[edit] Acknowledgments

  • Flat-Rates are calculated by seconds.
  • Every month, the minutes available under Flat-Rates plans are reset to the initial value, which allows the client to use the same amount of minutes each new month. The clients' unused minutes for the previous month are lost.
  • When option No Expiration at the end of a Month is checked, Flat-Rates plans become one time Subscriptions and in the end of month minutes of Subscription will not be reset to the initial value. User can continue using his initially assigned minutes until all minutes will be finished. Note that subscription still becomes inactive after 'Activation end' date.
  • A Service is applicable for a whole month - that is, the service cannot start/end in the middle in the month.
  • User can have more than one Flat-Rate in this case will be used not expired Flat-Rate.
  • Billsec show time billed without Flat-Rate. Real Billsec show time billed together with Flat-Rate.
  • IMPORTANT: If a user is PREPAID, limit his calls to 1, because otherwise a loss is possible. (Explanation: calls will not be cut when Flat-Minutes will run out and small loss is possible till all Flat-Rate based calls will finish. After that no more calls will be possible)
