carrier, without using the allotted plan minutes.

Landline Calls. Calls to land line phones, except for nights and weekends as mentioned above, typically use allotted plan minutes.

Premium Services: Keep in mind that services like 411, Premium Text Messaging, and purchased Ring tones will add charges and are not included in any of the above plans.
