    If you run out of minutes and don't recharge you phone after a certain period of time, you're canceled(?). Unless things have changed, there's no penalty.

    If he's saying that you can do a recarga and that all calls will be deducted from that credit/balance without first having to buy any paqueticos, he's correct. I do it all the time.

    Yes that was what i was saying,

    2 options :

    - use your credit to buy a paquetico ( same as for internet but for unlimited calls and/or text messages, etc......,)

    - or just phone and the cost of the call will be deducted off your credit.

    Good to know! I never knew there was an option for unlimited phone calls. That could come in handy.

    No there is no unlimited calls paquetico. There used to be one, but no more, not for past year. Only way for unlimited calls are postpaid plans.

    I see that for claro there is not either..... my bad. Or only for claro to claro.
    What you can get is stuff like " 15 mn call time to US and PR for 125 pesos", etc........ cheaper than just phoning and having it deducted from credit ( yeah i know kind of useless in the age of whatsup and co..... lol ).

    Wonderful! Thanks for the explanations - it seems that maybe I was not the only one to learn something here.

    Exactly - if I don't recharge, how are they going to charge me a penalty? They don't have any contact info for me and I doubt they can hunt me down using my passport number!

    Prepaid service does not have any kind of contract, Altice only wait for you to pay 3 months, after 90 days if you do not recharge you will loose your number. (I use VIVA and they wait and keep the number 6 months in case you want back the same number, and for every 100.00 recharged give you 30 days of service). Another thing that apply for all companies is if you have service for 30 days with a Balance and after those 30 days if you do not recharge they must keep on hold the balance you had for 90 days, if you recharge before 90 days they must add your balance to the new credit you are adding, if you do not recharge before 90 days then on day 91 your credit is keep it for the phone company earnings.
