  1. Send a text message to 9080 with the word "BAL".  This is a free text message that will send you your current airtime balance.
  2. Create an online account.  Visit from your PC and set up your online account, and you'll always be able check your usage and your balance.

I cannot retrieve my balance for my phone. I have not received my new phone with the extra 100 minutes and when I try to retrieve my balance, I put in the text area 9080 like as I have done previously it comes back that it's the wrong text. What is going on with this phone and where is my new phone with my new number, I am told now that I do not have an account and I have used this number for the past 2 years.

Why can't I get technical support like I need it. I'm on the phone now going on a hour. And this internet is a joke.

where do you check your usage and balance on the care wireless website? Also, do I have to do something special to activate my new phone? It came with zero instructions...except the piece of paper that says "your care wireless number will transfer to this new phone in 2 business days" it's been 2 weeks, the phone don't seem to be activated? I get a busy signal when I call it from another phone.
