@fiona59 Pay As You Go is the cheapest cell service if you don't use your phone a lot. I have the grandfathered Talk Anytime plan and buy a year's worth of minutes for $100. Usually, after renewing I have over $100 balance the next time, so I draw $100 from that to renew by calling the PayGo number. I don't know how you use your phone, but I only turn mine on and take it with me when I leave the house. Due to the virus, I haven't left the house in 3 weeks. So I guess you mean you want your period extended since you won't use up your balance. Can you not renew anyway and carry your balance over?
