Your Rate Plan includes your Service allotments for minutes, messages or data (Allotments), rates, coverage and other terms (Rate Plan). To the extent any term in your Rate Plan expressly conflicts with these T&Cs, the term in your Rate Plan will govern. Your Agreement applies to each line of Service, although different T&Cs may apply to different lines of Service on your account.
Please read these T&Cs carefully. These T&Cs cover important information about Chat Mobility services provided to you (Service); your authorized phone, tablet, handset, device, SIM card, data card, or other equipment or third-party device for which we provide Service (collectively Device); and any access and usage charges, taxes, fees, and other charges we bill you or that were accepted or processed through your Device (Charges). These T&Cs include information on fees for early termination (if applicable to your Rate Plan), Rate Plan changes, late payments, limitations of liability, privacy information, and resolution of disputes by arbitration instead of in court.
If you give someone your personal account validation information, they can access and manage your account. In addition, you may establish Authorized Users to manage your account.

- Make changes to your account;
- Add or remove services or features to your account;
- Receive notices and disclosures on your behalf; and
- Purchase Devices for use with our Service.
All of these activities may result in additional fees, payments due, or Charges to your account, a new minimum term for the line(s) of Service, and/or a new agreement or payment terms that will apply to the account, or to the purchase of Devices. The agreements which are made on your behalf may include Equipment Installment Plan Agreements for the purchase of Devices to use with our Service.

Your Term of Service and Early Termination Fees. Some Rate Plans are month-to-month and some Rate Plans require a Service Term. Your Term is the period of time for which you have agreed to maintain Service with us. Periods of suspension of Service do not count toward your Term. After your Term ends, you will become a month-to-month customer. Except for month-to-month customers, AN EARLY TERMINATION FEE WILL APPLY TO EACH LINE OF SERVICE IF YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN YOUR AGREED-UPON SERVICES THROUGH THE END OF YOUR TERM FOR THAT LINE OF SERVICE, OR IF WE TERMINATE YOUR SERVICE EARLY (see Section 19). THE EARLY TERMINATION FEE IS: $350 FOR SMARTPHONES OR $150 IF YOU HAVE A BASIC OR FEATURE PHONE (including any applicable taxes and fees). Some Devices require maintaining certain features or Services (e.g. a data plan) as part of your Rate Plan, and cancelling them before the end of your Term will result in an Early Termination Fee. The Early Termination Fee is part of our rates and is not a penalty. The Early Termination Fee applies only to the extent permitted by law. If you terminate your Service, your termination will be effective at the end of your current billing cycle, and you will remain responsible for all fees and Charges for your Service the remaining balance of your equipment, and usage through the end of that billing cycle. If we terminate your Service, we will determine the date of termination, and you will be responsible for all usage and Charges through the date of termination plus the remaining balance of your equipment. You can request us to port your number to another carrier, and Service for that number will be terminated when the porting is complete. If you port your number, you are responsible for all usage and Charges through the end of your current billing cycle.
- Cancellation and Returns. Service Cancellation: You can cancel a new line of Service, and if applicable, not pay an Early Termination Fee, if you cancel WITHIN 15 DAYS of activating that new line of Service (Cancellation Period). You remain responsible for all Charges incurred through the date of cancellation.

Policies Related to Pricing:

YOU WILL BE SUBJECT TO AN EARLY TERMINATION FEE IF YOU CANCEL SERVICES BEFORE THE END OF THE MINIMUM SERVICE TERM (OR IF WE TERMINATE YOUR SERVICE EARLY FOR CAUSE UNDER THE AGREEMENT). The Early Termination Fee is up to $350 or the remaining amount owed on your device or both, which is noted on your service order.
- If your service plan does not include a minimum service term or, if it does and you reach the end of the minimum service term, your service term will be “month-to-month” and will not be subject to an Early Termination Fee if you cancel your service.
- If your service term is month-to-month, Chat Mobility can change the price of your service by providing you at least one billing cycle’s notice of the change.
Maximum Monthly Data Caps
- Your service order indicates whether you are subject to a maximum monthly data cap on your service. The cap states the aggregate number of gigabytes (GB) of data that you may send and receive using the service in a single billing cycle. If your use of the services exceeds the cap in any billing cycle, you will be subject to an additional charge of .015 Kb. The amount of this charge appears on your service order.
- Chat Mobility makes current data usage information available to its customers at the end of every bill cycle. Unused data in a given billing cycle does not “roll over” to future billing cycles. Changing or Cancelling Service.a. If you cancel your service, in addition to any applicable Early Termination Fee, you must pay for your use of the service up until the end of the bill cycle. (date on which you cancelled), including charges for exceeding any data cap that applied to your account, and applicable taxes. b.

YOU MAY CANCEL THE AFFECTED LINE OF SERVICE WITHOUT AN EARLY TERMINATION FEE (if applicable) IF: (A) WE CHANGE YOUR PRICING IN A MANNER THAT MATERIALLY INCREASES YOUR RECURRING CHARGE(S) (the amount you agreed to pay for voice, data and messaging, which does not include overage, pay-per-use, optional services, taxes, Or fees); (B) WE MATERIALLY DECREASE THE SERVICE ALLOTMENTS WE AGREED TO PROVIDE TO YOU FOR YOUR RECURRING CHARGE; OR (C) WE MATERIALLY CHANGE A TERM IN THESE T&Cs OTHER THAN PRICING IN A MANNER THAT IS MATERIALLY ADVERSE TO YOU.

If you switch Rate Plans, the price-lock guarantee for your new Rate Plan will apply to you, if existing.
- Your Wireless Device & Compatibility with Other Networks. Your Chat Mobility Device may not be compatible with the network and services provided by another service provider. You may buy a Device from us or bring your own Device, but it must, as solely determined by Chat Mobility, be compatible with, and not potentially harm, our network. Some Chat Mobility features will be available only on Chat Mobility Devices purchased from us. A Chat Mobility Device is designed to be used only with Chat Mobility Service. You may be eligible to have your Chat Mobility Device reprogrammed to work with another carrier, but you must contact us to do so. If you did not purchase your Device from Chat Mobility, you may have to contact the original place of purchase for reprogramming assistance. Chat Mobility reserves the right to prevent your Device from being used on our network. At times we may remotely change software, systems, applications, features or programming on your Device without notice to you for security, safety, or network purposes. These changes will modify your Device and may affect or erase data you have stored on your Device, your Device programming, or the way you use your Device. We may offer you changes to systems, applications, features or programming remotely to your Device; you will not be able to use your Device during the installation of the changes.
- Service Availability. Coverage maps only approximate our anticipated wireless coverage area outdoors; actual Service area, coverage and quality may vary and change without notice depending on a variety of factors including network capacity, terrain and weather. Outages and interruptions in Service may occur, and speed of Service varies. You agree we are not liable for problems relating to Service availability or quality.
- Important Emergency and 9-1-1 Information and Emergency Alerts. When making a 9-1-1 call, always state the nature of your emergency and provide both your location and phone number, as the operator may not automatically receive this information. Chat Mobility is not responsible for failures to connect or complete 9-1-1 calls or if inaccurate location information is provided. 9-1-1 service may not be available or reliable and your ability to receive emergency services may be impeded.
- You agree to pay all Charges we bill you or that were accepted or processed through your Device. For disputed Charges, see Section 15. You agree to provide us with accurate and complete billing information and to report all changes within 30 days of the change. We round up any fraction of a minute to the next full minute. Unless otherwise specified in your Rate Plan, the rate for a call is determined by the time the call starts, and that rate applies to the entire call. For some products, such as Prepaid Service, each minute of a call will be billed according to the time or day applicable to that minute. You may be charged for more than one call/message when you use certain features resulting in multiple inbound or outbound calls/messages (such as call forwarding, call waiting, voicemail, conference calling, and multi-party messaging). Most usage and Charges incurred during a billing cycle will be included in your bill for that cycle. Some usage and Charges may be delayed to a later billing cycle, which may cause you to exceed Rate Plan Allotments in a later billing cycle. Unused Rate Plan Allotments expire at the end of your billing cycle. Airtime usage applies to all calls processed through your Device, including toll-free, operator-assisted, voice mail, call forwarding and calling card calls. You may be billed additional Charges or fees for certain features and services such as operator or directory assistance, data calls or transfers, messaging, internet access and applications. Data Usage and Messaging: Depending upon your Rate Plan, data usage may be rounded at the end of each data session, at the end of your billing cycle, and/or at the time you switch data plans. See www.chatmobility.com for your Rate Plan details. You will be charged for text, instant or picture messages, and email whether read or unread, sent or received, solicited or unsolicited.
- PRESERVING HIGH SPEED DATA ON UNLIMITED DATA PLANS Data on your Unlimited Plan’s line of service will automatically shift to 128 kilobits per second (128 Kbps) when you’ve exhausted your high-speed allotment of 22GB. The 128 Kbps rate will continue until the end of the bill cycle where it will be restored to its original speed. Normal applications like email or basic web browsing should perform well at this rate. However, activities such as high definition video streaming or transferring large files are better experienced at higher data speeds. To help avoid a reduction in high-speed data and reduce mobile data consumption, customer(s) may choose to connect to a secure Wi-Fi data source whenever possible.
- Roaming and International Calling. Your Device may connect to another providers network (Off-Net) even when you are within the Chat Mobility coverage area. There may be extra Charges (including long distance, tolls, data usage) and higher rates for Off-Net usage, depending on your Rate Plan, and your quality and availability of service may vary significantly. You must use your Device predominantly within the Chat Mobility owned network coverage area. If you exceed your Rate Plan or Data Plan Off-Net domestic Allotments for voice usage, data usage or messaging usage, you may be alerted and your access to service may be suspended, terminated or denied. We may also limit or terminate your Service in our discretion and without prior notice if you no longer reside in a Chat Mobility-owned network coverage area, if more than 50% of your voice and/or data usage is Off-Net and if your Off-Net usage makes it uneconomical for Chat Mobility to provide Service to you.
- Taxes, Fees, and Surcharges. Taxes and Fees. You agree to pay all taxes and fees imposed by governments or governmental entities. We may not give advance notice of changes to taxes & fees. To determine taxes & fees, we will use the street address you identified as your Place of Primary Use (PPU). If you did not identify the correct PPU, or if you provided an address (such as a PO box) that is not a recognized street address, does not identify the applicable taxing jurisdictions or does not reflect the Service area associated with your telephone number, you may be assigned a default location for tax purposes. In the event of a disputed tax jurisdiction location or with respect to any disagreement regarding the taxes and fees assessed on your bill, you must request a tax refund within 60 days of our notification to you that the tax has been assessed. Surcharges. You agree to pay all Surcharges. The components and amounts of these Charges are subject to change without notice. Surcharges include, but are not limited to, charges, costs, fees and certain taxes Chat Mobility incurs to provide Services. Examples include general and administrative fees as well as governmental-related Surcharges. Surcharges will apply whether or not you benefit from the programs, activities or services included in the Surcharge. You can find the Surcharges in either the Taxes, Fees & Surcharges or the Other Charges section of your bill.
- Payments, Administrative Fees, Deposits, and Credit Checks. If we do not receive payment in full by the due date on your bill, you may be charged, and agree to pay, a $5/month administrative fee. We may use a collection agency and you agree to pay collection agency fees. If we accept late or partial payments, we do not waive our right to collect all amounts you owe, including late fees. If your check, electronic funds transfer payment, including debit or Automated Clearing House payment, or any other payment is dishonored or returned, we may charge you $35, or the maximum amount allowed under applicable law. We may also require you to use another payment method, and/or immediately suspend or cancel your Service. We will not honor limiting notations you make on or with your checks. Late payment, non-payment or collection agency fees are liquidated damages intended to be a reasonable advance estimate of our costs resulting from late payments and non-payments by our customers; these costs are not readily ascertainable and are difficult to predict or calculate at the time that these fees are set. Deposits: Security deposits must be cash, credit card or certified funds. Chat Mobility reserves the right to apply any security deposit to any sums due from you. Funds received by Chat Mobility as a security deposit will not accrue interest. Security deposits will be held in your account until you have completed twelve-months of payments without being late or any interruptions of service for non-payment. If you successfully meet payment history requirements, the amount of your deposit will be CREDITED to your active account. Credit Checks: You authorize us to obtain information about your credit history from credit-reporting agencies at any time. You understand that a credit inquiry could adversely affect your credit rating.
