    Wind Pay Your Way Question

    With Pay Your Way, I realize it's a fully prepaid option. I understand the certain top ups last a certain amount of time and if you don't retop up you lose your balance.

    "Any balance left in your account at the end of your Service Life is non-refundable, and you’ll lose your phone number if you take too long to top up after it expires."

    I was looking at their FAQS, to see when I'd lose my number if I didn't retop up and all I see is if you take too long to top up you lose the number and was wondering if anyone knew how long we had until Wind closes the account and lose the number? Is it like Pay Before where the account is active for 3 months after due date before they close the account?

    EDIT: Found my answer from poster and on FAQ.

    OK perfect, thanks. I hope the unlimited incoming promo will last even if I don't top very month (if I put $10 top up for the first month).


    Does Wind give a free SIM if I want to activate on Pay Your Way?

    You sure can, however it will not extend your expiry date.

    They made Pay Your way pretty awesome with the unlimited incoming. And no Wind won't give you a free sim. You will have to buy one or buy a phone.
    Just loving it.

    Question: I have a prepaid Blackberry ($29 super smart plan) that I use primarily for texting. I thought I'd use data too, but I notice myself barely using it.

    Can I switch to the pay your way $5 unlim text + free incoming on the current phone / sim? I have about $30 balance on my existing account.

    Yes, simply call in and have it changed. Your balance will carry forward.
