Considering switching from prepaid to monthly using GOMONTHLY promotion. Can I purchase a pre-paid data booster to go with this or do I get billed for data used?

hi Lara,
If you choose to go ahead with "GOMONTHLY" promotion, your plan will be switched from prepaid to monthly (postpaid). All of your existing prepaid boosters will be lost.  Postpaid plan is very different from prepaid though.

so there is no way to combine prepaid data with postpaid text and calling?

there was some discussion here about having to pay for another sim card when switching to postpaid. The suggestion was that one should go to a store to switch, to avoid the sim card fee. However, the store I went into said there's no way to avoid this. Is that the case?

There was a post somewhere in the forum, saying that the fee should be waived for your case of porting from prepaid to postpaid. The reason is: you could reuse your prepaid SIM, all they need is to put the postpaid plan into it.

And Yes, there is no way to keep the existing data and credit once you move to the new plan.
