Do I have a limited amount of time to use it? or is it good until I used all the data I purchased?

Hi Marianne, I assume you are talking about Prepaid boosters. They roll over until you use them. If you look at your account in self serve you will see an expiry date of something like 2045.

Sorry Marianne, just checked mine and I don't see the expiry thing anymore, must have been dropped because was meaningless.

thank you for the information, I'm currently looking to get the best options for my son's first cell phone and do not want him to loose money because he did use all his data booster before it expires...

As long as your monthly top up is kept current, the boosters last forever. Even if you miss a payment or two, you still have access to them. It's like filling your gas tank when you need it.

The bigger the booster, the cheaper per unit it is.

90 days without a base plan is the cutoff point.

Just to clarify Goran's comment: after 90 days of a prepaid account being inactive (not renewing your base plan for 90 days), you loose your entire account (balance, boosters, phone number, sim card, etc). After the 90 day point you would have to purchase another sim card and activate a new account.
