I acknowledge that by use of a Smithville cellular telephone plan I agree to the following terms and conditions:
- My Plan is incorporated herein by reference. "My Plan" includes my monthly service allowances and features, and the recurring access and pay-per-use charges associated with those allowances and features. To the extent any condition in my Plan expressly conflicts with this agreement, the condition in my Plan will govern.
- I understand that I have a limited number of pre-paid minutes under My Plan ("Plan Minutes") which allow me to use my cell phone without additional charge each month.
- I understand that use beyond my Plan Minutes will be charged at $0.45 per minute.
- Cellular plan prices do not include government-mandated taxes and fees such as E911 and Dual Party Relay (hearing impaired) service, and I agree to be responsible for such charges and any and all taxes, fees, and surcharges.
- I understand that a one-time activation fee of $25.00 will be charged to my first month's bill.
- I understand that text messages beyond the allotted free text messages under My Plan will be charged at $.15 per text sent or received.
- Picture messages beyond the allotted free text messages under My Plan will be charged at $.25 per message sent or received in addition to a data transport fee of up to $.70 based on the message size.
- I am "roaming" whenever I make or receive a call using a transmission site outside of the Verizon national network, and such calls will incur an additional surcharge of $.59 per minute.
- Calls made to, or received from, areas outside the United States will carry an additional per minute surcharge which varies depending on which country the call is made to or received from.
- A $15.00 charge will apply for cellular phone number changes requested by the customer.
- Directory Assistant calls are billed at $1.50 per call (minute usage also applies). Smithville Telecom will not waive any Directory Assistance charges incurred by the customer.

- Any Plan Minutes that I do not use in a month are forfeited and do not rollover to the next month.
- Airtime and other measured usage are billed in full-minute increments, and actual airtime and usage are rounded up to the next full increment at the end of each call for billing purposes. Calls placed on networks served by carriers other than Verizon will be applied against my anytime Plan minutes in the month in which the calls appear on my bill. Unanswered calls of 30 seconds or longer incur airtime.
- I agree that my wireless device won't be used for any purpose that is prohibited by law or the terms of this agreement.
- Unlimited voice services are provided solely for live dialog between two individuals. Unlimited voice services may not be used for conference calling, call forwarding, monitoring services, data transmissions, transmission of broadcasts, transmission of recorded material or other connections which do not consist of uninterrupted live dialog between two individuals. I understand that if I am found to be using unlimited voice service for uses other than that which it is intended, Smithville Telecom may, at their discretion, terminate my service or change my plan to one with no unlimited usage components. Smithville Telecom will notify me of their intentions to take any of the above actions and at that time I may terminate my agreement if I so choose.

- I understand that the coverage area for Smithville Cellular service is comparable to other national cell phone carriers and that the service availability or quality is not guaranteed. Service may be temporarily refused, interrupted, or limited at any time. Even within a coverage area, there are many factors, including network capacity, terrain, proximity to buildings, foliage and weather, that may impact availability and quality of service.
- I understand that my handset may produce radio interference with other electronic devices.
- I understand that the cell phone kit(s) consisting of a Cell Phone, Battery, and A/C Charger ( the "Kit"), that it is a "loaner" and that it is and remains the property of Smithville Telecom. If I cancel my cellular service I must return the Kit to Smithville Telecom or be charged up to $90.00 for the cost of the Kit plus any and all costs associated with the recovery of the Kit, including legal fees and expenses. Charges for a non-returned Kit, or missing Kit items, will apply at the time of cancelation. A credit will be issued when the Kit (or Kit items) is (are) returned in working condition.

For this policy to apply the entire Kit must be returned and all pieces must be in the same condition as when they were originally purchased.
- Should any part of the Kit become inoperable under normal operating conditions, Smithville Telecom will replace, at its sole expense, the inoperable item by mail or I may pick it up at the Smithville Retail Center. I understand that I am responsible for lost or broken Kit items that become lost or inoperable due to my misuse, negligence or accident.
- For up to one (1) year, Smithville Telecom will repair my purchased phone for free if the phone has a factory malfunction. Smithville Telecom will provide me with a loaner phone while my phone is being repaired. Phones that are damaged by me are not covered by this policy. This policy only covers purchased phones that malfunction in the course of normal use.
- Smithville Telecom will incur no liability for the acts or omissions of any cellular carrier including the carrier terminating a reseller agreement, or curtailing, denying, suspending, or terminating service, or making service subject to additional, new, or different terms and conditions.
- My qualification for certain Smithville Telecom Plans will depend on my payment history. Upon review of my payment history, Smithville Telecom, in its sole discretion, will determine my eligibility for certain plans. If my payment history is approved, my account will be allowed up to the maximum number of phones and be subject to the standard service terms as set forth herein. If my payment history is not approved, my account will be limited to two phones and I may subscribe to any Telispire Plan; however Smithville Telecom may immediately suspend my service if I fail to pay any and all amounts due for my account on the applicable due date; provided, however, that if my bill is paid on-time for six months, my account may be eligible for additional phones and to be subject to the standard service terms as set forth herein.
- Smithville Telecom retains the right to cancel or discontinue my cellular service at any time upon advance notice to subscribers. Smithville Telecom may, without notice, suspend my service if the current amount of my bill is $75.00 or greater and I fail to pay such bill on the date that it is due. If my cellular service is suspended for more than five (5) business days, I understand that my cellular telephone number may be reassigned and may no longer be available for my use.
- I am responsible for all charges billed to my cellular service number(s). Payment is due in full as stated on my bill. IF SMITHVILLE TELECOM DOES NOT RECEIVE PAYMENT IN FULL WHEN DUE, SMITHVILLE TELECOM MAY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY INDIANA STATE LAW, CHARGE ME A LATE FEE OF UP TO 1.5 PERCENT A MONTH (18 PERCENT ANNUALLY), OR A FLAT $5 A MONTH, WHICHEVER IS GREATER, ON UNPAID BALANCES.
- If my phone is lost or stolen I am responsible for all charges up to the time that I report the event to Smithville Telecom. I can call Smithville Telecom 24 hours a day at (812) 876-2211 or (800) 742-4084.
- In the course of providing services to me, Smithville Telecom may collect certain information that is made available to them solely by virtue of the relationship with me, such as information about the quantity, technical configuration, type, destination and amount of my use of the telecommunications services I purchase. This information and related billing information is known as Customer Proprietary Network Information, or CPNI. (CPNI does not include my name, address or wireless phone number.) Except as provided in this agreement, Smithville Telecom won't intentionally share my CPNI or other personal information without my permission. SUBJECT TO THE FOREGOING, SMITHVILLE TELECOM MAY USE AND SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT ME AND HOW I USE ANY OF THE SERVICES: (A) SO SMITHVILLE TELECOM CAN PROVIDE GOODS OR SERVICES TO ME; (B) SO OTHERS CAN PROVIDE GOODS OR SERVICES TO SMITHVILLE TELECOM OR TO ME ON BEHALF OF SMITHVILLE TELECOM; (C) SO SMITHVILLE TELECOM OR ITS AFFILIATES IN THE SMITHVILLE TELECOM GROUP OF COMPANIES CAN COMMUNICATE WITH ME ABOUT GOODS OR SERVICES THAT ANY OF THEM OFFER; (D) TO PROTECT SMITHVILLE TELECOM; OR (E) AS REQUIRED BY LAW, LEGAL PROCESS OR EXIGENT CIRCUMSTANCES.
- I understand that I must be at least eighteen (18) years old to subscribe to services from Smithville Telecom. I may be required to show proof of my age and identity.
- I may, at any time, choose to cancel My Plan and this Agreement. At that time, I will be charged a prorated amount based on the services I have actually used and the amount of time left in my monthly billing cycle. I understand that I will incur overage fees if I have used more than the prorated amount of My Free Plan minutes for the month in which I am cancelling. For example: If I am exactly halfway through my monthly billing cycle, I will be charged overage fees for any minutes used beyond half of my Free Plan Minutes. There is, however, no penalty for canceling my Plan and I may do so at any time.
- If Smithville Telecom does not enforce any right or remedy available under these terms and conditions, that failure is not a waiver by Smithville Telecom of the right or remedy for the applicable breach or failure or for any other breach or failure. Waiver of any requirement in one instance is not a general waiver of that requirement and does not amend this agreement. If any part of these terms and conditions are held invalid or unenforceable, the rest of these terms will hold as though the breaching part was not part of these terms and conditions.
SMITHVILLE TELECOM IS NOT THE MANUFACTURER OF MY WIRELESS DEVICE. SMITHVILLE TELECOM MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE CONCERNING MY SERVICE OR WIRELESS DEVICE, OR ANY APPLICATIONS I ACCESS THROUGH MY DEVICE.

If I use cellular services from Smithville Telecom on or after the effective date of the changes or make any payment on or after the effective date of the changes, I understand this is seen as my acceptance of the changes.
