What is a security deposit?

In some cases, because of your credit rating or usage charges, we may require a refundable security deposit from you. This may happen at any time during the term of your service agreement.

Once six months have passed with timely and consistent payments of your account in full, the deposit will either be returned to you or applied to your account.

Security deposits are explained in section 14 of the Wireless Terms of Service, your agreement with Solo Mobile.

Why do text messages and data usage not reflect the correct time on my bill?

Time indicated on the invoice for text messaging is always Eastern Standard Time; however, Mobile Browser, 1X data and RIM usage on an invoice are shown in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time – world time) and not the time the usage was actually incurred. The servers use GMT as a universal standard and cannot be modified to reflect the different time zones.
