Network Coverage & Service Speeds
The radio transmissions your Device pin-points in a specified area of Service and the Services you’ve chosen will determine your “Network Coverage”. vMobile service coverage maps are available on our website. Our coverage maps provide an illustration of estimated high-level Network Coverage areas where you can receive optimal Service outdoors. Several factors may impact Network Coverage & Service Speeds, including but not limited to: (1) the environment and building structures; (2) network or internet congestion; (3) weather and geography. These factors may result in dropped and blocked connections. E911 and GPS navigation depend on Your Device’s ability to acquire a satellite signal to transmit your location. If You are inside a solid structure or in an area where coverage is limited, Your Device will not be able to perform properly. As Your Device updates software the Service Speed drops until the software update is complete. We cannot guarantee that Your Device will receive the proper Network Coverage or adequate Service Speeds everywhere. The coverage area is subject to change without notice.
Roaming, Data Services & Content
The term “Roaming” refers to coverage on another carrier’s network which is made available for a cellular customer to automatically make and receive voice calls, send and receive data, or accesses other services, based on our Agreements with such other carriers. This too may include, but may not be limited to, home data services when traveling outside the geographical coverage area of the home network, by means of using a visited network.
Roaming coverage is determined by the radio transmission signal Your Device receives both within and outside our network coverage areas and the availability of roaming coverage may be based on Your Services. [Note: Additional fees/charges may apply for the amount of minutes used while roaming.] Review Your vMobile Service Plan for more information on whether additional fees/charges for roaming, data service, and content apply. Your Device will alert You while accessing a network if You are placing a call while roaming. If roaming is not mentioned in Your plan, You will not be billed for roaming in the continental lower 48 states unless more than 5% of Your total cellular call traffic is roaming off of Our primary network. If more than 5% of Your traffic is roaming in the continental lower 48 states, We reserve the right to bill you seven cents ($.07) per minute for every call that roams. To prevent roaming charges, You may turn off the ability for Your phone to register to an alternative network (known as roaming) in Your Device’s settings menu.
We provide You with data service based on Your Service Plan that may allow You to access the Internet, send and receive email, send and receive texts, view video, play games, download applications, listen to music, and other options known as “Data Content”.

If You as the Account Holder allow anyone to access or use the Device, You are willingly providing the end-user or users authorization to access, download, and use Your Services.

Charges on Your vMobile account are generally deducted from the account balance, such as subscription charges or pay-per use charges. Certain Services may be paid through a debit card, credit card, or other payment method. Any outstanding, unpaid charges and fees from subsequent amounts You add to Your account balance we may deduct if You incur fees/charges that were not charged prior to Your account balance zeroing out.
Types of Charges
We typically measure three types of charges that You (the end-user) access a Service by either subscribing, or periodic use, or while accessing content and downloading. As defined: (1) Subscription Charges – permit You access to a Service(s) or provide You Service(s) during a designated time period; (2) Pay-Per-Use Charges – provide You access as needed and is measured each time a Service is used; (3) Download Charges – are charges measured at the time of downloading or accessing content, which we collect on behalf of ourselves or third party content providers. Based on Your Service, some types of subscription charges may be measured routinely at time of activation and automatically for subsequent subscription periods. [Note: Subscription charges for Services end daily at 11:59 p.m. (based on Your time zone) and on the last day of Your subscription period.]
How We Calculate Charges to Your Account
You will be billed according to your vMobile Service Plan. Services will be billed based on the amount of time used or data sent or received, in which case we round up any fraction to the next full minute. For outgoing calls, usage time begins at the first press of SEND or the call connects to a network. Incoming calls may not connect to a network before charges start. You are charged for all calls that connect to an answering machine, voicemail, or answering transcription service at the rate that applies to the time period in which the call starts. NO CHARGE for unanswered calls. All incoming and outgoing calls will be billed per minute per Your Service Plan. The call time data display on Your Device may be an inaccurate source in determining charges to Your account. A single call may be limited or automatically terminated if it exceeds the limit as defined in your Service Plan.
Short Messaging Service (“SMS”) or Multimedia Messaging Service (“MMS”) collectively known as “Text(s)” will be billed based on Your Service Plan. If billed, Texts will be billed per each Text sent regardless if the other party receives the Text. Please note, MMS Service is currently unavailable. These vMobile Terms and Conditions will be changed once the Service is available.
If Your Service is billed for data usage, it is measured by bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, and gigabytes (not in minutes/time) for both downloads and uploads. Each data usage session is rounded up to equal at least 1 KB during or after the transmission of data. Based on Your Services, usage may be charged against an allowance or on a fixed price per KB. Data usage is subject to limitations, which is determined by Your vMobile account Service Plan. Any fractional cents are rounded up the next cent for data usage that is charged on a fixed per KB. You may incur data charges as long as Your Device is connected to our data networks.
Data Usage and Data Content fees and/or charges for which You may incur includes, yet is not limited to, graphics, logos, pictures, etc.; data used to access, transport, and route a file to Our network; data re sent; data downloads, partial or interrupted data; and data that has failed to connect to a website. For Data Content itself (ringer, game, music, etc.) additional charges will apply. The amount of data used and charged during identical actions or data sessions will vary based on the Device and Network. The size of a downloadable file is not an accurate estimate of actual data usage.
Taxes & Government Fees
We are required by law to collect federal, state, local taxes, and other assessments to remit to the government on the Services We provide to You. As the Account Holder, You agree to pay these charges with the understanding that these fees may change from time to time without advance notice. [Note: A valid exemption certificate is necessary if You are claiming any tax exemption, and do not apply retroactively.]
All “Surcharges” We incur are Your responsibility. These Surcharges may include, but not limited to: (a) administrative charges; (b) various regulatory charges; (c) Federal Universal Service; (d) gross receipts charges; (e) costs and other taxes imposed upon Us, which We then pass along to You. By law We are not required to assess Surcharges (surcharges are not taxes). We choose to separately bill and collect Surcharges from You for the Services We provide in addition to the rates described in Your Service Plan. The type of Surcharges will vary as will the number, based on the primary account address of the payee and payment method, and/or the location of the transaction and Device.
We determine how the rate for these Surcharges are calculated and the components used to do so, which are subject to change at any time. The formulas used to calculate surcharge amounts is set forth by the government; thereby, making it impossible to always provide advance notice of changes to any existing Surcharges or new Surcharges.
To dispute a charge on your vMobile account You are required to submit a written dispute to said charge(s) within thirty (30) days from the date We deducted the charge or charges from Your account. [Note: 20 days for Puerto Rico Customers] If the dispute to said charge(s) is not made within the appropriate time period, You accept and agree to pay all charges.
About Account Balances
Your vMobile account is subject to the terms and conditions of Your Service Plan. It may be required that a positive account balance is maintained to keep Your account active and avoid service interruptions, depending on your account type.

Examples of such calls include conversations you may have with our customer service or sales department. These calls are used in-house only (by the company) for the purpose of training and/or quality control.
Authentication and Contact: A personal identification number (“PIN”) and a backup security question and answer may be established by You (the Account Holder) to secure your personal information. The backup security Q & A (question and answer) is utilized in the event You forget your PIN and need assistance resetting it. It is Your responsibility as the Account Holder to take every measure in protecting access to Your account credentials (PIN, passwords, backup security Q & A) from loss or disclosure, and agree to these terms as such. You acknowledge that if any person (authorized or non-authorized) presents these credentials that We deem sufficient for account access, We may treat as an Authorized User on Your account and grant the release of information or authority to change Service(s). Furthermore, You agree that the contact information You provide may be used by Us for Service-related reason to contact You through other available means (email address, mobile number, mobile text messaging, fax, residential or business phone, or mailing address).
CPNI: You have the right under Federal Law and We have a duty to protect the confidentiality of Your Customer Proprietary Network Information “CPNI”, which includes information about the telecommunications services you use including: (1) the quantity; (2) type and location; (3) technical configuration; (4) and other subscriber information found on Your bill. To further protect Your information, We implement safeguards and contact authentication procedures in protecting Your CPNI. On vMobile accounts with a dedicated representative, We generally rely on contacting the pre-established point of contact as the standard authentication measure.
Third-Party Applications: With the use of a third-party application, it is required that We disclose Your personal information and location upon You accessing the application. By You accessing, using, or authorizing a third-party application through the Services We provide, You authorize Vitelity to release information related to Your use of the Services (the applications). You acknowledge the use of third-party applications is subject to their terms, conditions, policies and procedures. We recommend that You carefully review all third-party terms before use.
Information on Devices: We recommend that You remove all personal information that may contain sensitive content or data from your Device prior to submitting it to Us. Examples of such material include credit card numbers, passwords, pictures, and/or videos. Upon submitting your Device to Us, You acknowledge that You are aware that information not removed by You may be obtainable by Our employees, contractors, or vendors from Your Device. Our standard practice is to erase all data on a Device if You exchange, return or recycle it. Vitelity is not responsible for any information that remains on Your Device.
9-1-1 & Other Emergency Calls
Always be prepared when making an emergency call to 9-1-1. It is advised by public safety officials that You provide your contact number, location, and any other information that will assist in locating You to the operator. Not all local emergency service providers have access to the equipment and technology required to locate Your Device. The majority of Devices are equipped with a GPS; however, it is up to the end-user (You) to enable the service. In the event it is not enabled, 9-1-1 operators or emergency service providers that are equipped with the proper technology will not be able to locate You. It is common for an emergency call to be routed to a state patrol dispatcher or an alternative location set by emergency providers. With the enhanced 9-1-1 service (“E911″), emergency authorities that use GPS technology will be able to access Your location. [Note: Using the E911 Service does not guarantee that an emergency provider will receive accurate location information.] Several factors may interfere with satellite signals and You may not be located by emergency officials. If a 9-1-1 call fails to connect or call fails to complete or if inaccurate location information is provided, We are not responsible.
Local or Stolen Equipment
Vitelity requires that you notify Us immediately if your Device is lost or stolen. All usage charges are Your responsibility. As the Account Holder, You agree to cooperate with authorities and any investigation We deem necessary by providing sworn facts or police reports from local or state police departments. If You decide to terminate Your Service due to a lost or stolen Device, You will not receive a credit or refund on any account balance. Furthermore, We require You to notify Us regarding the status of Your Device (whether You have activated a new Device or it has been found) within 60 days of the suspension of Your account. In the event that You choose to not activate a new device or notify Us accordingly, We may assess a non-refundable charge (if applicable) equal to the balance in Your account and the phone number will no longer be available for Your use.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES & LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, (UNLESS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN WRITING), WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTIES, NEITHER EXPRESSED NOR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANT ABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE CONCERNING YOUR SERVICES.

You also agree to implement appropriate safeguards to secure Your equipment, Device, or computer and to back up Your information stored on each.
DISPUTE & ARBITRATION
HEREIN, VITELITY AND YOU BOTH AGREE TO FIRST CONTACT THE OTHER PARTY CONCERNING ANY DISPUTES AND PROVIDE A WRITTEN DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM. THIS IS TO INCLUDE RELEVANT DOCUMENTATION AND SUPPORTING INFORMATION WITH A PROPOSED RESOLUTION TO THE DISPUTE. IN REGARDS TO ARBITRATION – AS DESCRIBED BELOW, ANY PAST, PRESENT, OR FUTURE CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE AGREEMENT VITELITY AND YOU BOTH AGREE TO ARBITRATE ALL DISPUTES ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. THE INTENT OF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE IS TO BE BROADLY CONSTRUED. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION; HOWEVER, THE AGREEMENT SHALL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION UNDER ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES. BY LAW, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD DAMAGES AND RELIEF, INCLUDING ATTORNEY FEES. WITH SOME EXCEPTION UNDER THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT (“FAA”), THE ARBITRATOR’S DECISION AND AWARD IS FINAL AND BINDING. THE JUDGMENT ON THE AWARD MAY BE ENTERED IN ANY COURT HAVING COMPETENT JURISDICTION.
IN ADDITION, WE EACH ALSO AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
- “Disputes” are defined as any claims or controversies made against each other that are related to or arising from our Services or the vMobile Terms and Conditions. These disputes may pertain to Our billing services, customer care and services, advertising ethics, service claims, privacy, and termination of Services, coverage, and Devices. Dispute claims made by you may include: (a) issues you experience with sales representatives, employees, management, agents, affiliates; (b) issues you bring against third parties (retailers or suppliers) that pertain to the Service Plan or the vMobile Terms and Conditions. We too may bring a Dispute claim against you based on the contractual relationship, misrepresentation, statue, fraud, or any other legal theory.
- “Written Notice” is a document that initiates a claim to arbitrate a Dispute, which describes the reason for the dispute and what action or efforts have been made to resolve it. This also includes relevant documentation, supporting information, and the proposed resolution. It is agreed that we will each attempt to resolve the dispute prior (typically within 45 days) to filing a claim for arbitration.
- “Federal Arbitration Act” (“FAA”) applies to arbitration provision and the vMobile Terms and Conditions. Vitelity and You each agree that the provisions provided by the FAA, not state law, will govern all questions if a dispute is subject to arbitration.
- “Arbitrator & Arbitration Location” is to be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator (third-party), based upon rules mutually agreed upon. [Note: The rules in selection of an arbitrator, filing, administration, discovery, and arbitrator fees are available at jamsadr.com] These rules and procedures are known as “JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures Fairness” and used to set the minimum standards for arbitration. Vitelity and You each agree the arbitration will take place in Denver, Colorado.
- “Arbitration Pursuit” is to be done on an individual basis and not on a class wide basis. You and Vitelity each agree that arbitration will be solely between You and Vitelity. The court or arbitrator may deem that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, if so the agreement to arbitrate will not apply and the dispute is to be held in a court of law.
- “Costs” will be the responsibility of both parties. You and Vitelity each agree to be responsible for our respective costs relating to counsel, witnesses, expert testimonials, and any other fees related to the arbitration of any dispute. Administrative, filing fees and arbitrator fees will be paid by Vitelity.
NO CLASS ACTIONS OR TRIAL BY JURY
THE RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES OR THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY ON A CLASS WIDE BASIS IS HEREBY WAIVED BY BOTH PARTIES (TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW). THIS IS IN REFERENCE TO: (1) PARTICIPATION IN THE CLAIM WITH OTHER PARTIES OR ORGANIZATION; (2) INTERJECTING A CLAIM ON THE BEHALF OF OTHER PARTIES IN OTHER PROCEEDINGS, LAWSUIT AND/OR ARBITRATION.
