com we call this feature "PinSkip". It works by capturing your caller ID from the phone you are using so you don't have to enter your pin. You can program up to 5 different phone numbers on any phone card you purchase from http://www.prepaidonline.com/ by logging into your account, or by calling customer service at 1-800-215-4922.

Tracfone - How does the Double Minutes for Life Card work?

Tracfone is the largest prepaid wireless carrier in the country with over 12 million subscribers and in order to get the best bang for your buck - you need to be a smart shopper!

The Tracfone Double Minutes for Life Card (DM4L) sells for $49.99 - you pay that one time fee and receive a 15 digit pin number which you load onto your Tracfone (if you need help, we'll do it for you free) and once that is programmed into your phone - anytime you buy more airtime - for the rest of your life - you'll automatically get double minutes. So, if you bought a $19.99 60 minute refill - you'd get 120 minutes, if you bought the 200 minute card for $39.99 that would automatically be doubled to 400 minutes, etc.

This is a good deal IF you plan on keeping your Tracfone for a long time. If you plan to be a short term user, then this may not be a good deal for you. Keep in mind that the "double minutes for life" is good only on the phone you have now. If you change phones, that "double minute" feature cannot be moved to a new Tracfone - so make sure you have a newer model before buying.

You can get more details about this product at http://www.prepaidonline.com/product_wireless.cfm?type_id=25, or call 1-800-215-4922.

Remember --> You need to be a smart shopper if you own a Tracfone - you can get really good deals if you know where to look - they always have promotions to lower your wireless costs, so ask!

Go Phones from ATT / Cingular - Which is the Best Plan?

AT&T GoPhone offers two distinct styles of prepaid service. Both plans have no annual contract, no credit check and no deposit. The AT&T GoPhone is billed at $.25 cents per minute or $.10 per minute with a $1 daily charge. Customers can choose to lower their plan to $.10 cents per minute by paying a $1 daily fee (only on days a call is placed with the phone). The $1 per day access fee also allows you to purchase the 3,000 Nights and Weekends plan for $19.99 with unlimited calling to all AT&T subscribers nationwide.

So which is the best plan for you? If you use your phone daily, then the 10 cent plan with the daily $1 fee is the best deal - if you don't use your phone frequently, then the 25 cent flat rate with no daily fee may be best.
