Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully. Your agreement with Cellular One includes these Terms and Conditions ("T&Cs"), your Service Agreement, applicable supplemental terms and conditions, which are available at www.cellularoneonline.com (collectively "Agreement"). These Terms and Conditions are a legally binding agreement between you and Cellular One. They contain important information about your legal rights, and require that certain disputes be resolved through arbitration instead of a court trial. Cellular One reserves the right to change or modify any of these Terms and Conditions at any time and at its sole discretion. Any changes or modifications to these Terms and Conditions of Service will be binding upon you once posted on the Cellular One website found at www.Cellularoneonline.com. By purchasing or activating your Cellular One FlexFone or using any Cellular One service (“Service”), customer (“You”) acknowledges and agrees to the following terms and conditions:
Before you can use your Cellular One FlexFone, it must be activated through a Cellular One authorized agent, application, online web store, or a Cellular One store location. You must accept the Cellular One telephone number assigned to your Cellular One FlexFone at the time of activation, however, you will acquire no proprietary interest in any number assigned to you. Your Cellular One FlexFone can only be used through Cellular One, and cannot be activated with any other wireless or cellular service, but can be used to send and receive wireless radio signals of other carriers, both wireless and landline (i.e., voice, text, data) but subject to certain terms and conditions contained herein. Cellular One FlexFone services are provided at Cellular One’s discretion. Some functions and features referenced in the manufacturer’s manual provided with your Cellular One handset may not be available on your Cellular One FlexFone. Cellular One may modify or cancel any service or take corrective action at any time without prior notice and for any reason, including but not limited to your violation of this agreement.
Your Cellular One Prepaid FlexFone will only operate when you have a positive monetary balance, or have subscribed to a product or promotion that allows zero or free rated services on your account to use for services, such as minutes, text (SMS), mobile web access, and MMS. All services you use are chargeable per minute or unit, text, web access, SMS and MMS. Rates or unit deductions may vary depending on physical calling or usage location of all parties; minutes for off-net and roaming are at a higher rate than on-net minutes. Upon activation you may receive a special offer that offers promotional pricing for all services available on your Cellular One FlexFone; see promotional flyer for special pricing if applicable. Current rates can be found on our website at cellularoneonlineaz.com and are subject to change from time to time.
The rates without a subscribed product or promotion to send or receive a text (SMS) message to another person’s phone using your Cellular One FlexFone are $0.20 per text sent and received. If you do not want your money balance reduced from your Cellular One FlexFone, then do not send a text message and/or do not open any incoming text messages if you have not purchased an additional product or promotion that includes zero or free rated text (SMS) units.
Please note that Cellular One does not generally participate in Premium SMS services or campaigns. Premium SMS refers to activities that usually involve sending a text message to a designated "short code" or buying or attempting to buy SMS services from anyone other than Cellular One. Premium SMS campaigns include activities such as casting a vote, expressing your opinion, playing a game, subscribing to a service, or interactive television programs. You should not attempt to participate in Premium SMS campaigns, unless it is a Cellular One authorized campaign. Any text message you send to a "short code" in all likelihood will not succeed in sending or receiving. Any charges you may incur as a result of any attempts to participate in Premium PSMS services or campaigns (not authorized by Cellular One), whether you incur charges as deductions from your CELLULAR ONE handset or from your credit card, are not refundable. You may purchase from Cellular One ring tones, graphics and certain information services and utilize multi-media services with certain CELLULAR ONE models. See Cellular On Data Services below.
You may now use your Cellular One FlexFone to make international calls to landlines (including some cellular phones in some countries) at an additional charge (See www.cellularoneonline.com for available countries and details). The available countries are subject to change without prior notice. A MONETARY CREDIT BALANCE IS REQUIRED for international calls AND THE PER MINUTE RATE begins the moment the International Long Distance ("ILD") access number is dialed and apply to dropped calls, misdialed numbers and busy destination numbers. When making international calls, you may experience connection failures more frequently than calls made within the United States. Cellular One will not credit airtime minutes deducted for unsuccessful calls. You will not be able to make or receive calls on your Cellular One FlexFone when you are located outside of the United States. Customers making our receiving international calls should be aware that international roaming charges can be exceptionally high. Particular rates for particular countries can be found at www.cellularoneonline.com/plans, Customer Care, or any of our retail store locations
Your Cellular One FlexFone will only operate when you have a subscribed product or promotion that allows certain amounts, or zero or free rated minutes, or units or you have a positive monetary balance available on the Cellular One FlexFone handset. You may add a monetary balance by visiting a store location, calling *123 from your handset, visiting an e-pay location, visiting a Cellular One store location, contacting Customer Care, or at our website at www.cellularoneonline.com.
From time to time, Cellular One may offer its customers and option to subscribe or avail of various airtime products or promotions or “Value Plans.” Cellular One’s current Value Plans are described on Cellular One’s website at www.cellularoneonline.com. You may purchase a Value Plan by registering your Cellular One FlexFone number and credit card at www.cellularoneonline.com. Cellular One may modify its Value Plan offerings at any time. In the event of any modification that increases the charges associated with your Value Plan, you will receive 30-days-notice prior to being charged the new rate.
If you do not have a chargeable event which is defined as any usage, i.e., voice, text, data, content, recharge or bundles purchased within 90 days of the last chargeable event your account will be disconnected and any money balance on the account will be forfeited. Your phone number will be held in a reserved status for an additional 90 days but there is no guarantee that you will receive the same phone number if you attempt to restart FlexFone services between day 91 and 180. After 180 days of inactivity your “reserved” phone number will b\d\.\s.e open to Cellular One for redistribution.
Airtime minutes will be deducted for all time during which your Cellular One FlexFone is connected to, or using, the wireless system of Cellular One or any other carrier. Use of a wireless system typically begins when you press the "send", "call" or other button to initiate or answer a call and does not end until you press the "end" button or the call is otherwise terminated. Airtime minutes are deducted for all incoming and outgoing calls, including calls to toll free numbers, 411, 611, Customer Care, simultaneous calls (airtime minutes will be deducted for each call separately) and calls to access your voice mail unless otherwise prohibited by Cellular One. Airtime minutes are not deducted for calls to 911. For outbound calls, you may be charged airtime for incomplete and/or busy-no answer calls. Airtime minutes are deducted in full MINUTE increments; partial minutes are rounded up to the next minute.
If you are in an area where your Cellular One FlexFone is searching for a wireless signal or there is no wireless signal or wireless service, it is highly probable that a call to 911 will not go through. Do not rely solely on your Cellular One FlexFone in an emergency situation. In an emergency, locate the nearest means of communication to contact emergency services.
The Cellular One FlexFone handset is sold exclusively for use by you, the end consumer, with the Cellular One FlexFone prepaid wireless Service available solely in the United States.

You agree not to unlock, reflash, tamper with or alter your Cellular One FlexFone or its software, enter unauthorized PIN numbers, engage in any other unauthorized or illegal use of your Cellular One FlexFone or the Service, or assist others in such acts, or to sell and/or export Cellular One FlexFone handsets outside of the United States. These acts violate Cellular One’s rights and state and federal laws. Improper, illegal or unauthorized use of your Cellular One FlexFone is a violation of this agreement and may result in immediate discontinuation of Service and legal action. Cellular One will prosecute violators to the full extent of the law. You agree that any violation of this agreement through your improper, illegal or unauthorized use or sale of your Cellular One FlexFone shall entitle Cellular One to recover liquidated damages from you in an amount not less than $2,500 per Cellular One handset purchased, sold, acquired or used in violation of this agreement.

Customers may not remove SIM Cards from their phones nor place them in any other phone. Doing so could subject you to immediate termination of service without any right to a refund for the phone or airtime purchased. Cellular One may, from time to time, remotely update or change the encoded information on your SIM card. Your Cellular One FlexFone is restricted from operating when you are located anywhere outside of the United States. Any such usage is considered unauthorized usage by Cellular One for which your service will be immediately suspended. In the event of suspension for this or any other unauthorized usage, you will not be entitled to receive any refunds for your handset or unused airtime.
You will find coverage maps on our website, www.cellularoneonline.com. These maps are for general informational purposes only. However, Cellular One does not guarantee coverage, service availability or the rate charged for any particular call. Even within a coverage area, factors such as terrain, weather, structures, foliage, signal strength, traffic volumes, service outages, network changes, technical limitations, and your equipment may interfere with actual service, quality and availability. Thus, it is possible your phone will roam even in the area depicted as your home calling area. Actual coverage and service areas may vary from the maps and may change without notice.
“Roaming” is one Cellular One customer placing or receiving a voice/SMS/or data call or connection request outside the Cellular One Home Network Area. Roaming charges could include but are not limited to: charges for calls that are busy or unanswered, daily fees, taxes, and other charges. Roaming charges in foreign countries (“International Roaming”) may be especially high. "Roaming" also occurs when a subscriber of one wireless service provider uses the facilities of another wireless service provider. Roaming usually occurs when you make and receive calls outside of your network coverage area. When your Cellular One FlexFone is roaming, an indicator light on your handset may display the word "Roam" “R” or "RM" on the screen while the phone is not in use. For most Cellular One PREPAID PLANS, roaming calls are charged airtime per minute. Availability, quality of coverage and services while roaming are not guaranteed.
Service is subject to transmission limitations caused by certain equipment and compatibility issues, atmospheric, topographical and other conditions. Further, Service may be temporarily refused, limited, interrupted or curtailed due to system capacity limitations, technology migration or limitations imposed by Cellular One or another carrier if you are roaming, or because of equipment modifications, upgrades, repairs or relocations or other similar activities necessary or proper for the operation or improvement of the carrier’s radio telephone system. At any time, Cellular One reserves the right to substitute and/or replace any Cellular One equipment (including handsets) with other Cellular One equipment including handsets of comparable quality. Some functions and features referenced in the manufacturer’s manual for a particular Cellular One FlexFone handset may not be available on your Cellular One FlexFone. Cellular One does not warrant or guarantee availability of network or of any services at any specific time or geographic location or that the services will be provided without interruption. Cellular One shall not have any liability for service failures, outages or limitations of service. Because of the risk of being struck by lightning, you should not use your Cellular One FlexFone outside during a lightning storm. You should also unplug the Cellular One FlexFone power cord and charger to avoid electrical shock and/or fire during a lightning storm.
Certain mobile phone features may not be available throughout the entire network or their functionality may be limited.
