At PureTalk, you have one monthly payment date for all lines on your account, even if you add a line during a monthly billing cycle. When adding a line, you are required to prepay for the monthly plan. PureTalk will then prorate the monthly plan and a credit will appear on your bill.

What should I do if my phone has been lost or stolen?
If your phone is lost or stolen, and you think you may find your phone, you can choose to suspend your line temporarily. Suspending your line means your phone will not be able to make calls or text. However, while suspended, you are still responsible for your monthly payment. If you believe you will not find your phone, we suggest to go ahead and purchase a new device, so we may port your number over to your new device. NOTE: our system only allows the line to be suspended until your next bill date. If you reach your next bill date, your line will automatically be unsuspended.
Do I have to cancel my old plan before starting one with PureTalk?
No, please keep your current service active. We want to make sure you have continuous coverage until your PureTalk activation has been completed. Additionally, if you are porting your number, your account will be required to remain open to transfer the number over.
Why can't I simply close my account online without having to call?
To protect your security and privacy, all cancellations must take place over the phone.
