How to Add Minutes to your ReachOut Wireless phone
Some people say 250 free minutes each month seems very generous. But in the real world, when you consider how dependent on our phones weâ€™ve all become, 250 minutes isnâ€™t really a lot of time.
The good people at ReachOut Wireless offer their customers 250 minutes each month, but they are the first to realize that that may not be sufficient to get a lot of people through the month. So they offer their Lifeline customers an assortment of ways to add extra minutes.
But before we get into the specifics, we want to point out one huge difference between ReachOut minutes and minutes from some of their competitors: Additional ReachOut Wireless cell phone minutes never expire. Never! These Refill Minutes, as ReachOut calls them, simply roll over to the next month. So you can rest assured that every minute you buy for your phone will be valid until you use it. No matter how long it takes.
ReachOut makes it simple to add extra minutes by offering several ways to do it:
The Easiest Way: Contact ReachOut directly
The simplest way to get more minutes is to call ReachOut Wireless or go to their website at ReachOutMobile.com and buy an airtime “card”. It’s not really a physical card, but that’s the common wording these companies use. You can buy Airtime Cards in increments from 20 minutes to 1,000 minutes. Once you purchase the card, you will add the airtime by entering the PIN you receive into the phone. Keep one thing in mind, though: You must enter the card’s PIN within one year of buying the phone.
