Select Connect! for affordable messaging and web access.

We've made it easy, simple, and affordable for families and seniors alike to send text messages and access the web with their cell phone. And no matter which Connect! plan you select, our automated Usage Alerts help protect you from unnecessary overage charges.

The Connect! service includes:

Text and picture messaging.

Our messaging service lets you send and receive both text and picture messages. Use your cell phone to send and receive text messages of up to 160 characters, exchange text messages with another cell phone or send a message via email. Plus, you'll be able to take a picture and send it immediately, or send an existing picture — all from your phone.

Web browsing.

Search Google for directions, keep up with the latest news, check the score of the game, or entertain yourself with one of your favorite apps. You can even use this service to purchase and download ringtones, wallpapers, and games.

Due to the extremely large amount of data required to watch videos (on Netflix or YouTube), stream music, or download large files, these activities are not recommended with our data service plans.

Select the right phone.

Most, but not all, of our phones support data and web browsing. If you're interested in this service, be sure to select a phone that supports it.

Billing for additional use.

Messages beyond the plan are billed at 10 cents per message except for Connect! Max, which is 5 cents per message. Any web usage beyond the plan is billed at 25 cents per megabyte except for Connect! Max, which is 1.5 cents per megabyte. Any items (ringtones, wallpapers, etc.) purchased through this service are charged separately.

Altering services.

Data or messaging may be turned on or off by phone. Turning off one of the services for a selected phone, or for all lines, does not affect the price of the plan.

Sharing Connect!

If you share your voice service with other phones, you will also share your Connect! service. In contrast to other carriers, there is no additional cost — the $10 fee for the additional phone covers sharing of both the voice plan and the Connect! service.
