etc.) may be reported to the appropriate legal authorities for prosecution.
1.4 Can Kynect Change My Terms And Rates?
We may change any terms, conditions, rates, fees, expenses, or charges regarding your Services at any
time. We will provide you with notice of material changes (other than changes to governmental fees,
proportional charges for governmental mandates, roaming rates, administrative charges, or any other
charges beyond our control). You agree to pay any additional charges from the date of Service modification
(even if you paid for your Service in advance). You understand and agree that State and Federal Universal
Service Fees and other governmentally imposed fees, whether or not assessed directly upon you, may be
increased based upon the government’s or our calculations.
IF WE INCREASE THE PRICE OF ANY OF THE SERVICES TO WHICH YOU SUBSCRIBE, BEYOND
THE LIMITS SET FORTH IN THE PAGES WHERE YOU SELECTED YOUR FEATURES, OR IF WE
MATERIALLY DECREASE THE GEOGRAPHICAL AREA OF SERVICE (OTHER THAN A TEMPORARY
DECREASE FOR REPAIRS OR MAINTENANCE), WE WILL DISCLOSE THE CHANGE AT LEAST ONE
BILLING CYCLE IN ADVANCE (EITHER THROUGH A NOTICE WITH YOUR BILL, A TEXT MESSAGE
TO YOUR DEVICE, OR OTHERWISE), AND YOU MAY TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT.
1.5 How Will I Receive My Bill? What Charges Am I Responsible For? How Much Time Do I Have To
Dispute My Bill?
You are responsible for paying all charges for, or resulting from, Services provided under this Agreement,
including any activation fee that may apply to each voice or data line. Each month, you will receive an
electronic (paperless) bill from Kynect delivered to your official email address on file with Kynect. You are
required to keep your email address current and to notify us immediately of any change in your email
address. Monthly bills are required to be paid in full (including any disputed amounts) by the due date
shown on your invoice. Billing cycle dates may change from time to time. If you have authorized charges
to a credit card, debit card or checking account (collectively “Financial Account”), no additional notice or
consent will be required before billing to that Financial Account. We may require payment by money order,
cashier’s check, or a similarly secure form of payment at our discretion.
IF YOU DISPUTE ANY CHARGES ON YOUR BILL, YOU MUST NOTIFY US IN WRITING AT
14675 Dallas ParkwaySuite 150 Dallas, Texas 75254 WITHIN 60 DAYS OF THE DATE OF THE BILL OR
YOU WILL HAVE WAIVED YOUR RIGHT TO DISPUTE THE BILL AND TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY LEGAL
ACTION RAISING SUCH DISPUTE.
Charges include, without limitation, airtime, roaming, recurring monthly service, activation, administrative,
and late payment charges; regulatory cost recovery and other surcharges (e.g., Property Tax Allotment
applied with respect to your Number), optional feature charges; toll, collect call and directory assistance
charges; restoral and reactivation charges; any other charges or calls billed to your Number; and applicable
taxes and governmental fees, whether assessed directly upon you or upon Kynect.
If your Device is lost or stolen, you will be responsible for all charges incurred on your number until you
terminate Service. You also remain responsible for paying your monthly Service fee if your Service is
suspended for nonpayment.
To determine your primary place of use (“PPU”) and which jurisdiction’s taxes and assessments to collect,
you are required to provide us with your residential or business street address. If you do not provide us with
such address, or if it falls outside our licensed Services area, we may reasonably designate a PPU within
the licensed Services area for you. You must live and have a mailing address within one of Kynect’s host
carrier owned network coverage areas.
1.6 How Does Kynect Calculate My Bill?
Usage and monthly fees will be billed as specified in your customer service summary or rate plan
information online. You may order a Device that will be shipped to you and your Services may be activated
before you take delivery of the Device so that you can use it promptly upon receipt. Thus, you may be
charged for Services while your Device is still in transit. You agree to pay for all services used with your
DATA TRANSPORT OR USAGE IS CALCULATED IN FULL-KILOBYTE INCREMENTS, AND ACTUAL
TRANSPORT OR USAGE IS ROUNDED UP TO THE NEXT FULL-KILOBYTE INCREMENT AT THE END
OF EACH DATA SESSION FOR BILLING PURPOSES. KYNECT CALCULATES A FULL KILOBYTE OF
DATA TRANSPORT/USAGE FOR EVERY FRACTION OF THE LAST KILOBYTE OF DATA
TRANSPORT/USAGE USED ON EACH DATA SESSION. TRANSPORT OR USAGE IS BILLED EITHER
BY THE KILOBYTE (“KB”) OR MEGABYTE (“MB”). IF BILLED BY MB, THE FULL KBs CALCULATED
FOR EACH DATA SESSION DURING THE BILLING PERIOD ARE TOTALED AND ROUNDED UP TO
NEXT FULL MB INCREMENT TO DETERMINE BILLING. IF BILLED BY KB, THE FULL KBs
CALCULATED FOR EACH DATA SESSION DURING THE BILLING PERIOD ARE TOTALED TO
DETERMINE BILLING. NETWORK OVERHEAD, SOFTWARE UPDATE REQUESTS, EMAIL
NOTIFICATIONS, AND RESEND REQUESTS CAUSED BY NETWORK ERRORS CAN INCREASE
MEASURED KILOBYTES. DATA TRANSPORT/USAGE OCCURS WHENEVER YOUR DEVICE IS
CONNECTED TO OUR NETWORK AND IS ENGAGED IN ANY DATA TRANSMISSION, AS DISCUSSED
IN MORE DETAIL IN SECTION 6.4.
If you select a rate plan that includes a predetermined allotment of Services (for example, a predetermined
amount of airtime, megabytes or messages), unless otherwise specifically provided as a part of such rate
plan, any unused allotment of Services from one billing cycle will not carry over to any other billing cycle.
We may bill you in a format as we determine from time to time. Additional charges may apply for detailed
information about your usage of Services.
Billing of usage for calls, messages, data or other Services (such as usage when roaming on other carriers’
networks, including internationally) may occasionally be delayed. Such usage charges may appear in a
later billing cycle, will be deducted from Services allotments for the month when the usage is actually billed,
and may result in additional charges for that month.
1.7 Are Advance Payments And/Or Deposits Required?
We may require you to make deposits or advance payments for Services, which we may offset against any
unpaid balance on your account. Interest will not be paid on advance payments or deposits unless required
by law. We may require additional advance payments or deposits if we determine that the initial payment
was inadequate. Based on your creditworthiness as we determine it, we may establish a credit limit and
restrict Services or features. If your account balance goes beyond the limit we set for you, we may
immediately interrupt or suspend Services until your balance is brought below the limit. Any charges you
incur in excess of your limit become immediately due. If you have more than one account with us, you must
keep all accounts in good standing to maintain Services. If one account is past due or over its limit, all
accounts in your name are subject to interruption or termination and all other available collection remedies.
1.8 What if I fail to pay my Wireless Bill when it is due?
You expressly authorize, and specifically consent to allowing, Kynect and/or its outside collection agencies,
outside counsel, or other agents to contact you in connection with any and all matters relating to unpaid
past due charges billed by Kynect to you. You agree that, for attempts to collect unpaid past due charges,
such contact may be made to any mailing address, telephone number, cellular phone number, e-mail
address, or any other electronic address that you have provided, or may in the future provide, to Kynect.
You agree and acknowledge that any e-mail address or any other electronic address that you provide to
Kynect is your address (i.e., belongs to you) and that your email account is not accessible to unauthorized
third parties. For attempts to collect unpaid charges, you agree that in addition to individual persons
attempting to communicate directly with you, any type of contact described above may be made using,
among other methods, pre-recorded or artificial voice messages delivered by an automatic telephone
dialing system, pre-set e-mail messages delivered by an automatic e-mailing system, or any other pre-set
electronic messages delivered by any other automatic electronic messaging system. We will charge you
up to $30 (or less, depending on applicable law) for any check or other instrument (including credit card
charge backs) returned unpaid for any reason.
1.9 Who Can Access My Account and for What Purpose?
You authorize us to provide information about and to make changes to your account, including the purchase
of Products and/or Services, upon the direction of any person you identify as authorized user who is able
to provide your designated password or appropriate identification verification information. Such access will
include, but is not limited to, the ability to view your account information, make changes to the plans under
your account, perform upgrades, view payment information, etc. You may make changes to your authorized
users and password by calling Kynect.
You consent to the use by us or our authorized agents of regular mail, predictive or autodialing equipment,
email, text messaging, facsimile or other reasonable means to contact you to advise you about our Services
or other matters we believe may be of interest to you. In any event, we reserve the right to contact you by
any means regarding customer service-related notifications, or other such information.
2.0 HOW DO I RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH KYNECT?
2.1 Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by calling our customer
service department at 833-859-6328. IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT THAT KYNECT’S CUSTOMER
SERVICE DEPARTMENT IS UNABLE TO RESOLVE A COMPLAINT TO YOUR SATISFACTION (OR IF
KYNECT HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO RESOLVE A DISPUTE IT HAS WITH YOU AFTER ATTEMPTING
TO DO SO INFORMALLY), WE EACH AGREE TO RESOLVE THOSE DISPUTES THROUGH BINDING
ARBITRATION OR SMALL CLAIMS COURT INSTEAD OF IN COURTS OF GENERAL JURISDICTION.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or
jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts.
Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER
THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND
CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. Moreover, in arbitration you are entitled to recover attorneys’
fees from Kynect to at least the same extent as you would be in court.
2.2 Arbitration Agreement
(1) Kynect and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. This agreement to arbitrate is
intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
• claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based
in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
• claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claims
relating to advertising or marketing);
• claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not
a member of a certified class; and
• claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
References to “ Kynect,” “you,” and “us” include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees,
predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or
beneficiaries of services or Devices under this or prior Agreements between us. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does
not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, including, for
example, the Federal Communications Commission. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief
against us on your behalf. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND
KYNECT ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS
ACTION. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration
Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive
termination of this Agreement.
(2) A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of
Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Kynect should be addressed to: Kynect, 14675 Dallas ParkwaySuite 150
Dallas, Texas 75254: Attn: General Counsel (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature
and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If Kynect and you
do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Kynect
may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made
by Kynect or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if
any, to which you or Kynect is entitled.
(3) The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures
for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”),
as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online
at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is
bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating
to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for the court to decide. Unless Kynect and
you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address.
(6) The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief
and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. YOU AND
KYNECT AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS
INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS
OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Kynect agree otherwise, the
arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any
form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then
the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
3.0 TERMS RELATING TO YOUR DEVICE AND CONTENT
3.1 Your Device
You are responsible for all phones and devices containing a SIM assigned to your Device. Your Device
must be compatible with, and not interfere with, our Services and must comply with all applicable laws,

appropriate for your typical usage, and other features that cannot be changed manually.
You agree to safeguard the SIM card and not to allow any unauthorized person to use your SIM card. You
agree not to, and not to allow any other person to, directly or indirectly alter, bypass, copy, deactivate,

to operate on any other system. Kynect or its host network provider may, at its sole and absolute discretion,
modify the programming to enable the operation of the Device on other systems. No amplifier, enhancer,
repeater, or other device or system may be used or installed on the wireless network without our prior
approval and the approval of our host network, if required.
Some functions and features reference in the manufacturer’s manual provided with your phone may not be
available on your Service. Certain mobile phone features may not be available throughout the entire

from operating with other compatible wireless telephone carriers’ services. If you wish to use this Device
with the service of another wireless telephone carrier, you must enter a numeric Unlock Code to unlock the
phone. Kynect will provide the process for obtaining the Unlock Code upon request, provided that you meet
certain criteria including, but not limited to the following: (a) you have paid for your Device in full; (b) your
account is in good standing (i.e. it has no past due amount or unpaid balance owed to Kynect); (c) your
Device has not been reported lost or stolen; and (d) Kynect has the Unlock Code or one can reasonably
obtain it from the manufacturer. Kynect will unlock a maximum of five phones per account, per year. For
further details on eligibility requirements and for assistance on obtaining the Unlock Code for your handset,
please call our customer service department.

technologies of our host network. See coverage map(s) on our website. Actual data speeds depend upon
your Device characteristics, existing network conditions, network availability and coverage levels in your
local area, tasks, file characteristics, applications and other factors. Performance may be impacted by
transmission limitations, terrain, in-building/in-vehicle use and capacity constraints.

3.4 How Can I Get Mobile Content?

necessary to provide the relevant customized 411 information and will be discarded after such use.
3.7 What If My Device Is Lost Or Stolen?
If your wireless Device is lost or stolen, you must contact us immediately to report the Device lost or stolen.

evidence that the call was authorized. Once you report to us that the Device is lost or stolen, you will not
be responsible for subsequent charges incurred by that Device.

Services originated or received while outside your plan’s included coverage area are subject to roaming
charges. Domestic roaming charges for wireless data or voice Services may be charged with some plans
when outside our wireless network. Use of Services when roaming is dependent upon roaming carrier’s
support of applicable network technology and functionality. Display on your device may not indicate whether
you will incur roaming charges. Check with roaming carriers individually for support and coverage details.
Billing for roaming charges may be delayed up to three (3) billing cycles due to reporting between carriers.
4.6.1 International Roaming
Compatible device and enrollment in Kynect Global Pass required. Kynect Communications, LLC, in its
sole discretion, may block your ability to use your device while roaming internationally until eligibility
criteria are met. International calling rates, which vary by country, apply for all calls placed or received
while outside the United States, Puerto Rico and U.S.V.I. Please consult
https://wekynect.com/en/services/mobile/international. All countries may not be available for roaming.
Availability, quality of coverage and services while roaming are not guaranteed. When roaming
internationally, you will be charged international roaming airtime rates including when incoming calls are
routed to voicemail, even if no message is left.
4.6.1 International Data
Requires enrollment in Global Pass which includes 2GB of international data. If customer exceeds 2GB of
international data usage, optional 2GB top up may be purchased from Kynect. To purchase top up call Wireless Services
at 214-560-5730. Top up may not be combined with allocated amount, any remaining allocated amount will be
conceded if top up is added. Maximum of 4GB of international data may be used in any given billing period. International
data usage applies to all data usage outside the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S.V.I., including accessing cloud-based
services to upload/download/Kynect content. International data roaming may be reduced to 2G speeds. Kynect may
send "alerts" via SMS or email, to notify you of data usage. These are courtesy alerts. There is no guarantee you will
receive them. They are not a guarantee of a particular bill limit.4.6.1. 1 Cruise Ship Roaming:
Cruise ship roaming rates apply for calls placed or data used while on the ship.

5.0 WHAT VOICE SERVICES DOES KYNECT OFFER?
5.1 What Are The General Terms That Apply To All Kynect Voice Rate Plans?
You may obtain usage information by calling customer service or using one of our automated systems.
Prices do not include taxes, directory assistance, roaming, Universal Service Fees, and other surcharges.
Activation Fee may apply for each new line. Included long distance calls can be made from the continental
United States. Roaming charges do not apply when roaming within the Services area of land-based
networks in this coverage area. Additional charges apply to Services used outside of this coverage area.
You are solely responsible for establishing and maintaining security passwords to protect against
unauthorized use of your voicemail service. We reserve the right to change the number of voicemails you
can store, the length you can store voicemail messages, when we delete voicemail messages, and other
voicemail features without notice. We may deactivate your voicemail service if you do not initialize it within
a reasonable period after activation. We will reactivate the service upon your request.
5.3 Voicemail-To-Text (VMTT)
If we offer you VMTT, Kynect is not responsible, nor liable for: 1) errors in the conversion of or its inability
to transcribe voicemail messages to text/email; 2) lost or misdirected messages; or, 3) content that is
unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, obscene, tortious, or otherwise objectionable.
We do not filter, edit or control voice, text, or email messages, or guarantee the security of messages. We
can interrupt, restrict or terminate VMTT without notice, if your use of VMTT adversely impacts the network,
for example that could occur from abnormal calling patterns or an unusually large number of repeated calls
and messages; or if your use is otherwise abusive, fraudulent, or does not comply with the law.
You are solely responsible for and will comply with all applicable laws as to the content of any text messages
or emails you receive from VMTT that you forward or include in a reply to any other person. You authorize
Kynect or a third party working on Kynect’s behalf to listen to, and transcribe all or part of a voicemail
message and to convert such voicemail message into text/email, and to use voicemail messages and
transcriptions to enhance, train and improve speech recognition and transcription services, software and
Charges for VMTT include the conversion of the voicemail message and the text message sent to your
wireless device. Additional charges, however, may apply to receiving email on your wireless device from
VMTT, as well as, replying to or forwarding VMTT messages via SMS (text) or email, depending on your
SMS (text messaging) blocking is incompatible with VMTT. (If you do not have a texting plan on your
handset, we add a texting pay per use feature when you add VMTT with text delivery.) If you are traveling
outside the U.S. coverage area, you will incur international data charges for emails received from VMTT,
as well as, charges for emails you respond to or forward from VMTT, unless you have an international data
plan and the usage falls within the plan’s usage limits.
Transcription times cannot be guaranteed. Customers purchasing email delivery are responsible for
providing a correct email address and updating the email address when changes to the email account are
If you choose SMS (text) delivery, VMTT only converts the first 480 characters of a voicemail message into
text and you will receive up to three text messages of a transcribed message. The transcription, therefore,
may not include the entire voicemail message with SMS delivery. Adding VMTT will create a new voicemail
box and all messages and greetings will be deleted from your current voicemail box.
5.4 Unlimited Voice Services
Unlimited voice Services are provided primarily for live dialog between two individuals. If your use of
unlimited voice Services for conference calling or call forwarding is reasonably considered by Kynect to be
excessive, Kynect may, at its option, terminate your Service.
Unlimited voice Services may not be used for monitoring services, data transmissions, transmission of
broadcasts, transmission of recorded material, or other connections which don’t consist of uninterrupted
live dialog between two individuals. If Kynect finds that you’re using an unlimited voice Service offering for
other than live dialog between two individuals, Kynect may, at its option terminate your Service or change
your plan to one with no unlimited usage components. Kynect will provide notice that it intends to take any
of the above actions, and you may terminate the agreement.
5.5 Caller ID
Your caller identification information (such as your name and phone number) may be displayed on the
Device or bill of the person receiving your call; technical limitations may, in some circumstances, prevent
you from blocking the transmission of caller identification information. Caller ID blocking is not available
when using Data Services, and your wireless number is transmitted to Internet sites you visit.
5.6 WiFi Calling
Wi-Fi Calling is available on select devices. Certain services may be incompatible or not available with WiFi Calling and certain apps may be removed from your phone. You must reside in the U.S. and your primary
usage must occur on our U.S. network. You are not authorized to use the service in countries where Wi-Fi
Calling is prohibited by law. Use of VPNs to avoid international calling restrictions is a breach of terms and
conditions and is not supported. 9-1-1 service through Wi-Fi Calling may not be available or may be limited
or not as accurate compared to traditional 9-1-1 service due to circumstances including, but not limited to,
relocation of equipment, internet congestion or connection failure, loss of electrical power, delays in
availability of registered location information and/or other technical problems. So that
emergency responders can locate the emergency location, customer agrees to always be prepared to
report their precise location of the emergency to emergency responders and to share this requirement with
all persons located at the premise.

9.0 WHAT TERMS APPLY ONLY TO SPECIFIC STATES?
9.1 California: What If There Are Unauthorized Charges Billed To My Device?
You are not liable for charges you did not authorize, but the fact that a call was placed from your Device is
evidence that the call was authorized. Unauthorized charges may include calls made to or from your phone
or other Device after it was lost or stolen. Once you report to us that the Device is lost or stolen and your
Device is suspended, you will not be responsible for subsequent charges incurred by that Device. You can
report your Device as lost or stolen and suspend Services without a charge by contacting us at the phone
number listed on your bill. If you notify us of any charges on your bill you claim are unauthorized, we will
investigate. If there are charges on your bill for calls made after the Device was lost or stolen, but before
you reported it to us, notify us of the disputed charges and we will investigate. You may submit documents,
statements and other information to show any charges were not authorized. We will advise you of the result
of our investigation within 30 days. If you do not agree with the outcome, you may file a complaint with the
California Public Utilities Commission and you may have other legal rights. While an investigation is
underway, you do not have to pay any charges you dispute or associated late charges, and we will not send
the disputed amount to collection or file an adverse credit report about it. While your phone is suspended
you will remain responsible for complying with all other obligations under this Agreement, including but not
limited to, your monthly fee. We both have a duty to act in good faith and in a reasonable and responsible
