SIM Activation, Minimum Monthly Usage & Monthly Maintenance Fees for Inactive SIMs
Choice Wireless Solutions provides a grace period of 60 days after the date of SIM purchase for the SIM to be activated. This is provided for logistics and installation in the field. If Customer does not activate the SIM within 60 days after the SIM purchase, the SIM will be activated automatically by the system.
For non-pooled accounts each active (not blocked) SIM card on a corporate account is subject to a minimum monthly usage requirement. SIM cards with monthly usage below the minimum requirement will be charged the difference up to the minimum per month. For example, if the total usage on the SIM card during the monthly period is $1.50 and the monthly minimum requirement is $2.00, Customer will be charged $0.50 to satisfy the monthly minimum charge. Conversely, if the SIM’s usage is over $1.99 then Customer will not incur any additional charges. The 30 day SIM billing period begins the day the SIM card is activated on the account.
Each blocked SIM within the account will be charged a $0.50 monthly maintenance fee. Any monthly minimum requirement does not apply to blocked SIM cards.
For pooled accounts, the monthly minimum fee does not apply. “Overage” is defined as any usage over the pool size or usage in countries outside of the pool coverage. Overage will be charged at per MB rate for the country where the SIM card is located when it used Overage.
Pre-paid SIM cards that have not been funded for 30 days to satisfy the minimum use fee or Block fee will be suspended. Suspended for non-payment SIM cards will incur a service restoration fee of $5.00. SIM cards that have been suspended for 3 months of non-payment will be permanently removed.

Data usage charges, and all other fees, will be deducted from Customer’s prepaid account as incurred and without notice to Customer.
Customer charges shall include, without limitation, data usage charges, charges for cellular telephone minutes usage, forwarding features, messaging fees, monthly fees, and any other fees, or charges applicable to the Service, plus taxes and surcharges. If any individual activates Service on behalf of the Customer but was not authorized to do so, Customer agrees that it shall nevertheless be responsible for the corresponding charges, and such individual will be jointly and severally, together with the Customer, responsible for all charges to the account and will be fully bound by this Agreement as though he or she had activated Service on behalf of the Customer.
