Does this code still work? Can I use this on PTEL's Real PAYGO plan instead of their unlimited plans?

From other threads yes it will work on PAYGO plans as well, you can check if the code still works before paying, it'll show the discount in the checkout.

This is weird. I ordered a $40 top up with SIM and the envelope came today, but no $40 top up card.

I just got my first sim today. I think the top off is the activation pin #.

When I got mine, the sim was in a folded piece of paper, and top up card was the paper. Had some silver scratch off stuff to reveal the code.

Thanks guys; Rep'd. Saved me a phone call to customer service. That's kind of a weird setup...

Hi sorry if this has been asked but if I order 12x Unlimited Talk and Text 256MB Data for $20.
Can I use all the 12 months on one account?

Basically If i buy 1 year supply of the $40 Unlimited plan can I use all the 12 months on ONE SINGLE account? Do i activate all the codes at once on the account or is it after every month I activate a new code? Please someone answer
Quote from haydeno View Post :
as of now you can add pins to same account, small chance that changes but you should be good, I bought a years worth
Quote from hedwig View Post :
Thanks. did you just go ahead and add all those 11 extra pins to the account? That ties them to the account right (you can't use it on another account afterwards)?
Quote from haydeno View Post :
Once added it added and pin no longer valid
So if I place 12 separate orders of the Sim/$40 combo and use the discount to make it $20 each so I would have a full years of PINs to use when I get all 12 of them I just use need to activate 1 of the SIMs from those 12 and use that and I can then use the 12 top up cards for the same SIM/account?

When I chatted with a rep they told me I could only load up to 3 PINs at any one time so that I don't have to do it manually every 30 days so that way it will renew and I will have the top up cards in there for all 3 months and then toward end of the 3rd month I can load another 3.

How are you guys loading all 12 in one account at the same time?

I bought 6. I did not load more than one account at a time. Been doing this for the last 3 months. I top up after the one month is over (and getting a call from the wife that she can't make any calls Wink). I then top-up and its reactive in few minutes.

I dont top-up more than one because I dont ttrust their system is setup well to manage this. Once I topped up before the expiry and it reset the data limit already (it should reset the data limit after the month end). Hence, just hold on to it.

Seems like this promo is on for quite sometime. I just bought 2 more months yesterday. they ship super fast though.

But when you are doing the monthly 40/50 plans they are suppose to renew automatically as long as you already have loaded a top up card in there. That is why the rep was telling me that for the 2 monthly plans we can load up to 3 at one time so that it automatically renews after 30 days and we don't need to go in manually to do that like the paygo option where you should do it manually 1 day before expiry date so that it doesn't reset before you use you your minutes. Like if you bought a $10 one and it is good for 60 days, but if you load another one say on day 25 it will reset to 60 days from that date.

I know the rep told me that minutes should rollover in the paygo option if you have not used all of them before your expiry. So if on day 59 you only used 100 minutes of the 200 minutes of talk then when you load your next $10 you should now have 300 minutes for the next 60 days to use. Is that correct?

By the way did you port your number to Ptel or are you using the GV method? Did you port from Tmobile or some other carreir/prepaid provider?

It seems like that should work. It looks like the refill cards expire after 1 year.

I have 2.5 months of balance left for my TMobile $30 plan, and I'm tempted to buy a few PlatinumTel cards to switch to. I keep going over my minutes each month, so unlimited voice minutes would be worth it.

Just checked and find this deal still alive.

With $40/mo, no-contract "unlimited talk, text and web" plans now advertised by Tmo (w/ auto-access for voice to AT&T towers at no extra charge), bet we see this pricing become standard for Ptel.

I'm not sure which plan I want (the $40 or $50 one). Can I buy a bunch of $40 refill cards, and then switch my plan to the $50 / month after a month (and still use the $40 cards to pay)?
