What are roaming charges?
When you leave your local CellularOne coverage area and travel within another cellular system, you are roaming. Other cellular carriers bill CellularOne for your usage. In turn, CellularOne bills you for charges incurred in their markets. A daily access fee, airtime charges, and toll charges may appear on your bill depending on your service plan. Call Customer Solutions to see what charges will apply in that area.
What are the airtime charges?
Any call completed within the local coverage area will appear on your bill as "airtime" charges. These calls are billed in 60-second increments. You may be charged for unanswered calls if you allow the phone to ring for 60 seconds or more.
What are excessive calling, text or data usage?
Excessive is viewed by abnormal call duration, text/instant message duration and/or your continued eligibility for service or any plan (including data) may be limited or terminated for (a) consumer protection purposes, (b) abusive conduct or abnormal call pattern(s), or (c) significant roaming.
What do I do if I have an emergency?
Dialing 911 is a free call for CellularOne customers. CellularOne encourages its customers to report any emergencies or any need for police, fire or ambulatory assistance. You're calling from a mobile phone, so the operator will ask what the location of the emergency is. This works nationwide, so please report any emergency.

Does Cellular One comply with CTIA's Bill Shock?
Cellular One has updated its system in compliance with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines for "Bill Shock", or the "Wireless Consumer Usage Notification Guidelines", which provides free alerts both before and after subscribers reach monthly limits on voice, data and text. If you are on a plan with limited minutes, data, and/or texting you will receive one free text notification when you reach 80% and another free text when you reach 100% of your monthly limits. Subscribers will be covered by this plan unless they opt-out. Subscribers on unlimited postpaid plans or prepaid plans are not affected by this FCC requirement. Cellular One blocks all international roaming calls by default. In order to use your phone in foreign countries you need to contact Cellular One Customer Care at 1-800-730-2651 and ask that your phone be unlocked for use in a foreign country. Customers traveling abroad should be aware that international roaming charges can be exceptionally high. For more information see www.ctia.org.
