1. How does PAYGO data work?

If you are without a data plan or bundle, you will have the option to opt-in to use Pay As You Go Data.  Once you opt in, data usage will be charged at USD $0.33/MB.  This is the rate should you choose not to subscribe to a Digicel Prime Plan.

3. What happens if I dismiss or ignore the UMM pop up?

Once Pay Go is enabled, it will auto renew every 30 days unless you disable/opt-out of Pay GO.


10. Do I need credit on my account to allow me to opt-in?

         No. Opting in to PayGo is a free service.


11. If I have an existing plan with data, can I opt-in to PAYGO and which plan takes priority?

13. Apart from the SMS, is there anywhere I could check/confirm that PAYGO is currently active?

Yes, you may verify that in MDA in the ‘active plan’ section.  Note, as MDA is a zero-rated app, you are allowed to use MDA while Pay-GO is disabled.
