When traveling to the U.S., if we choose not to purchase a plan, we will be charged $5/20mb data, $5/100 texts, and $1.50/minute talk.  The talk part is easy, but when do the other two expire?  Say I send a text on day one and on day two, will I be charged $5 for each day?  Does it expire in 3 days, 7 days, a month before a new charge would apply?

Hi David,

I believe it would expire at the end of your billing cycle.

Is the 'expires at end of your billing cycle' correct?

Yes, say you get the $5/100 texts. It expires when you either reach 100 texts or the end of your billing cycle.
