How the Charges are applied when you Change the Billing Plan of your DID number
VoIP.ms offer two different billing plans for your USA and Canada DID numbers: Per Minute and Flat Rate (for Residential usage), it means there are two different possible changes:
A) Per Minute to Flat Rate, in this case the system will charge you the monthly fee on the same date of the new billing plan.
B) Flat Rate to Per Minute, in this case the system will not charge you for this plan modification and will not change your billing date. On the next billing date of the DID the number will be charged according to the per minute monthly fee. However, take notice that once this change is made the system will start charging your calls according the per minute rate.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If for any reason the system does not allow you to change the Billing plan of your DID number, you need to contact the support staff of VoIP.ms in order to change the plan.
