Burner Duration, Minutes and Messages

When you create a new Burner number, you have several options for which Burner type you buy, and each one has a different configuration of duration, minutes, and messages.  For example, a Mini-Burner is good for 7 days, 20 minutes of voice, or 60 text messages.

What this means is that a Mini-Burner will expire at the earliest of the following events:
  • 7 days after you create it
  • After you use up 20 voice minutes, or 60 text messages, or a proportional combination of the two. Please note: Each voice minute is equivalent to 3 text messages. For example if you have 20 voice minutes or 60 text messages,  and send 3 text messages, you will see a new total of 19 voice minutes or 57 text messages.
  • When you burn the number via the app
Unused minutes, messages, and duration are forfeited when the number is burned.  For example, leftover voice minutes at the end of a 30-day Burner cannot be recovered if it expires.

Burners can be extended via the settings button and "extend Burner" dialogue.  Any additional duration or minutes purchased as an extension are additive to your current duration and minutes.  (For example, if you buy a 30-day, 50-minute Burner extension for an existing burner with 10 days and 15 minutes left on it, it will result in a Burner that has 40 days and/or 65 minutes left to go.)

When you manually burn a Burner number, any remaining duration, minutes, or messages are forfeit.
