Do you need to possibly go into self serve and purchase a talk booster (more minutes)

Hi Paul,
I have a really cheap base plan, $15 per month.  I brought my own phone so I get 10% credited back in minutes.  The plan renewed on July 13.

It says I still have a balance of $27.00 but no minutes left?  It does not really make sense to me.

Thanks for your help with this.

AFAIK the balance in your account just goes to renew your baseplan. You have to buy your boosters separately, but these can be paid for from your balance, a voucher or credit card top-up.

You base plan is like your regular car licensing fee. How much gas you want to refill your tank with is your own decision, not automatic, and is a separate issue.

Hope that analogy makes sense.
