PC Mobile Prepaid - Question - Unused Pre paid Balance

They have ANYTIME plans where a $ 100 Top Up Voucher validity is for 365 days.

Does the unused balance carry forward, if you put $ 100 more before the 365 days expire and extend it for 365 days more ? i.e everytime you increase the validity with more top ups, will the previous unused balance get added on & carry forward. TIA.

What do they mean by local calling? Maybe I missed it on their website.

Instead of asking strangers on a public forum on what the answer is, for many reasons it's best that you should contact PC Mobile directly instead. Electric Light Bulb

Yes. http://www.pcmobile.ca/prepaid_topup.jsp " Top up before your current account credit balance expires and it will carry forward." Most pre-paid accounts work that way.
Amerifriend threads need to include instructions on how to acquire an amerifriend. :confused:

That's what the used to do (carry forward leftover balances as long as you renew before expiry) but now that Rogers has put a cap on the balance, I am sure other carries will follow suit .. if they have not already.

How much is the Rogers cap? I usually top up on PC Mobile when my balance gets below $50, and I use a $100 top-up, so it's routine to have a balance that is at or just under $150.

It was $150 according to the initial executive order . I haven't seen any updates so I assume it's still at $150.

20 cents per minute to call within your area code. Everything else is long distance at a cost of 40 cents per minute

Just say for example;

- You currently have a balance of $25, with an expiry date of June 21, 2018.
- If you added a $100 Top Up Voucher to your account today (February 9th, 2018), you would now have a balance of $125, with a new expiry date of February 9th, 2019.
