it's one of those cheap pay as you go ones. It cost me, I think, 11 dollars. Haven't used it for about five months except as a time piece. So when I went to see what was going on with it, I noticed something about the account balance. I had no idea and did no investigating. I thought maybe it was beeping because it was out of power so I plugged it up. Turns out the carrier's giving me a free month of service.
So nice of you. Thanks. Yes, I'm going to use it until the month is up and then I'll just have a time piece;-)
