  • Think of it this way:

    As long as you have plan specific national talk credit available, you have access to Ultra Zero's 1,000 accumulative free talk minutes to the selected countries. For Example: 250 minutes of included National Talk can now be used towards calling China or Mexico landline for those 250 minutes. After these are used, you can buy additional National Talk minutes with UltraUp and apply these minutes to up to another 750 minutes of international calls to the Ultra Zero countries.

    UltraUp is a new feature from Ultra Mobile that lets customers buy more 4G data or more minutes for their plan. UltraUp is perfect for subscribers who find they need more data or minutes than their monthly plan provides or who prefer to buy these services on demand.

  • Buy More Data

    The Buy More Data feature is available on all of our plans. It provides our customers with the ability to purchase from 100 to 500 MB of additional 4G data.

    $19 and $29 Plans: The $19 and $29 plans come with 100MB of 4G data and 500MB of 4G data, respectively, and do not have unlimited data afterwards. When your data is used up, mobile data stops working. With UltraUp, subscribers who want to continue using 4G data can buy 50 ($2.50), 250 ($5.00), or 500MB ($10.00) of additional data.

    $39 and $49 Plans: These plans come with unlimited data at 128kbps. Our $39 and $49 plans also include 500MB and 1GB of 4G data respectively. Our Buy More Data feature now allows these plans to purchase an additional 500MB of 4G data for $10.00.

    If you use up the additional 4G data that you bought with UltraUp, your mobile data will return to the unlimited 128kbps data speed on your plan.

    Duration: Additional 4G data is valid from the moment of purchase until your current monthly billing period ends. At the start of your next billing period, your data is reset to the default data plan on your service. New data purchases will override all current monthly 4G data, so it is best to wait until all 4G data is used before purchasing more data.

    Immediacy: Additional data is applied to your plan immediately upon purchase. Any existing 4G data on your current data plan is overridden.
