Plan & Billing Cycle
Take a look at the Plan & billing cycle line graph to see where your usage falls each day of the current month, based on what your plan allows.
The graph will display three parameters:
- Plan limit - shown in orange, hover anywhere over this line to show you the number of minutes included in your plan. Note that if you are the Economy plan, this will be set to zero.
- Cost effective to - shown in green, this is the number of minutes that you will need to fall under for your current rate plan to be cost-effective. Hover anywhere over the line to show you the usage threshold for your plan. Once you hit that line, you would save money by upgrading to a higher plan.
- Current month's usage - each day, the blue line will show you the total usage on your line for the month, calculated as of 11:59 PM PST the night before.
Accessing & Choosing Your Rate Plan
If your usage falls within your selected rate plan, you'll see the Hooray! message in green on the right.
Under Choose your plan, you'll see all available SAS rate plans. Your current plan will be indicated by a green outline along with the word Subscribed.
