Long Distance Replenishment

Budget Phone prepaid long distance service is available to subscribers of the Company's prepaid residential telephone service. Long distance may either be included as a part of specific service plans or added, for an additional monthly charge, to many of the Company's prepaid residential local service plans.

Prepaid long distance minutes are available for use within the customers billing cycle. The number of minutes available within the billing cycle is dependent upon the plan and/or the call termination point. Surcharges may be applicable on certain long distance plans. Unused minutes cannot be carried over. Minutes are automatically refreshed on the service due date to the appropriate plan level on all accounts, which have been paid in full. Long Distance is refreshed on delinquent accounts when the account balance is paid in full.

Additional details on Budget Phone's prepaid long distance service, or any of Budget Phone's prepaid residential service plans, are located in the Company's effective local service tariff on file with your state Commission.
