You are solely responsible for managing your PrePay account by maintaining a positive balance and ensuring notification settings are correct.

You should monitor your account status on a regular basis, especially during periods of higher usage that may result from extreme weather, holidays, lifestyle or equipment changes.

You can pay any amount as long as a positive balance is maintained.

A PrePay account is subject to disconnection anytime the account does not have a positive balance. If a PrePay account is disconnected, you must pay your total negative balance plus $25 to reactivate service. This additional $25 becomes a credit on you account.

Reconnection of service typically occurs within an hour once sufficient payment has been applied to the account.
